ready for year 

PETER J. RISTUBEN, Vice-President and Dean of (he College, resigned this summer a- 
midst pressure from the Regents and President Mark Mathews. 

Ristuben leaves CLC 

by Michaela Crawford 

The formal resignation of Dr. Peter Ristuben, Vice-President of Academic Affairs and 
Dean of the College, became effective on July 15, 1977. He will assume the position of Aca- 
demic Dean at the State University of New York at Buffalo. A discussion in the Executive 
session at the Board of Regents on May 21 predicated Ristuben's decision. 

President Mark Mathews attributed the change in personnel to an annual evaluation which 
determined that certain segments of the administration were not proceeding "in the academic 
direction wanted." 

Mathews appointed Dr. Lyle Murley academic dean for the coming year. Mathews termed 
Murley "a fine scholar and educational administrator" who was chosen for his emphasis and 
work on academic planning. 

The permanent dean will be chosen by a search committee consisting of Dr. Ted Labrenz, 
Dr. James Evensen, Dr. Mary Margaret Thomas and Dr. Ed Swenson, faculty; Dean Ron Krag- 
thorpe and Dr. Chet Hausken, administration; Gail Ottomoeller and Kevin McKenzie; student 
representatives, and Dr. Philip Ordung, Regents.

vember 1, 1977. February 1, 1978. the search committee will recommend to Mathews three 
candidates. Mathews will then ask ASCLC President Craig Kinzer; Chairman of the Regent- 
Di. Donald Ziehl and Vii« Chditmau, Mi. ttuuo+t ihwpt.; the Chain* 
ciation; and Pastor Gerry Swanson, to evaluate the nominees. By Marc*

Dr. Peter Ristuben arrived from Wagner Col- 
lege, New York, four years ago. While living In 
Thousand Oaks he was an active community 
member through his appointment to the Thou- 
sand Oaks Planning Commission. 

Reached by phone at his home, Ristuben 
stated that "I feel a sense of pride in the fa- 
culty and institution for what has happened in 
the improvement of the academic climate and 
the stress the students and faculty place on aca- 
demics. I have the highest regard for the insti- 
tution and the students, who are fortunate to 
have such an excellent faculty. The faculty is 
very supportive of higher academic expecta- 
tions and standards," 

Ristuben's respect for the college and facul- 
ty is generally reciprocated by the college com 
munity. President Mark Mathews demonstra 
ted this when he said, "Ristuben is a tremen 
dous human being who made a significant con 
tribution to CLC." 

Dr. John Kuethe stated that "Ristuben's 
greatest cjntribution was to promote the con- 
cept of thi* mentor. He promoted the idea that 
every faculty member is more than an advisor 
to a few but is available over the four years.

tor and students, who are adjusting for the best

Murley said, "Ristuben and I worked very 
closely together on various projects, including 
the accreditation report. We worked in con- 
junction with one another. We both had a lot 
of confidence in functioning with the faculty." 

Other speakers at the faculty farewell din- 
ner for Ristuben, besides Kuethe, were Dr. Pam 
Rich and Dr. Leonard Smith who offered the

Rich summarized what she felt were Ristu- 
ben's main contributions by saying, "What I 
have appreciated most about Peter's tenure as 
Dean has been his over-arching concern for pro-

of the institution. It seems to me that without 
that, we have no reason for being. This con-

G ood vibes and 
e health service 

by Lucy Ballard 

"You need to take control of your life in a positive way to 
get what you want out of college." So states a 1976 graduate 
of a small liberal arts college. Many external forces affect how 
positively one can control his life in a new environment. 
Health and emotional barriers must be readily recognized by 
the students as they produce a complex pattern of vibrations 
touching the lives of many students. Subsequently, per«in* 
and places where assistance is available should be identified if 
one is to function to his potential. 

The College Health nurse is often the initial contact for per- 
sonal health and emotional problems of students who are ex- 
periencing trials and tribulations related to their transition to- 
ward independence and search for identity. Many students live 
marginal life styles in an attempt to satisfy their parents and 
yet attain independence from them. The emotional tug of war 
is mediated by the adoption of conflicting values and the crea- 
tion of a "new maturity". One may seem to go from one crisis 
to the next as he asks— Who am I? Where am I going? How can 
I be a sexually responsible person? Why don't parents under- 
stand me? Where can I get inexpensive health care from people 
who care about me? Concerns may arise concerning cancer, 
heart disease, nutrition, mononucleosis, hepatitis, alcoholism, 
drugs, birth control, etc. 

The nurse is often the critical point of reference as she is in 
a non-threatening role but she is an informed source of infor- 
mation for the student as he searches for someone who will lis- 
ten and respond. 

Because specific emotional problems are difficult to deal 

with in a general way, remarks here will be confined to other

We in Student Affairs try 
to work closely with students 
in solving their problems, es- 
pecially those that would get 
in the way of their classroom 
learning. But we want to do 
positive things that make the 
positive things that make 
students better learners by 
understanding themselves 

and developing new learning 
skills. There are other articles 
in this issue which describe 
some of the programs that 
contribute to that end. 

As Dean for Student 
Affairs I try to pick the best 
people to head those pro- 
grams, and to enable them to 
get the job done. I also try to 
represent the needs and con- 
cerns of the students to the 
rest of the administration 
and the Board of Regents,

The Dean for Student

That's another way of 
saying that I have re-

"Pantomime is the true uni- 
versal tongue."-- Churchill 

But you have never seen 
pantomime like this. Yes, all 
five members have studied 
under Marcel Marceau, 
Decrous and many others. 
Yet they do not go around 
picking flowers and other 
such poetic things. No, they 
galavant on the stage, dress 
up in zany costumes, shout 
at you with just their gest- 
ures — mouths tightly shut. 
You see, they love Charles 
Chaplin, Buster Keaton and 
silent movies, biting social 
and political statements, and 
plain old comedy. 

And they are coming he« 
tomorrow night to the LU- 
Show time is 8:15 P-" 1 - 
sharp! You can get in ff& 
with yourC.L.C. ID. 

Do not expect anything 
conventional or over-rehears- 
ed though. They have been 
known to ad-lib for over five 
minutes with devestati"B 
comedic results. Thev have 

so large a repertoire of 
stunts, acts, and crazies; and 
such vitality and desire tor 
free spirited fun that they 
effervesce their dedication 
and wish to please until the 
audience, drenched after 90, 
minutes of tearful laughter, 
happy about life. 

Since their first perform- 
ance in March of 1974, the

RI5TUBEN IS GONE (from first page) 

in the quality of the faculty he has hired, in 
the efforts he has made to improve faculty sa- 
laries, and, in general, in his administration ot 
the academic standards of the college. He has 
also been a strong advocate of innovative edu- 
cational programming and, consequently, a ma- 
jor force behind the development of the inter- 
disciplinary major, the second-step nursing pro- 
gram, and the urban semester. This, 1 think, 
will be his legacy at CLC." 

Smith expressed what Ristuben meant to 
many of the faculty when he concluded, 
"Don't give up the dream! Don't give up your 
sense of mission! Don't give up your warm spi- 
rit! And don't give up on California Lutheran 
College. You are too much a part of this insti- 
tution, too much a part of us, and we are too 
much a part of you." 

Then enters Father Time 

by Paul Brousseau 

A few years ago, after two hours had elaps- 
ed of a Milton final, Dr. Murley walked into 
the classroom wearing a white robe and holding 
a staff, enunciated a Milton quotation suitable 
for his costume of Father Time, then left the 
room without another word. Students broke 
up, then returned to their essays, refreshed. 
After a dinner break many again returned, the 
last two finishing up some eight hours after the 
test was begun. In this can be seen the respect 
and dedication Dr. Murley instills through his 

Voted Professor of the Year by students in 
1970 and again in 1975, Murley is also highly 
regarded by the faculty as well as the admini- 

Now he has been asked by President Mark 
Mathews to be Dean of the College over an in- 


terim period covering a year while a search 
team looks for a replacement for Dean Ristu- 
ben. Already this summer he has worked dili- 
gently with the science departments in formu- 
lation of academic structures for the future. 
This to facilitate the growth plans of the col- 
lege in respect to a new library and science 
building soon to be forthcoming. He will talk 
with other departments this Fall. 

With the accreditation self-study report 
completed, a seven hundred page document, 
Murley feels a long-range academic plan can 
now be adequately formulated. He hopes to 

The new prophet 

by Pastor Swanson 

I sometimes ask myself, 
"What's a nice college like this 
doing without a chapel? It's a 
natural question. How can I be 
the chaplain of a college with- 
out a chapel to chaplain? How 
can a college be a college of 
the church without a church? 
I mean a "real church" with 
soft pews, stained glass win- 
dows, an altar that stays in 
one place, four walls, and a 
steeple. . .open the doors and 
see all the people (at least 
twice a week). 

Here, I am a pastor in the 
line of Abraham, Moses, Da- 
vid, Isaiah, Jesus, Augustine, 
Martin Luther, and Martin Lu- 
ther King, Jr., and no church 
building. How strange, dis- 
graceful, incomplete!? 

Wait a minute. I better run 
that by again. Abraham was a 
nomad. Moses was addressed 
by God from a burning bush 
in the desert. David finally got 
Jerusalem and it immediately 
fell apart. Isaiah wound up an 
exile. Jesus' most permanent 
place was a cross, outside the 
city wall. Augustine was an 
African trying to make Rome, 
his city. Martin Luther had to 
post his news on the outside 
of the church's doors and the 
structure crumbled. Martin 
Luther King, Jr. started from 
the back of the bus and ended 
in the front of a garbage work- 
ers' strike. 

What does this say to a 
Chaplain without a chapel? Se- 
veral things. 

1) Put the burning bush, 
the cross, the creation, the spi- 
rit, air, water, heat, and grapes 
dancing and singing before the 
community when it worships. 

2) Make sure the cross 
leaves the place of worship 
when the people do and that 
it is seen in all kinds of places 
around campus. Let it be a re- 
minder that we live in the 
cross and that it touches all we 

3) Make the New Earth a 
welcoming place for all kinds 
of people. Let it be a place of 

have a first draft ready sometime in January. 
President Mathews describes Murley as, "Well 
liked by both the faculty and the athletic de- 
partment, and recognized as a scholar of many 
capabilities." He adds that with Murley at the 
helm of the academic plan, "I've seen more 



progress this summer than I would have believ- 
ed possible." 

Pipe in mouth. Dean Murley says, "Of 
course, my worst trouble has been convincing 
the administration that a messy desk doesn't 
mean there's a messy mind behind it." 

The Accreditation people, here during Ori- 
entation Week, will be back in November to 
visit classes, talk with faculty members, and 
hold meetings with students. Murley is in the 
process of finding out just how much informa- 
tion of the accreditation self-study report he 
can release to the students. He stresses it is not 
a question of secrecy. The problem arises in 
delineating between what can be construed as a 
publicity use of the information rather than 
the desired use solely for self-enlightenment 
within the college. He feels the students 
should have the information available to them 
before November, unless the accreditation peo- 
ple would prefer to talk with students who 
have an unaffected point of view in respect, to 

the academic qualities of the college. 

Dean Murley speaks of the accreditation 
self-study report as designed in a style most ap- 
propriate to assert the quality of this institu- 
tion, yet also show what and how to improve. 

In reference to the new athletic policy, Mur- 
ley feels it is a strong, vastly improved docu- 
ment compared to the old one, something the 
athletic department has been looking for. 

But argues, "Like any such document, it is 
a series of compromises, but the overall im- 
provement is significant. It will increase the 
potential of avoiding problems which have ex- 
isted." And he feels it benefits the athlete, 
setting down guidelines and procedures for eli- 

Before Coach Shoup and President Mathews 
went to Kansas City to appeal an all but fi- 
nal probation for all sports, placed on the col- 
lege by the NAIA, Murley affixed his signature 
to it along with Dr. David Johnson, Don Green, 
Mathews and Shoup. Shortly afterward the 
NAIA lifted the forthcoming stringent restric- 
tions and put the college on a one year 



The policy has yet to be approved by the fa- 
culty, but Murley thinks, "Although not a per- 
fect document, the basic structure and philo- 
sophy is there, the fine points can be worked 
out-" After it goes through a committee and 
through rhe rnevrTable changes, he thinks the 
faculty will approve it, perhaps in the Spring.

Dean Murley has found one benefit of his

is he can beg off the meetings he would rather

He will be teaching only English Literature 
in the Fall, he had to drop out of the Humanit- 
ies Tutorial program this year for lack of time. 

Among his summer activities, he spent two 
hours a day one week studying Shakespeare 
with 16 highschool students, ranging from 8th 
to 12th grade. The class took place in his 
home, his wife, Terry collaborated on the re- 
search and one son took part. He also headed a 
seminar along with Dr. Swensen and Dr. John- 
son called, "Toward Excellence in Teaching", 
designed for the college teacher. He looks for- 
ward to returning to the college level this Fall. 

He says at home. "We built a library loft in 
our townhouse." After carpenters put up the 
floor and stairs the rest of the family became 
carpenters, finishing, staining, shelving. Al- 
though his wife is a librarian, so far the newly 
placed books are only divided by centuries. 

Respectfully, he says, "It's nice to have, the 
Milton Quarterly lying around in the Dean's 
Office." He likes his new responsibilities, it's 
mind-expanding and a nice interlude, but he 
wouldn't like it long if he couldn't teach.

"What's there to do 3- 
round here anyway?" 

Each year activities 3* 
planned for the year and at- 
tempts are made to insure 3 
variety of events ranging 
from dances and ice cream 
eating contests to concerts 
and lectures. This year is n° 
exception, the Bam and US 
tramurals are set to go. 
several dances are planned, 
and the L.A. Mime Company 
is scheduled to perforin on 
the first Friday after your ar- 
rival. There should be events 
and activities that will please 
every interest. 

Just a glance over the ac- 
tivities upcoming in the first 
week of school reveals many 
opportunities for both stu- 
dents and faculty. You'll 
find them in the calender be- 

The extent to which you 
become involved and parti- 
cipate in these activities is 
your choice. These events of- 
fer all of us an opportunity 
to expand our minds, to a- 
chieve new cultural aware- 
nesses, to become more inte- 
grated into the college com- 
munity, to relax, and to re- 
create. The richness of your 
college experience is directly 
related to your participation 
in the life of the institution. 

I encourage you to strive 
for a successful year in the 
classroom and an expanding 
year among the extracurricu- 
ar activities. Hopefully the 
year will bring satisfaction 
and some just plain fun. 

You may 
well need to tackle some of 
the current issues in per- 
sonal development and hope- 
fully every opportunity will 

be provided for you to do so. 
Dorm living groups, growth 
groups, support and of 
course counseling services are 
ready to aid in self-discovery. 
A rather unconventional 
topic, has possibili- 

ties for helping all of us to 
become more self-assured, 
positive in our actions, calm 
in decision making and, yes- 
even WISE. Lasl spring I was 
introduced to my inner ad- 
visor (IA) at a workshop on 
counseling techniques. The 
IA can be likened to the 
Super Ego (Freud) or the 
parent part of your personal- 
ity (Berne) but does much 
more than act as a voice of 
your conscience. The IA 
doesn't leave you without 
the enjoyment of pleasure or 

fun, but rather directs and 
advises you to do what you 
REALLY want to do. So 
often we get confused with 
what others want us to do or 
want for us; our parents and 
friends have very big ex- 
pectations for us! If we re- 
peatedly rebuff the advice of 
our IA, it will simply stop 

giving it. We will then begin 
to live our lives for someone 
else, afraid to change because 
"that's just the way I am". 
(Does that sound like you?) 

Getting in touch with 
your .personal objectives, sift- 
ing through all the excuses 
why you're here and not 
there or with X and not Y is 
an easy task. Trust in your 
intuition is not taught in our 
schools and maybe it should 
be. Learning how to get in 
touch with your IA is a dif- 
ficult thing to measure, but 
the reward for listening to its 
advice provides you with 
advantage of acting with con- 
fidence and certainty. It puts 
YOU in control. You have 
the right to make mistakes or 
act illogically. And you don't 
have to offer excuses or 
reasons for justifying your

Coed dorms featured this year 

Small group experiences 
which we call growth groups 
will continue to be offered 
this school year. Some of 
the topics covered last year 
included values clarification, 
building good relationships, 
assertion training, career/life 
planning, and decision-making. 
This year we hope to do these 
and more, and we welcome 
your comments and suggesti- 
ons as to topics which you see 
as important and relevant; 'different 

The small group experience 
can be very valuable and me- 
morable personally as well as 
an opportunity for learning.

As we once again em- 
bark upon a new academic 
year there will be three areas 
m residence life that shall be 
making history at CLC. At 
'he onset of each year some- 
thing significant happens, the 
students become aquainted 
with the residence life staff 
and vice-versa. Also two very 
prominent changes will oc- 
cur with the coed confi- 
guration of the dormitories 
and the experimental nature 
of McAfee which will be in- 
volved in group determina- 
tion of hours. 

The residence life staff 
consists of approximately 
twenty Resident Advisors, 
five Head Residents, the Re- 
sidence Counselor, Frank 
Montana; and the Director 
for Resident Life. Melinda 

Mike Bartosch a CLC so- 
ciology graduate will be 
returning to Mt, Clef. He's 

wife, Cindy, and their son, 
Jason. Owen is preparing for 
a career in medicine. Assisting 
him in the 76 women, 56 
men hall are Mark Faerber 
(Oceanside) Renee Oberloh 
(Riverside), and Alice Paul- 
son (Tucson). Kramer Court 
is also under Owen's super- 
vision and Mark Cattau (Den- 
ver) will be the R.A. of that 

Frank Montana will be 
welcomed back to McAfee 
this year. Frank serves in a 
dual capacity: that of Head 
Resident and Residence 
Counselor. His counseling of- 
fice is located in the Stu- 
dent Affairs complex. 

McAfee students will have 
Sue Engbaum (Santa Ana),

By Bill Moore 

Some of you may be won- 
dering just what does "ca- 
reer planning" mean? Even if 
you're not, I'll explain it 
now. When I speak of career 
planning, I am not speaking 
of "lifespace" planning. To 
me, career implies two as- 
pects of one's life: 1) a sense 
of self-fulfillment and, 2) 
leisure which provides you 
pleasure or fun. The idea 
then, is to focus on one's 
life as a whole and see how 
it can be filled with work, 
vocation, and leisure. 

The first step in planning 
your career or your life is 
deciding who's in control. If 
you say you'll take any oc- 
cupation that's available, you 
may have a good chance of 
getting a job, but you aren't 
in control; you're letting the 
jobs themselves dictate your 
actions. Our basic premise is 
that the individual should be 
in control, make the deci- 
sion, and should start with 
the attitude that you can do 
just about anything until you 
decide it's not possible. 
Given that orientation, then, 
it follows that the process be- 
gins with finding out what 
you enjoy doing; what abilit- 
ies or skills you have and 
what to develop, and perhaps 
most importantly, what 
things you value most highly, 
both in life and in a work set- 
ting—independence, flexibili- 
ty, creativity, helping others, 
competition, whatever. In 
trying to assess these things 
for yourself, keep in mind 
that you don't need to make 
a career out of everything 
you can do or want to do, 
you can fill some needs in 
other ways outside of paid 

employment. Moreover, 

your leisure needs can be 
planned for just as your work 
or vocation needs are plan- 
ned. Rememher that you 
need to set goals for yourself, 
and that your goals will 
be/should be closely related 
to your values in life. 

After examining your 
own background it is usually 
a good idea to spend time 
gathering information about 
occupational possibilities— 
not so much in the sense of 
"what's a good field to get 
into now? What's a no-risk 
career?" but rather just 
broadening your horizons on 
the wide range of available 
occupations. This informa- 
tion gathering process ranges 
from reading about different 
careers, listening to tapes de- 
scribing various fields, talk- 
ing to your professors or pro- 
fessionals in the community, 
observing what they do on a 
day-to-day basis, and if pos- 
sible getting first-hand volun- 
teer or work experience. 

This information-gather- 
ing process leads into a third 
area, that of decision making. 
You need information to 
make decisions, and essential- 
ly the career planning process 
means making decisions, and 
very important ones at that. 
More specifically, you need 
to be able to not only gather 
information but also to eval- 
uate its usefulness and accur- 
acy. However, one very sel- 
dom, if ever, has complete in- 
formation, thus your emo- 
tions and feelings-your sub- 
jective appraisals, of situa- 
tions-play a role as well, and 
one needs to be aware of the 
role. One also needs to be a- 
ware of the risk taking stra- 
tegies involved in making de- 

cisions. This is discussed in 
more detail in our "Decision 
Making" handout. Other a- 
vailable handouts include: a 
small packet of exercises aim- 
ed at increasing your aware- 
ness in the areas of skills and 
values, materials on job hunt 
ing and interviewing, resume 
writing and so on. I'm here 
to talk to anyone about ca- 
reers, choosing a major, tak- 
ing an interest test or what- 
ever. Just drop by the stu- 
dent center in the commons, 
Monday through Friday 9 to 

To summarize, I'd like to 
leave you with nine basic 
thoughts about career plan- 
ning: (1) You are the best 
judge of yourself. No test, 
counselor, teacher, parent, 
etc. can tell you what you 
SHOULD do. (2) Your career 
decision reflects who you are 
as a whole person. (3) There 
is no one right job for each 
person. You have multi-po- 
tential. (4) Fantasy is good 
for you. Consider creatively 
combining your particular set 
of values and skills into ca- 
reer possibilities. (5) Most 
people do not proceed in a 
straight line path toward 
their ultimate career pos- 
sibilities. (6) Career planning 
is not irreversible. (7) Over 
a period of time, you can 
create your own career. (8) 
Most jobs can be accomplish- 
ed in a variety of ways. (9) 
There is not a particular set 
of responsibilities for each 
occu p ation. __^

Football begins 
a new season... 

by Brad Reed 

As Saturday morning, August 27th, broke clear and crisp, 
109 bodies filed into the Gym at 6:30a.m. for the first regular 
practice of the California Lutheran College (henceforth the 
"Lu") football team. Yes that first day that some had looked 
forward to and some had been dreading all summer was upon 
them and the Lu's annual three-a-day schedule had begun. In 
the next 8 days these players would see 22 practices, 8 meet- 
ings and have football drilled into their heads by one of the 
finest coaching staffs around. 

Sure it's no easy task, but the schedule at the 
Lu features such highlights as the Dog Patch Olympics (soccer, 
volleyball, softball, and basketball), a week-long decathlon and 
the infamous Mt. Clef Flyer to change the pace a little. (Ask 
Corky Gillis about his pace on the Flyer). 

Toward the end of this H — L Week, as it is commonly 
called, they get a pretty good idea of what kind of football 
is to be played by the Kingsmen (that's the name, Freshrr 
this year. And the feeling is don't forget your student body 
card and get out to the games early because you won't want to 
miss a single play. 

The Kingsmen are led by John Kindred, a quarterback who 
solidified last year and. seems to be in even better form. The 
receiving corps is led by senior Harry Hedricks whose acrobatic 
catches and clutch plays will make him a favorite player of the 

The ground game centers around Captain Al Staie, (5'-9", 
209lbs.) last year's leading rusher, and Terry Holden.both pu- 
nishing runners whom the Kingsmen will be depending on. 

The line is headed by J.C. Benedict (6'-l", 205) a fine cen- 
ter with tnree years ot varsity experience. 

On the defensive side of the ball, this year's team looks 
strong. Opposing teams will have lots of trouble running up a- 
gainst the likes of Defensive Captain Dave Stanley (6'-3", 
225), returning starter Mark Miller (6'-5", 200} and newcomer 
Nate Garner. 

The linebackers are solid and the defensive backfield of 
Eddie Gee, Don Gudmundson and Steve Bogan work well 
together and provide excellent defense against the pass. 

Add last year's leading scorer Brad Hoffman, field goal art- 
ist, to the scene and this year's Purple and Gold are ready to

...with some 
old faces 

by Paul Brousseau 

The situation appeared 
grave. Summer had barely be- 
gun and the NAIA had just 
placed the entire athletic pro- 
gram on probation due to 
self reported infractions in- 
volving three sports and eli- 
gibility. Left with only a few 
weeks to appeal, most colleg- 
es would have been helpless 
to avoid disaster. The restric- 
tions would have applied 
through this academic year. 

The thrill of the ultimate 
success in competition would 
have been missing without 
postseason play, honors, ra- 
tings. The highschool athlete 
and junior college transfer 
would go elsewhere. 

Dependent on the 
athlete, the enrollment 
would drop and the plans for 
a library and science build- 
ing would die as unfulfilled 
dreams for lack of funds or 
scholars to fill them. 

Aware of this, and assum- 
ing the athletic is brother to 
the academic, the college two 
years ago set to work on a 
new athletic policy to replace 
the outdated, ill-used one. 
Composed through the effort 
of students, faculty, admini- 
strators, and outside consul- 
tants, the document was 
completed last May. It was 
directly tested. 

President Mathews and 

Coach Shoup went to Kansas 
City, new policy in hand, and 
made a presentation to the 
NAIA appeals board, detail- 
ing the total college involve- 
ment in creating the new '. 
policy. The following week 
the probation order was re- 

The policy sets down a 
time schedule and responsibi- 
lities for eligibility. The ath- 
letic department structure 
and relationship to the I 
Dean's Office is also spelled .; 
out. As recommended by Dr. - 
David Olson, a consultant" 
from PLU, the P.E. depart-" 
ment head and athletic dir- • 
ector post were combined. 
Coach Green occupies the 
new position, former A.D., 
Robert Shoup, is now with 
Development. Olson also 
proposed that the position be 
held by an individual with an. 
academic Ph.D. and not ; 
coach a major sport on cam- 

Still to be approved by . 
the faculty, Shoup believes " 
the new policy is much clear- 
er than the previous one. He 
feels that former Dean Ris- 
tuben was supportive, and 
knows Dean Murley is as • 
well. Murley expects the fa- I 
culty will approve the policy, 
with minor changes, before . 
the year's end. 






by Brad Reed 

"A few changes have been 
made and we're going to have 
a very fine program this 
year," says Don Green, new 
ly appointed director ol 
men's athletics here at Cal 

Green, who spent 23 
years as A.D. at Pomona 
Highschool, has played an in 
strumental part in the Athle- 
tic Department since he came 
to us in 1970. As head t,rack 
coach he has put together an 
outstanding record, one that 
includes a present string of 
71 dual meets without a de- 
feat and last year a 14th 
place finish in the NAIA Na- 
tionals, highest ever by the 
Cal Lu tracksters. 

He was an assistant coach 
on the 71 National Champi- 
onship football team and has 

coached the offensive harks, 
been defensive coordinator in 
recent years and is the new 
defensive back coach. 

Coach Green is also the 
coordinator of the cross- 
country program and head 

As if sports weren't e- 
nough to fill his schedule he 
has been a full-time profes- 
sor everv vear except one, in 
'71, when he was Director of 
Student Activities. 

One of the major changes 
to be seen this year is 
the addition of Nancy Trego 
to the P.E. staff. She will be 
the women's volleyball and 
basketball coach as well as a 
full-time teacher. In the past 
the coaches positions have 
been filled by part-time per- 

Women's sports 

by Paul Brousseau 

On the desk is a foot-high 
stack of old, dusty records 
probably made around 1950. 
Nancy Trego handles each 
brittle disc with care as she 
peruses every label. As Benny 
Goodman, seemingly ancient 
popular classics, and other 
half familiar names of songs 
and composers come into 
view, she exclaims at all the 
music. Then she turns to the 
interviewer, smiles brightly 
and begins answering the 
questions he must ask her. 

Ably experienced to 
coach both volleyball and 
basketball, Miss Trego is the 
new women's coach for these 
two sports. Her obvious vital- 
ity and love of sports will 
add a new dimension to the 
women's athletic program 
and hasten it toward a fulfill- 
ing and rewarding future. 

Organizing herself in her 
newly constructed office on 

program takes step forward 

the women's side of the 
gymnasium complex, Miss 
Trego says she looks forward 
to being busy. And the vet- 
erans she has met from last 
year's teams seem "enthus- 
iastic and ready to go". But 
she adds, "I will be making 
some adjustments, I came 
from a 30,000 person univer- 
sity. Teaching and coaching 
will be challenging, which is 
good." She continued, "I 
think I will 'enjoy the close- 
ness of a small college en- 
vironment, it will be possible 
to get more involved in 
things and not just your own 

Miss Trego played volley- 
ball at Long Beach State 
from 1969 to 1971, her team 
placing fourth in the first 
AIAW Nationals in 1970. 

Recently, she has spent 
the last five years coaching 
at the University of Arizona, 
heading the volleyball team 

the 1972 and 1973 seasons 
and the basketball team from 
1975 through 1977. 

Academically, Miss Trego 
received a B.A. from CSULB 
and an M.S. from the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin, La 
Crosse, both degrees in Phys- 
ical Education. She is 29 
years old. 

Miss Trego is an enthus- 
iastic racquetball player 
loves golf, and likes to play 
the guitar. She makes rugs 
does leatherwork, and delves 
into other arts and crafts 
She gets into her dancing! 
She likes to try things out, in 
short: she is a doer. 

She has been to Europe 
but dearly wishes to return 
She likes to travel when she 
has the means and the time. 
"I haven't done enough". No 
matter how long she stays 
Miss Trego will be of tre- 
mendous help to the wo- 
men's athletic program. 

tennis pro, Grant Smith 
will be revamping the tennis 
program. He will teach all 
classes and organize an intra- 
murals tournament as well as 
being head coach. 

In another area of our 
growing physical education 
department a scuba diving 
class will be held under the 
supervision of Don Aldrtdge, 
the head of the Southern Ca- 
lifornia Scuba Diving School 
in Thousand Oaks. Classes 
will be held at the CLC pool, 
Malibu, and the Channel Is- 

"We're very pleased to 
have a man with Don's ex- 
perience and knowledge help- 
ing our staff this year," states 
Coach Green. 

In the classroom Dr. To- 
mec, one of the leading or- 
thopedic surgeons in the na- 
tion, will teach the Preven- 
tion and Care of Athletic In- 
jury class, filling in the post 
vacated by Don Garrison 
who moved into administra- 
tive work this Fall. 

Jim Frazier will be con- 
tinuing his efforts to bolster 
equestrian riding which came 
on strong last year. 

To finish put a well- 
rounded curriculum, the 
dance classes will see all new 
instructors with Miss Trego 
and Robert Shoup (head 
footbal coach) taking the ba- 
sic dance classes and Sheila 
Matsuda heading the modern 
dance classes. 

Coach Green believes that 
with the program growing as 
jt is we are furthering our 
goal of having sports blend 
with the total process of edu- 
cation here at the Lu. He also 
praised the administration 
for their support and hopes 
continued effort in this area 
will lead to further develop-

Cross country off 
and running 

by Brad Reed 

Coach Don Green is hap- 
py to announce the addition 
of at least seven runners to 
the remains of last year's 
squad and is anxiously a- 
waiting the start of the sea- 
son. The first addition is Ed- 
die Ramirez from Oxnard 
who was last year's Junior 
College state 5,000 meters 
champion. Two other run- 
ners with fine credentials are 
Dave Helgeson and Dan Da- 
vies of Grossmont, the top 
cross-country team in the 
state. Also from Grossmont 
(thank you, Grossmont!) is 
Demme Wilson who ran first 
leg on the mile relay team 

which was first in the state. 

Two new freshmen run- 
ners are Don Wilson and An- 
dy Black who was league 
champion last year. 

Heading up this new cast 
returning from last year's 
squad will be two lettermen 
Tom King and Ray Salci- 
do. Let's eagerly watch what 
very well could be the fi- 
nest team ever at CLC. 

Girl's cross-country? Yes, 
that's right! Starting with 
coach Frank Montana and 
adding two girl runners ex- 
pected here it looks like Ju- 
lie Wulff (school record hol- 
der in the 1,500 meter and 
2 mile) will have someone to 
run with and something to 
run for this Fall instead of 
waiting for girl's track to roll

CLC financial 
deficit revealed 

by Paul Brousseau 

Last Saturday, at a special meeting of the Board of Re- 
gents, Vice-President of Business-Finance, Dean Buchanan re- 
vealed that the College last year operated at a deficit of 
$182,000. This is the first time the College has operated in 
the red since President Mark Mathews took office in the 

gear's" $907^00. ""' Th ' "' SUrplUS ° Ver ' he '*" *«" 

On Sunday, ASCLC President Craig Kinzer announced the 
deficit to the Student Senate. He also listed that CLC's net 
worth rose to $6,725,000, up about $300,000 due to assets 
received as grants or gifts for the construction of the proposed 
Learning Resource Center. 

Interviewed Monday in his office, Dean Buchanan showed 
U u' n ?,5' m ?. le line 'S''aph charts, what led to the deficit. Since 
the 71-72 year the percent of tuition revenue compared to 
total revenues has remained fairly constant as has room and 
board. Total unrestricted gifts have increased slightly per 
capita. It is in the fixed costs where the problem lies For 
example insurance: five years ago a general insurance for the 
College of $ i million could be purchased at a cost of approxi- 
$40000 Pr " ent covera S e of « million runs 

The total revenues received by the College increased 3% 
test year, but added expenditures of 9% caused the deficit 
Buchanan explained that, "If it (a yearly deficit) continues 
we could get in trouble." 

As a direct result of the deficit the Regents voted unani- 
mously to increase tuition fees by $300.00. Kinzer voted in 
favor of the increase because he felt he would, "rather see the 
College survive than keep operating at a deficit." Compared 
with other private institutions, CLC's tuition will still be below 
the median next year. But it will be slightly higher than some 
more closely related schools; for instance Westmont providing 
it doesn't raise its tuition. The ceiling for State Scholarship 
holders is scheduled to reach $3,200 next year, from $2,700

signed a contract with Collegiate Products Inc (CPI). The five 
year agreement can be cancelled on any anniversary of the 
signing date provided sixty days notice is given. This allows 
future presidents the choice of review. 

The fourth clause of the agreement states that during the 
term of the contract the ASCLC will "enter into no other a- 
greements for refrigerator rentals" and "will do all that is rea- 
sonably within its power to support exclusive rental rights of 

Early in the year a separate refrigerator rental company, 
Polar Leasing, came to solicit on campus unaware the ASCLC 
was under an exclusive rights contract with CPI. A student re- 
presentative for Polar Leasing was allowed to sit in the Cafeter- 
ia and take sign-ups until the College administration was ap- 
praised of the situation and the student was asked to leave. 
The decision was in deference to Kinzer's signature as presi- 
dent of the student body and Regent of the College. 

Activities Director, Don Hossler was directed by Dean Bu- 
chanan's office to move Polar Leasing out of the Cafeteria 
and off campus. After an afternoon of phone calls and per- 
sonal visitors concerning the one issue of exclusive rights, 
Hossler concluded that, "student government is supposed to 
be the spokesman of the students. . .after being hassled by 
both Craig (Kinzer) and Creighton (Van Horn, CPI student re- 
presentative), I decided the most expedient thing to do was 
move them (Polar Leasing) off." 

Polar Leasing offered their refrigerator for $40.00 per year 
while CPI charges $52.00 plus tax. Students last year paid ap- 
proximately $75.00 through Sparklett's. The CPI unit has 
about 15% more storage space than Polar Leasing's and em- 
ploys a smaller motor. In terms of energy consumption, Po- 
lar Leasing claims its larger motor is more efficient, turning 
on less often and shutting off more quickly. Kinzer said the 
CPI unit uses slightly less (

Urban Semester: 

During the second semes- 
ter of this academic year, 
California Lutheran College 
will be offering a new pro- 
gram, the Urban Semester. 
Students who enroll in the 
program will study, explore, 
work, and live in the city of 
Los Angeles, close to its 
many cultural centers. 

The Urban Semester con- 
sists of 14-16 credits and is 
open to students with majors 
in any field. The semester 
program itself is highly adap- 
table to meet the interests 
and desires of each indi- 
vidual student. 

The semester has four 
credit-earning areas. The first 
is the core course which of- 
fers "an interdisciplinary o- 
verview of urban institutions, 
issues, and processes of social 
change which includes inter- 
action with civic leaders, 
citizen groups, and others 
actively involved in urban af- 

The seminar gives a clo- 
ser look at the individual 
parts of urban life, such as 
' terature, politics, and cri- 
minal justice. The seminars 
are usually at night once 
or twice a week. 

The field placement offers 
"insights and contacts for ca- 
reer planning through on-the-

Every full time student at 
California Lutheran College 
pays a $100 student fee to 
the ASCLC budget, student 
government. The ASCLC stu- 
dent officers allocated the 
budget of 1977-78 among 
the several departments of 
the government in May, 
1977, based on a full time es- 
timated enrollment of one 
thousand students or 
$100,000. This year there are 
1,076 full time students. 

Mandatory divisions ac-

New directions for academics 

by Dean Murley 

The academic programs at 
the College have taken or a 
number of newer directions 
for CLC this year. The self- 
study which had involved the 
College during 1976-77 has 
been drawn together as an 
Accreditation Report. It 
now becomes the basis for 
two primary concerns for 
1977-78. First, it becomes a 
part of the accreditation eva- 
luations conducted by the 
Western Association of 
Schools and Colleges. Se- 
cond, it is the base for a- 
cademic planning as CLC 
continues to build academic 
programs to best advance the 
mission of the College. With 
our identity as a liberal arts 
college firmly established, we 
are reaching outward to aug- 
ment our drive for increas- 
ing excellence in education 
and for increasing involve- 
ment in lifelong learning. It 
is an exciting year for the a- 
cademic community, one 
which will build upon many 
past and present evaluations 
towards greater concerns for 
the future. 

A number of early results 
from planning should be evi- 
dent for those of us who are 
continuing at the College. 
The departments of mathem- 
atics and physics, for in- 
stance, are now joining in an 
effort to build more oppor- 
tunities for students to gain 
full, disciplined studies of 
computers and computation- 
al mathematics. While stu- 

dents can continue to major 
in mathematics or physics. 
the merger of the depart- 
ments will open the fields 
related to computers in ways 
that were more difficult un- 
der the old structure. 

A program designed for 
faculty may also be visible 
to students as one aspect of 
faculty development will be 
addressed this year through a 
joint program of the College 
Pastor and the Religion De- 
partment. A year-long em- 
phasis on the theological im- 
pacts upon academic disci- 
plines will be the thrust of 
the program. It will bring 
theologians into dialogue 
with other professors. 

Another new program 
centers in the Department of 
Nursing which now makes it 
possible for Registered Nur- 
ses to pursue bachelors de- 
grees at CLC. The depart- 
ment furthers CLC's involve- 
ment in the health fields and 
adds a new component to the 
Division of Natural Sciences. 
Ms. Beryl Scoles who chairs 
the department is currently 
planning a full curriculum for 
nurses and plans to add two 
additional faculty for the 
spring semester. Ms. Scoles, 
formerly on the faculty of 
the School of Nursing at 
UCLA, is completing her 
doctoral studies at UCLA 
this year. 

Perhaps one of the most 
visible new programs is the 
Learning Resources course

j.C. Benedict's car became very hot on Sept. 12 when an e-

The fire was put out quickly and the engine and body can be

which would be most critical 
for the Center to function 
immediately, the total com- 
plex to be completed in the 
future. Because the cost dif- 
ference between the two 
plans was negligable, such an 
involved facility being so in- 
ter-related, the Regents asked 
the architect to come up 
with a third plan based on 
the first, and try to reduce 
costs wherever possible. The 
reasoning used, as explained 
by Buchanan, cited that in 
the event not enough money 
for the first plan could not 
be accumulated, the project 
could still move ahead, be- 
cause it could be done for 
less. Total cost for construc- 
tion is estimated at 

Buchanan pointed out 
that new operating expenses 
of $700,000 will occur when 
the Resource Center is com- 
plete; for janitorial, staff, 
maintenance, and other relat- 
ed costs. Predominately a li- 
brary, the Resource Center 
will, according to Buchanan 
be a non-income producing 
building, so already next 
year, should the Regents de- 
cide to start construction this 
fall, additional expenditures 
of $100,000 will arise. This 
poses a problem for next 
year's budget. 

The tuition increase will 
help to counter-act the added 
expense, but Buchanan says, 
"We are not operating at an 
economical level. . .the an- 
swer lies in increased enroll- 
ment." Yet the dorms are 
jammed this year, Buchanan 
acknowledges this saying, 
"We are working on viable 
means of obtaining addition- 
al housing." One possibility 
is to have an investor build 
apartments on campus at no 

capital expenditure to the 
College and to rent to stu- 
dents while the College main- 
tains a lease. The problem 
is the low rent students pre- 
sently pay. The College is 
not in a position to borrow 
to build new dorms because 
of the liability of the pro- 
posed Learning Resource 

Next Sunday, Dean Buch- 
anan will give a presenta- 
tion of the College budget to 
the Senate, and will answer 
any student questions. The 
meeting begins at 6:45p.m. 
in the Student Union Build- 

for freshmen. Under the di 
rection of Professor Kolitsky 
faculty who serve as Fresh' 
men Advisors have worked 
during the summer to p re 
pare a full semester course 
which is intended to help S t u . 
dents see the scope of li- 
beral arts, the options f 0r 
majors, and the resources of 
the College. 

An Urban Semester pro . 
gram has developed from the 
interim into a regular semes- 
ter and will an option f or 
students this spring. Charles 
Garofalo who has a Ph.D m 
American Studies f roni 
Emory University will oe 
joining the faculty in Janu- 
ary as the Director of the Ur- 
ban Semester. 

A major expansion in the 
quality of the women's athle- 
tic program has resulted from 
the addition of Nancy Trego 
to the Department of Physi- 
cal Education. Miss Treeo 
comes to CLC from the Uni- 
versity of Arizona where she 
had been both an instructor 
and a coach. Her M.S. de- 
gree is from the University of 
Wisconsin-La Crosse. 

The forensics programs at 
the College take on a differ- 
ent identity as Beverly Kelley 
has assumed direction of for- 
ensics as part of her role in 
the Department of Speech 
and Drama. Professor Kelley 
has just completed her Ph.D. 
at UCLA and has most re- 
cently been an instructor at 
California State University,

All second semester fresh- 
men to seniors are eligible 
to enroll in this new lear- 
ning experience. Each stu- 
dent will be interviewed be- 
fore the semester begins so 
that interests and desires can 
be discussed. 

The Urban Semester is an 
outgrowth of the Urban In- 
terim, which is now in its 
third year of operation. The 
Urban Interim has basically 
the same type of program, 
but in a semester much more 
can be covered than in one 

More information along 
with a slide presentation 
will be presented in a few 
weeks. Anyone wanting 
more information concerning 
any aspect of the program

of the Urban Semester, Dr.

Two new instructors have 
joined the Economics and 
Management Department. 
Quenton Hanson who is a '

Northridge is teaching ac- 
counting; and Edward A. 
Schroeder who is working for 
his Ph.D. in Economics at

courses in economics. 

In the English Depart- 
ment, Dr. Gordon P. Cheese- 
wright, whose Ph.D. is from 
UCLA and who has been an 
Assistant Professor of English 
at the University of Ken- 
tucky, is assuming teaching 
roles both in English and in 
the Humanities Tutorial. 

Both the academic pro- 
grams and the faculty are 
strengthened by these chang- 
es from last year. They com- 
plement the quality of our 
continuing curriculum and 
faculty should orovide new 
perspectives for students. I 
hope the academic year will 
be as challenging for every- 
one at the College as I know 
it will be for me. I am con- 
fident that we have the com- 
ponents within the academ- 
ic community that will result 
in considerable intellectual 
ferment and significant learn- 
ing; continuing students and 
new students, continuing fa- 
culty and new faculty, con- 
tinuing programs and new 
programs, all enriching the 
basic purpose and mission of 
the College.

Out of the cocoon 


By Bill Moore 

"Metamorphosis" isn't 
exactly your everyday house- 
hold word, but it certainly 
sounds impressive, doesn't it? 
On top of that I think it is an 
apt expression of the goals of 
the program of structured 
groups offered by the Stu- 
dent Affairs staff this year. 
As Webster's defines it, meta- 
morphosis maens "any mark- 
ed change, as in character", 
and I think thats what we 
would like to see— a marked 
growth in in ones relations 
with self and others. Cleverly 
enough, then, we call our 
small group experiences 
"growth groups", since thats 
what they're all about. 

Now, this does nol 
thai any of you out thi 
lacking in character c 
thing else; its just that 
lieve the college years 
time in which all aspects of 
personal development should 
be explored. The academic 
aspect is part of that focus, 
but it is by no means the 
whole story. What good is it 
to gain the whole world (i.e. 
a great career) and not .reach 
your potential in dealing 
with yourself and others? 
And what better time to pol- 
ish your interpersonal skills 
than while you're in college? 
The perfect atmosphere of 
learning, the easily accessible 
peers making the the tasks 
easier than they ever will be 
later on, professionals anx- 
ious to lead the groups and 
team and grow along with

you— all these factors make 
this time of your life THE 
time to develop as a WHOLE 
person. Not to mention the 
fact that after you graduate 
you would be paying money, 
often a lot of money , for the 
same experiences. Now I ask 
you— is it fiscally responsible 
to ignore these opportuni- 

I won't describe the 
groups being offered this 
year because it would take 
too much space; descriptions 
are available in the pub- 
licity flier distributed the 
week of September 19. I urge 
you to take a close look at 
that flier and see if there is 
anything in which you would 
want to participate. The 
groups which are set for the 
fall semester are the follow- 
ing; (1) personal growth/a- 
skills, (2) assertion training, 
(3) career/life planning, (4) 
friendship building, (5) relax- 
ation training, (6) eliminating 
self-defeating behaviors, and 
(7) clarifying personal values. 
If you have any questions 
about these groups, or any 
suggestions about areas you'd 
like to see covered, contact 
Bill Moore, Director of Ca- 
reer Planning and Placement, 
at 492-2411 extension 341, 
or Frank Montana, Residence 
Life Counselor, extension

amorphosis", but we do 
think its an exciting chal- 
lenge to try. 

You are cordially invited...

of the fall services is "God is a Verb", a vari- 
ation of John 1:1 (In the beginning was the 
Word and the Word was with God, and the 
Word was God. RSV). Pastor Leslie Brant, 
ALC clergyman and author of several con- 
temporary devotional books, will present 
"God is Fire by Night and Cloud by Day" 
next Wednesday. The service of September 14 
was highlighted by Pastor Swanson's rendition 
of Exodus 3, "God is a Burning Bush", ac- 
companied on the piano by Dr. Jack 
Ledbetter. Bob Moonie used a zombie ball to 
demonstrate how one tries to cover up God's 
working through one's life. Vicki Eagleson 
read the contemporary poem "We are Free". 
Dr. James Kallas, professor at CLC for the last 
sixteen years and noted author, spoke last 
week on "God is a Wounded Healer". He de- 
scribed how the prophet Ezekiel's own suf- 
fering at the death of his wife enabled the 
man to understand God's love and suffering 
for mankind. 

PRAYER MEETINGS are at the New 
Earth Friday mornings at 10:00. They are in- 
formal gatherings that follow the TAIZE 
COMMON PRAYER BOOK. Taize is a protes- 
tant community in Burgundy, France, found- 
ed in the 1940's by Roger Schutz. The Gospel 
for the coming Sunday service is previewed at 
the Taize meeting. 

The Nelson room is the scene for CON- 
TIONS, held Monday's at 10:00 a.m. Their 
fall emphasis is on the values and disciplines 
of college. Dr. Wallace Asper, chairman of the 
CLC religion Department for eleven years and 
interim pastor of the first Lutheran Church in 
Camarillo, will speak next Monday on "A 
Broad View of What Churches Expect From 
the.. College". He will elaborate 'in the "re- 
ciprocal function of the college and the 
church". Dr. Sigmar \. Schwarz, Assistant 
Professor in English presented his view of rel- 
igious experience last week. He asserted that 

various disciplines engender a lack of peace in 
the individual which propels him or her to 
come to terms with some spiritual searching. 
Dr. George Arbaugh, Professor of Philosophy, 
initiated the Conversations on September 12 
with "A Long View of Colleges by a Senior 
Mentor", and expressed the need for a person 
to conscious of the value of many disciplines. 
The Religious Activities and Service Com- 
mission, chaired by Marvie Jaynes, leads the

The OPEN EARTH is a new concept this 
year. "We still have the New Earth open be- 
tween 7:00 a.m. and 2:00 a.m. to allow any- 
one who wishes to come in", stated Pastor 
Swanson. A student can find a quiet place to 
meditate, someone to talk to, or counseling 
there. Assistants Vicki Eagleson (Worship), 
Stuart Korshavn (Communications), and Bob 
Mooney (Programs) are also there'at times. A 
lending library and media resources are avail- 
able as well. 

Everyone is invited to visit the NEW 
EARTH COLLECTIVE (A Christ centered 
social action group) ", states Linda Piera, its 
chairperson. It meets on Fridays between 
2:30 and 3:30 in the New Earth. Lary Gesh, 
CLC Alumnus involved in the Lutheran Stu- 
dent movement, guested the opening meeting. 

Eleven Koinonia groups meet students 
needs of small group sharing and fellowship. 
"Koinonia" is a New Testament term denot- 
ing "fellowship". One may sign up for a mini 
group in the New Earth. The mini groups are 
"Create a Chapel Service" with coordinators 
Vicki Eagleson and Jeff Nicholson; "Poetry of 
Faith" with Jack Ledbetter; "Men and Wo- 
men in the Church and Society" with Dan 
Jordan and Marcie Cleveland; "Singles 
Group" with Sheri Richards, Mike Bartosch, 
and Mary Stein; and "The Sermon on the 
Mount" with Tim Ledbetter and Mary Stein. 

The groups which meet for the semester 
and require the student to contact one of the 
coordinators for admittance already met last 
week. They are. "The Victorious Christian 
Life" with coordinator Jack Dustman; "The 
Couple Experience" with Cindy and Owen 
Stormo, Cathy and Bill Simmons; "A Study 
of Luke" with Gerry Swanson and Greg 
Nuefeld; "Both Sides Now — the Male and

From the looks of this 
dance, the Social Publicity 
Commissioner, Joel Gibson, 
certainly seems to be on the 
right track. His efforts last 
spring to determine the mus- 
ical tastes of the students and 
find out exactly what they 
wanted to hear proved fruit- 
ful with the band "Skyrock". 

The four piece band was 
composed of Mike McDonald 
on the lead guitar, Mike 
Anthony on keyboards and 
rythm guitar, Emitt Siniard 
playing bass, and Paul Still- 
man on drums. The band's 
repertoire ranged from an 
excellent Beatles medley to 
the Beach Boys (which act- 
ually sounded like them!) to 
the Eagles. "Skyrock" was 
able to do very well in three 
and even four part harm- 
onies and their use of the 
keyboards was a pleasure to 

CLC is a college of many 
diverse musical tastes and it 
is obvious that good bandsg 
with well rounded musical^ 
capabilities are possible to 
find with a little effort.

By Reggie Gee 

A few years ago, televis- 
ion introduced a show titled 
"Happy Days". Still doing 
well, the show depicts the 
lives of highschoolers grow- 
ing up in the 50's. Their drag 
races, blue jeans, and greased 
back hair styles, and of 
course their hangout; Arn- 
old's. Arnold's is for them a 
place where they can come 
and enjoy malts, ice cream, 
hot dogs, and burgers while 
at the same time enjoying the 
company of their peers, in- 
cluding the opposite sex 
without hassle or fear. Well, 
California Lutheran College 
doesn't have an Arnold's or 
an Arthur Fonzarelli but it 
does have "The Barn". 

Centrally located adjacent 
to the gym The Barn, like 
Arnold's, is for students to 
enjoy, grab a bite to eat, or 
just come and sit and visit. 

Managed by Lisa Everett, 
a student at CLC, The Barn 
offers much more to the stu- 
dents than a hang out or 
food and drink. 

Last week on Saturday 
night Steve Gillette, song 
writer of folk and rock mu- 
sic, entertained about sixty- 

five students with songs like 
"Back on the Street Again", 
"Corina, Corina", and a score 
of other selections he has 
composed for stars like Linda 
Ronstadt and Bob Dylan. 

After the show there was 
an ice cream social sponsored 
by the Associated Women 
Students which some 100 
people showed up for at one 
time or another. 

What's it all about? Simp- 
ly, The Barn is where its at, 
if you want it. Its within 
walking distance for those 
students who don't have ac- 
cess to a car can enjoy it's 
numerous attractions includ- 
ing ice cream in assorted 
flavors, hot chocolate, pizza, 
shakes, hamburgers, and 
many othre appetizers. 

So, if theres nothing to do 
or you're just looking for a 
place to go, accept Lisa's in 
vitation to, "come on down 
and enjoy good food, fus- 
ball, bumper pool, and fre- 
quent high-quality entertain- 
ment because The Barn is a 
student service which is very 
inexpensive and a great place 
to be!

this year reveals that CLC has 
become the home of no less 
than 28 Drama majors and

majors. These figures are 
vital to the quality of per-

Michele Sanford reigns ^" dspmtmUtmei uf 
;as Miss Oxnard 

By Jane Lee 

The Colonial House Banquet Room provided the setting for 
the Miss Oxnard Beauty Pageant. Anxious contestants between 
the ages of 18 and 25 highlighted the noon luncheon on Aug- 
ust 12. California Lutheran College liberal arts major Michele 
Sanford became the center of focus as she was crowned Miss 
Oxnard 1977. Three community businesspersons judged the 
girls in casual wear, swim suits, evening gowns and impromptu 
answers to given community related questions. 

"I'm a good representative from Oxnard", replied Michele 
when asked about her hopes for the Miss Ventura County 
crown. 'Tve lived in Oxnard for twelve years and I've watched 
it grow." Miss Sanford's impromptu question was, "If you 
could change one thing about Oxnard what would you 
change?" In her one minute answer period she revealed her 
concern for the crime problem in Oxnard and expressed a de- 
sire to work with the mayor on crime prevention. 

Winning beauty pageants seems to run in the Sanford fam- 
ily. Michele's mother Juanita held the Miss Gary, Indiana title. 
Her mother encouraged her to try for the position by telling 
her how much she would gain from the experience. 

"I've learned a lot about myself", exclaimed Michele in her 
energetic fashion. Being a college senior was an advantage be- 
cause it made her more qualified than the other girls in the 
area of education. "The most important thing is that women 
get a good education. The pa- 
■geant has opened many doors 
|for me. I've met many new 
people and I have been treat- 
ed very well." 

Being a beauty pageant 
contestant takes time but is 
not Sanford's only interest. 
She has been on pep squads 
for eight years and is current- 
ly a CLC songleader. Being 
interested in bi-Mngual educa- 
tion she would like to pur- 
sue a teaching career. 

The Woman's division of 
the Oxnard Chamber of 
Commerce sponsored her in 
the Miss Ventura County Pa- 
geant at 8 p.m. last Saturday 
at the Ventura Holiday Inn.

It is still early in the year, 
but even so, the people in the 
Music Department are al- 
ready tuning up for events to 
come. As of now, things are 
pretty quiet, except for 
Wednesday evenings. Every 
Wednesday, all the music 
students who are taking pri- 
vate lessons, perform some of 
the numbers they have been 
learning. This is not only fun 
to listen to but it gives the 
students experience at per-

there are many things plan-

Conejo Symphony when 
they perform the annual 
Young Peoples Concert. The 
Fall Concert for this year will 
feature the combined college 
choirs, and the Concert Orch- 
estra. Directed by Dr. Zim- 
merman, they will perform 
Mendelssohn's ELIJAH on 
November 12 and 13. These 
are only two of the many 
events planned for fall. Fur- 
ther information can be ob- 
tained in later issues or can 
be gotten from the music of-

Learning resource class 
a good thing ? 

By Bruce Osterhout * 

As most know, all freshmen this year 
are required to take Learning Resources. 
It is a one unit course and is designed to 
help freshmen with any questions or prob- 
lems that might develop in adjusting to col- 
lege life. It meets once a week, on Fridays, 
and helps the new students become intro- 
duced to the campus. 

Each Learning Resources class started 
out as faculty/advisee groups during the 
week of the orientation for freshmen. The 
faculty visitation night in which each group 
went to a different faculty member's house 
was excellent. 

Each group became a place where re- 
lative strangers became friends through 
talking about summer experiences and ca- 
reer goals. The groups were the initial con- 
tact with campus life, and they served their 
purpose well. 

By visiting the library and the Learn- 
ing Assistance Center, students were intro- 

duced to the many resources that this col- 
lege has to offer. Some of these resources 
might have been overlooked and wasted 
had it not been for the groups. 

The curriculum for each Learning 
Resources group is decided on by each fa- 
culty advisor. Just as professors are differ- 
ent from each other, some groups were 
different from each other. 

The only flaw visible in the orientation 
program, where the Learning Resources 
groups essentially got their starts, may have 
been the lack of a more detailed map. One 
that could show exactly where all the class- 
es and faculty offices are located. 

All in all, the Learnig Resources Pro- 
gram is an excellent means of getting new 
students aquainted with the school. With 
the hopes for a new Learning Resource 
Center, the program itself can't help but be 
a continuing success and an asset to this 


Liddy's Life in Jail 

hind prison walls, G. Gor- 
don Liddy is known among 
his fellow inmates as 
'Watergate Liddy." He has 
been the silent man of 
Watergate. His fellow con- 
spirators have written 
books and given lectures 
about their part in the 
nation's worst political 
scandal. But Liddy has 
remained mute. 

He is a strange, tena- 
cious man, with a 
'Groucho Marx" mustache 
and a stoic disposition. 
Once, he started out to gun 
me down. Fortunately, 
Watergate figure Jeb Ma- 
gruder headed him off be- 
fore he reached my office. 
Another time, Liddy 
sought some exotic poisons 
from a CIA doctor to use 
against me. I was for- 
tunate again. The doctor 
refused to give him the 

Incidents like these gave 
Liddy a reputation as 
Watergate's tough guy. 
But there's another, 
human story that should be 
told about him. 

Liddy received the long- 
est prison sentence of any 
of the Watergate gang. The 
sentence was unfair, but it 
didn't shake him. 

As his prison termed 
dragged on, he received 
word from home that his 
family was having a diffi- 
cult time. Without Liddy to 
pay the bills, the family 
couldn't make ends meet. 

Several months ago, they 
almost had their gas and 
telephone service shut off 
because of the unpaid bills. 
But Liddy's friends qui- 
etly came to the rescue. 
Donald Santarelli, a for- 
mer top Justice Dept. offi- 
cial, organized a fund-rais- 
ing effort to bail out the 
Liddy family. 

The grateful Liddy wrote 
Santarelli a warm, confi- 
dential letter which 
reveals the human side of 
"Watergate Liddy." 

"Fran tells me," Liddy 
wrote, "that when you vis- 
ited her earlier this month, 
she was within days of 
having both the gas and the 
phone shut off. Your very 
generous gift meant a very 
great deal to her and our 

1 don't forget things like 
that, and you can imagine 
how much it means to a 
man in prison when some- 
one helps his loved ones 
when he no longer can. 

"I suspect, my friend, 
that you were not alone in 
your mission, and I have a 
pretty good idea who the 
major suspects are ... So I 
will ask you not only to 
accept my thanks and 
deepest gratitude but to 
permit me to thank, 
through you, the other ben- 
efactors of my family." 

Then Liddy added a 
final, poignant line: 1 
hope to be able to thank 
you and all my other 
friends personally soon."

spending $150,000 to im-

Allegheny River. 

Apparently, the fish 
have been eating less since 
the engineers built the Kin- 
zua dam near Warren, 
Pa., 11 years ago. 

This is now troubling the 
engineers. They may be 
less concerned about the

ing ahead with a $150,000 
study to find out why the 
small-mouth bass have lost

Nix on Max: Last year,

But the brass hats secretly

It began to look as if 
the Air Force might finish 
the job and develop the 


A llttle 'ess than 200 years ago (1787), a 
group of peop , e gatnered together and 
wrote up a w of m|es (hat ^^ (q gujd£ a 
newly created country. They called it the 
Constitution of the United States of Amer- 
ica. Its purpose was to set up the basic 
laws of the new country, to guide its deci- 
sion making, and set up a series of checks 
and balances that would insure that no one 
person or branch of government would gain 
ascendency over the others. 

The ASCLC Constitution was also set 
up along these basic lines. The duties and 
purposes of each executive and legislative 
officer are clearly set out and defined. 

L «ely it has come to the attention of 
the ECHO that this document was casually 
set aside. Ignored by one person whose du- 
ty is to see that the Constitution is heeded 
and enforced: the ASCLC President. 

This is not to say he did it deliberately, 
or out of a misguided sense of power. The 
fact is it was done, and the ECHO does not 
feel this is in any way excusable. 

Craig Kinzer, ASCLC President for the 
'77-'78 academic year, in an act of what 
could possibly be called over-enthusiasm, 
signed a contract with Collegiate Products, 
Inc., giving them exclusive refrigerator ren- 
tal rights at CLC for five (5) years. To 

make it worse, prior to signing this 
he only consulted Shawn Howie, ASCLC 
Treasurer— none of the other Finance Com- 
mittee members were told of the action. In 
addition, the Summer Senate was not of- 
ficially notified. 

It is true that there is a 60 day notifi- 
cation period, which means that the 
ASCLC must notify the company in writ- 
ing, about a decision to terminate the con- 
tract 60 days in advance of any anniversary 
of the signing date. The ASCLC must also 
give a reason why they are considering can- 
cellation. Even so, CLC students are re- 
stricted to this one company's refrigerator 
for the whole year. The contract desig- 
nates the ASCLC $4.00 for every refriger- 
ator rented. 

Since the ASCLC Constitution does pro- 
vide for this sort of thing, in Article III, 
Section 4, Kinzer should have called a 
meeting of the Finance Committee, and 
put the proposal before them. In not do- 
ing this, he was overstepping his authority, 
and violating the basic right of freedom of 
choice for CLC students.

this government represent, care??? 

computer system without 
congressional knowledge. 
But last April, two con- 
gressmen got wind of what 
was happening. 

Democrats John Moss of 
California and Charles 
Rose of North Carolina 
investigated. They pro- 
duced evidence that 
Project Max was continu- 
ing - in violation of con- 
gressional orders. They 
lambasted the effort as a 
'classic example of con- 
tempt" for Congress. 

Now we have learned the 
Air Force followed up with 
its own investigation. The 
report has just been com- 

The Air Force's own 
probe confirmed the con- 
gressmens' charges and 
recommends discontinuing

mendation must be ap- 
proved by the secretary of

Male interested in being a sperm donor. 
The sperm specimens will be used to im- 
pregnate women, whose husbands have 
no sperm and are thereby unable to 
cause a pregnancy in their wives. These 
couples are highly motivated people who 
desperately want children, but are un- 
able to adopt because of the very few a- 
doptable babies available and the very 
large demand for them. A reasonable al- 
ternative is to have the wife impregnated 
with a specimen from an anonymous do- 
nor of the same race, with a good health 
background. The couples are willing and 
anxious to accept this method of having 
a child. 

The anonymity of the donor is absolute- 
ly assured and the couples sign a legal 
document stating that they will never 
seek to know the identity of the donor. 

The pay is excellent, 25 dollars a specimen. Up to 100 dollars 
a month. The rewards to the couple are inesttmatable. 

If interested in being interviewed as a possible donor, please 
call the doctors office at 498-4541 between 9-10 a.m. Monday 
through Friday or all day on Thursday and an appointment 
will be arranged.

Game of the year tomorrow! 


By Brad Reed 

This is it. This is THE big one. The one with the four stars. 
The drama is like "Gone With the Wind". The action like 
"Star Wars". It's the annual CLC-Redlands clash. It's happen- 
ing tomorrow. It's happening in Mount Clef Stadium. It begins 
at 2:00. ...SHARP!! "This game makes the difference between 
being in the top ten in the nation and the bottom one hun- 
dred", states head coach Robert Shoup. 

That should say it all. That sets the stage. 

In all but one of the last ten years one of these two teams 
has won the district championship and between them they 
have been in the National playoffs three times. The eleven year 
rivalry stands at seven games to four in favor of CLC and we 
have only to go back to last year's contest to consider the type 
of game it will be. The Kingsmen were tenaciously hanging on 
to 13-7 lead with U of R driving down towards the game win- 
ning touchdown. The game ended with the "Lu" on top as the 
defense denied the Bulldogs on the three yard line as time ran 
out. There Is no reason to believe that this years game will be 
any different. 

The University of Redlands features five All-Americans 
back from last years team which was runner-up in the nation. 
There only loss before the playoffs came at the hands of our 
Kingsmen who were not invited because of the probation plac- 
ed on them by the National Collegiate Association of Athle- 

Mark Weber, offensive guard 

Athlete of 
the week 

By Brad Reed 

Though the football team 
lost 24 y to UC Davis "Pot- 
sy" (as he is called by his 
teamates) was consistently e- 
ffective on his blocking as- 
signments and leading inter- 
ference. Weber is at least one 
bright spot in an otherwise 
injury plagued offensive line. 

Mark is a junior transfer 
who comes to us from Van 
Nuys where he has spent his 
who'? life. He was Lines- 
man of the Year at LA. Val- 
ley Junior College last year 
where he also gained honor- 
able mention honors in the 
Metro Conference.

CLC cross country had 
its first meet of the year last 
weekend. It was held in the 
Rose Bowl and pitted last 
year's junior college and 
NCAA Division 11.5,000 
meter champions Ed Ramirez 
(of CLC) and Louie Garcia. 

Not surprisingly but much 
to our pleasure Ramirez 
came out with first place 
honors in the 4 team meet, 
shattering the old course rec- 
ord by more than 30 sec- 
onds, covering the 4.7 mile 
course in 25 minutes, 4.1 sec- 
onds. The Kingsmen placed 
second by only 7 points to 
UC Riverside, who are rank- 
ed fifth in the NCAA Divis- 
ion II. 

Dave Helgeson (4th) and 
Dan Davies (6th) also had 
fine marks coming in at 
25:16 and 25:40 respective- 
ly. Both are transfers from 
Grossmont Junior College. 

Others scoring for the 
Kingsmen were Andy Black 
(27:54) and Ray Salcido 
(29:19). This is definitely a 
strong showing for a potent- 
ially championship caliber 
team which will run in the 
Las Vegas Invitational this

tics. Now ihe probation has been lifted the team is shoot- 
ing for the top four once more. To achieve this goai, tomor- 
rows game is a must win situation. It is a challenge that the 
players and coaches have looked forward to all week 
















































CLC defeated by Aggies 

By Reggie Gee 

The California Lutheran 
Kingsmen, before a capacity 
home crowd, were handed a 
frustrating, 24-9 gridiron de- 
feat by the Aggies of the 
University of California at 
Davis last week. 

Davis last week. 

The Aggies, who domi- 
nated in scoring, did not 
dominate the game totally 
as the Kingsmen rolled u 
292 total yards and Davi ac- 
counted for 307. 

The Kingsmen[s only 
touchdown came in the wan- 
ing minutes of the final per- 
iod when back-up quarter- 
back Casey McLaughlin came 
off the bench to replace in- 
jured John Kindred. Mc- 
Laughlin, taking charge of 
the offensive unit, drove his 
teammates 74 yards, com- 
pleting 6 of II passing at- 
tempts. The touchdown 
came with 1:59 remaining as 
he threw a strike on fourth 
down from the seven yard 
line to Chris Ortiz in the end 

It was obviously a disap- 
pointment for the Kingsmen 
after defeating the University 
of San Diego 25 to 19 in the 
previous week[s season 
opener also played at home. 

Couch Shoup, asked to 
comment on what he 
thought the problem was, 
summed up what most peop- 
le could see saying, "They 
were a better and stronger 
team. We played well en- 
ough to beat an average 
team, but not well enough 

to beat a good team." Da- 
vis was a good team. This 
is how the scoring went: 
The Aggies, clad in mus- 
tard yellow and escorted 
by their Maveric Band took 
Brad Hoffman's opening 
kick-off from their own 37 
yard line to the Kingsmen's 
14 where CLC's defense dug 
in forcing Davis to attempt 
a field goal, which failed. 
But, as if fate was with them, 
Davis was given a second 
opportunity to_cash 

i things be-

pay dirt when Kindred was 
hit and fumbled leading to a 
Davis recovery on the Kings- 
men 15. With 10:02 remain- 
ing in the first period, Davis 
tried once again to split the 
upright, this time success- 
fully making the score 3-0. 
One the next few series 
things were touch and go ■ 
with both teams ' defensive 
units setting the tempo of 
the game's progression until, 
with some 8 minutes expired, 
Don Jackson came up with a 
momentous 12 yard quarter- 


gan to happen. 

Taking the ball on their 
own 41, Cal Lutheran, mixing 
run and pass moved it's way 
to the Davis 14 where with 2 
minutes remaining, Hoffman 
answered the call with a 24 
yard field goal, closing the 1st 
quarter's book with a 3-3 
dead lock. 

To open the 2nd quarter, 
Davis' Thorn scampered 36 
yards to the Kingsmen 9 
where with 14:42 still show- 
ing on the clock, he scored. 
The extra point conversion 
was good, and the Aggies 
were now on top, IQ.3 

Davis added 2 field goals 
to enjoy a comfortable 16-3 
halt-time lead which was' 
never to be threatened 

JK °Pf nin 8 of the sec- 
ond half play was much like 
the first period as the defen- 
sive squads once again took 
charge. A pass interference

Kingsmen mto scoring posi-

Spikers hit the road 

By Tom Perez 

Last Friday night, CLC's women's volleyball team suffered 
its first loss to the CSUN J V team. "It was good experience. I 
can see where the team needs help and we finished strong," 
said a pleased Nancy Trego, women's coach. Though losing 
three straight, the CLC ladies did have an excellent third game. 

In the first two games, the v-ballers could not put it togeth- 
er. One factor could have been the lack of practice so far this 
year as a unit. The third game was a fight to the end, though, 
a 14-16 end for CLC. Dana Glover was hot in the third game 
as far as her serving went. At one point, Ms. Glover racked up 
five straight points to keep that game alive for CLC. Carol 
Lobitz, another stand-out in the serving department, was also 
at the net with a big claim on the excellent sets of rhe third 
game for CLC. A combination of gutsy bumps, precision pas- 
sing, and fine sets made the third game a pleasure to watch, 
with both teams leaving the court with mutual respect for 
one anorner. Offensive stand-outs were Sandi Enriquez, Irene 
Hull, and Debbie Schulze. Deffensive stand-outs were Diana 
Janke and Miss Lobitz. 

This year's team is composed of thirteen women as follows: 
Marcie Cleveland, Sandi Enriquez, Dana Glover, Irene Hull, 
Faith Ingersoll, Holly Jaacks, Diana Janke, Andrea Katt, Carol 
Lobitz, Karen Newmeyer, Debbie Schulze, Janine Thompson 
and Caron Gall!

This year's soccer team 
looks much better than last 
year's for a variety of rea- 
sons. As shown at Saturday's 
first pre-season scrimmage, 
the offense is fast and consis- 
tent and the defense is sharp 
and strong. Reasons for hav- 
ing such a fine team this year 
could be their new recruits. 
Chuck Seeger, Scott Roth- 
man, Scott King, and Scott 
Barker, or the suprising walk- 
ons: Scott Stormo, Paul 
Schwann. Our competition is 
tough this year, which the 
coach, Gary King, believes is 
due to the rapid growth in 
soccer interest.

The four vacant lots south of Mt. Clef Stadium occupy the ASCLC proposed future park site. 

New park would 
be $1,000 tax aid 

By Jeff bargmamf 

On the west end of campus lie four plots of land, the last 
four of many which were sold last year by California Luther- 
an College to developers who built a small housing tract on the 

The fate of the last four plots of land is still fairly undecid- 
ed. There are, however, plans for transforming the now barren 
land into a park for all students to enjoy. The transformation 
would not be a difficult one to make. 

Dean Buchanan, Vice President for Business and Finance 
Controller, sees the proposed park as having "Lots of college 
benefits." So much so, that Buchanan has offered "to contrib- 
ute $1,000 to the building of the park if it is completed before 
March I, 1978." The reason for the deadline is because March 
1, is the last day that the school has to change the tax status 
of the land. That is, the school currently pays $1,000 to taxes 
yearly just for the barren land. If the park is completed before 
the deadline, it would be possible for the school to be exampt 
from paying taxes on the land by making it "useable to the 
students." If the park is not completed by the deadline date, 
California Lutheran College will have to pay taxes again next 
year for the land. 

The land is currently 7oned R1, which means that only 
residential houses can be built. The zoning cannot be chang- 
ed until the year 1991, when the pacts made by the founders 
of California Lutheran College, 16 years ago, expires. 

Faculty makes 

changes in 

By Kathy Hitchcox 

"We didn't get everything 
done we wanted to but we 
accomplished many impor- 
tant things," explained Leo- 
nard Smith, history professor 
at CLC, about the annual fa- 
culty retreat held Semtember 
2-4 at the La Casa de Maria 
retreat center, Santa Barbara. 
The faculty, which delcr- 
mines academic policy, used 
the retreat as an organiza- 
tional meeting, means of ac- 
quainting old and new mem- 
bers, and as a seminar on 
theological education. Pres- 
ident Mathews, Dean Lyle 
Murley, Pastor Gerry Swan- 
son, and the other deans of 
the college were also present. 
"It was very relaxing and en- 
joyable," explained Smith, 
"There were no big problems 
; I was aware of." 

One of the main accom- 
plishments of the retreat, ac- 
; cording to Smith , was a com- 
■ plete change in the faculty 
' governance system. A model 
\ senate or a governance com- 
;: mittee were two proposals 
i the faculty studied. The gov- 
i ernance committee which 
' passed consists of a three per- 
son committee elected by the 
faculty which deals with su- 
? pervision and making recom- 
j mendations to the other com- 
I mitlees. The governance 
;: committee also makes nom- 
I inations for committees, 
while the whole faculty de- 
1 cides on rules, laws, policy 
1 changes, and the election of 
all officials. 

Prior to this year, the fa- 
culty decision-making was 
: made by the Chairperson of 
j the faculty department 
; chairmans, who met once 
* every month. Their policies 
: were then voted on by the 
entire faculty that same 
month. Currently, the fac- 
ulty officers are chairperson 
Ed Swenson, who coordinat- 
ed the retreat, vice chairper- 
son Wally Asper, and secre- 
tary Elsie Ferm. 

Before the governance 
committee is established, the 
Board of Regents must ap- 
prove a constitutional alter- 
ation proposed by the facul- 
ty. This proposal allows the 
president, dean of students, 
campus pastor and registrar 
of the college to be active 
voting members of the fac- 
ulty. The October meeting 
of the Regents will deter- 
mine this issue. 

A change of the descrip- 
tion for appointment of rank 
and tenure was also a major 
topic during the retreat. No- 
thing definite was decided. 

Buchanan explains deficit 

By Michaela Crawford 

The 1977-78 bud-jet of CLC "is still out of 
balance by $150,000" to quote the Septem- 
ber 22 memorandum from A. Dean Buchan- 
an, Vice President of Business and Finance. 
Some estimates have cited the deficit even 
higher. The exact extent of the problem will 
be known on October 5. Until then Buchanan 
said, "Everything is holding." 

When questioned at Senate Sunday night, 
Buchanan admitted thai the tuition raise this 
year will cover the present d eficit biij wiH not 
assure a future surplus. TfieTftttMHition will 
probably increase every year through not by 
this same degree. As he staled, "A $200 raise 
every other year can't prevail any longer." 

Students will also see the direct effect 
when the cutback in the student help budget 
is evidenced. This will be particularly obvious 
after January 1, 1978, when student hours 
will be cut further because minimum wage 
will become $2.65 per hour. 

The memorandum emphasized that last 
year "student help expenditures exceed bud- 
get by $30,000. Several departments are dan- 
gerously close to expending their entire stu- 
dent budget four months into the fiscal 
year." Every department has been asked to 
curb spending by 33 percent. 

In the Geology Department this figure is 
almost ten percent higher in the uncommit- 
ted funds budget, In monetary terms this is 
$2900 of a total $6420. 

Dr. James Evensen, Chairman of the 
Geology Department, intends to offset the 
lack of funds by "starting our own fund 
raising program so there will be no cutback in 
student related areas. There's no way We're 
going to have them suffer." 

Other changes according to the memoran- 
dum, are a freeze on all major purchases "ef- 
fective immediately." All requisitions will be 
scrutinized carefully and unsupported 
"check requests" will not be honored. The 
Business Office will also insure that line items 
are honored since last year Buchanan stated 
"some departments balanced their budget by 
shifting priorities and line items." 

A "hiring freeze" has also been declared. 
Presently, CLC is short two groundsmen, one 
custodian, and one plumber. This is at vari- 
ance with the fact that the administration 
has added nine administrators since Dr. 
Maurice Knutson, the individual who aided 
CLC through financial difficulties seven 
years ago, cut the administration personnel 
to thirty one. 

Survey finds that most students 
would prefer Resource Center 

By Brenda Peters 

Which would you rather 
see built at CLC-a new Learn- 
ing Resource Center (and lib- 
rary) or a new fully equipped 
gymnasium? This was the 
question asked in a survey 
conducted on campus last 
week. A very controversial 
question since both are 
needed desperately. 

Out of the 100 stud- 
ents surveyed, 54% voted 
for a new Learning Resource 
Center; 40% voted for a new 
gymnasium; 6% were unde- 
cided. The following are a 
few opinions on the subject: 

Jenny Cockerill, Jr., "I 
would rather have a learning 
resource center because the 
operation that Sheri Richards 
is now in charge of has help- 
ed me in my hour of dire 
need. Therefore, a new func- 
tional center would truly 
benefit each student in a sim- 
ilar situation." 

Billy Thomas, Fr., "I 
would prefer a new gymnas- 
ium because our present gym 
serves as a multi-purpose 
complex for various activities 
ranging anywhere from bas- 
ketball to the mockery of a 
congregation on Sundays. 
The needs of the students 
have always been to have an 
auditorium separate from the 
gym. After all, the gym is an 
athletic enclave, not the 
town hall." 

Terry Ecker, Jr., "I would 
rather have a new gym. The 
learning resource center that 
we have now is large enough 
for the size of the student 
body at CLC. Our gym now 
is too small. With a new gym, 
people would get more in- 
volved with sports, and this is 
important to relieve the pres- 
sures of school." 

Al Staie, Sr., 
like to have a nev 
resource center. 


"I would 
i library and 
I must put 

academics before 

A new library and Learn- 
ing Resource Center is on the 
top of the list for new devel- 
opmental improvements on 
campus. Closely following 
behind is the new gymnas- 
ium. So what is holding these 
pending projects up? Togeth- 
er, the new resource center 
and the gymnasium will cost 
well over four and one half 
million dollars.

With the departure of 
Public Relations Director Mr. 
Jon Olsen, last semester, Ca- 
lifornia Lutheran College 
would like to welcome a new 
administrator to the campus. 

Mr. Bill Hamm, Assistant 
to the President for Admis- 
sions/College Relations, came 
to CLC on September 1. Fil- 
ling an essentially new posi- 
tion, Mr. Hamm is in charge 
of college public relations, 
communicating the aspects 
and goats of California Luth- 
eran College to the commun- 
ity and prospective students. 

Mr. Hamm graduated 
from Wartburg College, in 
Iowa, and later worked in ad- 
missions at that same college. 
He did his graduate work at 
the University of Iowa. In 
1975, working with Johnson 
Associates Inc. , a manage- 
ment consulting firm in ad- 
missions, he became project 
director at Huntington Col- 
lege, in Montgomery, Ala- 

Mr. Hamm, himself, is im- 
pressed with CLC and stated 
that the college has "a vital- 
ity that is quite remarkable 
for a college its size." He is- 
also impressed with the fac- 
ulty here at CLC and stated 
that you can "learn a lot 
when you work with people 
who are very capable in their 
own individual areas." 

Living in We Midwest for 
most of his life, Mr. Hamm 
enjoys the climate and envir- 
onment of Thousand Oaks, 
and Southern California. 

From the student body, 
welcome to California Luth- 
eran College.

Roller Skating Night is only one of the coming events paid for by your $3.00 class dues. 

Treasuries finance 

By Robyn Saleen 

Do you remember those 
$3.00 dues you paid as a 
freshman? Perhaps you've 
been wondering whatever 
happened to that money. 
Well, this article intends to 
answer that question. 

Those $3.00 went into 
your class budget to get you 
and your class going on fu- 
ture activities. These activi- 
ties could include fun events 
for either your class or the 
entire school. Any other acti- 
vities would probably be 
fund-raising events to build 
up your treasury and pay for 
future "fun and games." 

Three dollars from each 
freshman builds up a size- 
able savings account and, 
consequently, after having 
saved this money, the Sopho- 
more class this year has the 
largest treasury. Their total 
amounts to $580.00. Sopho- 
more class treasurer, Cary 
Hegg, reports they've already 
sponsored "Sophomore Sun- 
dae Night" in the barn. He 
went on to say the sopho- 
mores "would like to sponsor 
another dance and also have 

a "Pizza Night". "Pizza 
Night" is essentially a fund- 
raising activity where the 
class officers take over a pizza 
parlor for an evening, prepare 
all the pizza, and the rest of 
the class is encouraged to 
come to the pizza parlor for 
a "royal munch-out." The 
class then receives a percen- 
tage of the profits for the 

Junior class treasurer, 
Scott Solberg, reports that 
the juniors have $300.00 in 
their treasury and $200.00 in 
their Savings Account. With 
this money they plan to spon- 
sor a roller skating party, an 
ice cream social, and perhaps 
a movie. Other events will 
be fund-raising activities such 
as a "Pizza Night", a car ral-

Honor society formed 

By Maia Siewertsen 

For those students inter- 
ested in representing CLC in 
admission tours, counseling 
or high school visitation, 
there is a new honor society 
called the " Kingsmen- Pres- 
idential Hosts. " that is now 
accepting applications. 

Bob Taylor, a 1977 CLC 
graduate now an admissions 
counselor, explains that this 
new organization was for- 
merly the " President's 
Hosts." Those who were cho- 

sen as Presidential Hosts last 
year will not serve their 
positions this year, but in- 
stead, twenty new Hosts will 
be chosen. 

Prerequisites for accep- 
tance in the new " Hosts " 
program arc to have at least 
a 2.25 GPA, full-time aca- 
demic status, leadership qual- 
ities, public relations skills, 
and a commitment to CLC. 

Applications for this new 
organization are available in 
the Admissions Office 

Class resourceful 

By Jeff Bargmann 

A new course entitled 
"Learning Resources" made 
its debut this fall at Califor- 
nia Lutheran College. The 
class, required of all fresh- 
men, is aimed not in any one 
particular area of study, 
but towards a goal of "self- 
realization" for the students. 

The course, unique to the 
CLC campus, has been 
proven very effective in ma- 
ny other liberal arts colleges 
in the nation, The courses 
are taught by the nineteen 
advisors at CLC, each teach- 
ing his or her advisees. The 
uniqueness of the course 
is that every teacher can 
teach his section of the 
class any way that he desires, 
the result being that no two 

classes would be alike. Ac- 
cording to Dr. Kolitsky, the 
chairman of the program, 
"freshmen wil! be exposed 
to their advisor at least once 
a week". Hopefully, the stu- 
dents will feel free to "go to 
their advisor for any aca- 
demic or even personal prob- 
lem they might encounter," 
says Kolitsky. 

The Learning Resource 
class is the outgrowth of 
many meetings between Kol- 
itsky and student advisors 
during the summer. The aim 

of this class is towards "the 
enrichment and the living of 
a better life" for the student. 
"Getting the thought pro- 
cesses of the student work- 
ing" is another goal, says Dr. 
Kolitsky - Students in the 
course are not taught any 
academic subject, rather 
they are exposed to different 
ideas and opinions in hopes 
of expanding the students' 
own minds. 

One instructor, Jerald 
Slattum, uses an approach 
that is totally different from 
any other form of teaching. 
So far this semester, he has 
taken his class, along with 
Tchaicovsky, to the stables, 
the men's room, and the 
locker room, "just to hear 
the music in different set- 
tings". Slattum even tried to 
get his music and students 
into the mortuary but was 
not given permission to en- 
ter. The purpose of these 
and other novelties is to 
"help the students realize 
their own resources". How- 
ever, Slattum's class is only 
one of nineteen, each class 
going its own way with each 
advisor using his/her own 
technique to help the stu- 
dent. Although it is too early 
to tell how successful the 
classes are, it is evident that 
they have started in the right 

total of $130.00 in the senior 
budget. Activities for the fu- 
ture will be primarily fund- 
raising in order to build up 
the senior gift. These events 
will include a newspaper and 
aluminum can re-cycling drive, 
selling coupons for McDon- 
alds, and taking a group to 
see "Tattletales" game show. 
A senior dinner is planned 
for sometime in November 
and another dinner is plann- 
ed for the spring. Also in the 
spring, are plans for a wine 
tasting party for the seniors. 
Any money left over will be 
used to sponsor movies.

"The Director of Grants is 
responsible for identifying 
and researching corporations, 
foundations and government 
agencies which have a com- 
mitment to the support of 
higher education and for the 
solicitation of funds from the 
same." The man accepting 
this position as Director of 
Grants is Dr. Chester Haus- 

Born and raised in Minne- 
sota, he graduated from St. 
Olaf College with a double 
major in chemistry and 
mathematics. At Colorado 
State College he received his 
M.A. in secondary education 
jn 1956; and his Ed.D in 
1963. He has been a research 
and development specialist 
for the past ten years. 

As the Director of Grants, 
Dr. Hausken will be responsi- 
ble to research three partic- 
ular sources which the col- 
lege should approach with 
grant proposals. These sour- 
ces are as follows: A) Feder- 
al government-a variety of 
federal agencies grant money 
for specific research and in- 
stitution projects; B) Special 
fund raising effort-founda- 
tion proposals to support 
specific goals of the college; 
C) Corporations-specific cor- 
porations are asked to be on 
our mailing list to stimulate 
monetary donations on an 
annual basis. 

An intelligent ;,nd capable 
man, Dr. Hausken's job will 
keep corporate and private 
foundations aware of CLC's 
activities, philosophy and fi- 
nancial condition. A col- 
league recently said this of 
Dr. Hausken, "I have been 
with Chester on field visits 
to schools, colleges, and 
government agencies on nu- 
merous occasions. He is e- 
qually at home with a tea- 
cher, a college president, 
or a government official. I 
feel he combines an ideal 
balance between academic 
background and warm and 
open friendliness."

iRay "Elvis" Hebel to go on tour 

j By Cindy Saylor 

After releasing his first single, CLC's own 
Ray "Elvis" Hebel is leaving Thousand Oaks 
to perform at Azuza Pacific on October 19. 
Following that engagement, he looks forward 
to playing at the Hilton in Honolulu, Hawaii 
on November 4 for two shows. For those 
who just might happen to be at the Island, 
tickets are selling for $12.50. 

He's not quite the same Ray Hebel that we 
remember though, because he's taken on a 
stage name, and so the show will be called 
The Ray-Michael Show-THE LEGEND 

His single came out less than two weeks 
;o titled once again, "Elivis-The Legend 
' Still Alive." CLC's on-campus radio sta- 

tion, KRCL. was the first to preview this cut , 
before it was released in the country. 

His manager and consultant, Mr. Don j 
Haskell, revealed that Ray-Michael has just [ 
signed with American Entertainment, a pro- 
fessional organization of managers and produ- 
cers. Hopefully, through them he will be I 
booked at colleges and universities througl 
out the United States. No, he doesn't stop [ 
there. Next year, they're hoping for a tour of [i 
the Orient and a European run. 

Those who remember and enjoyed his pei 
formances at CLC, should be disappointed j 
though, because the alumnus will not be pei 
forming for the Thousand Oaks community f 
this year. 

Women's Program opens doors 

By )an Swanson 

Susan Groves, the director 
of women's studies in Berk- 
eley's public schools, was im- 
pressed by the responses of 
4th-6th grade girls to the 
question, "what do you want 
to be when you grow up?" 
Many of the girls came up 
with relatively unconvent- 
ional answers such as "forest 
ranger", "doctor", or "pi- 
lot". To check the validity of 
these responses, however, she 
asked the same students to 
write an essay entitled.^ "A 
day in my life at age 35." In- 
stead of describing the tasks 
of a forest ranger or doctor, 
the girls wrote exclusively 
about the absorbing ac- 
tivities of being a homemak- 
er. Ms. Groves concluded 
from this study that girls, 
even those whose mothers 
arc working outside the 
home, do not have enough 
concrete information about 
women who actually hold 
those jobs and thus, they are 
unable to "image" them- 
selves in such a position. 

Anyone who has reviewed 
instructional materials- from 
the kindergarten to the col- 
lege classroom- knows that 
women are primarily por- 
trayed in conventional roles. 
The media, particularly ad - 
vertizing, does little to re- 
flect the changes that are 
beine made in women s lives. 
The Women's Program 
at CLC is hoping to pro- 
vide new and less confin- 
ing images for women stu- 
dents The key word in this 
pTocess is CHOICE Each 
Woman should be free o 
choose the level of edu- 
cation, the lifestyle, and 
the career that is appro- 
priate for her. In order 
to choose, women need to 
come in contact with a 
full range of options, through 
positive role models non- 
Jexist curricular maenals, 
and a variety of field ex-

opportunities for change. 
On Sept. 21, a workshop fo- 
cused on the fields of science 
and math, and gave students 
the chance to get first-hand 
information about careers in 
medicine and technology. In 
May, women will be intro- 
duced to new opportunities 
in business and management 
during a similar workshop. 

As new images of women 
in society have gained 
strength, they have also been 
severely criticized.. Recent 
opposition to the ERA in- 
dicates a continuing confu- 
sion over what kind of image 
women should have under 
the law.. The CLC commun- 
ity will have a chance to add 
their voices to the debate 
on November 15 when a 
film "DADDY DON'T lit 
SILLY " will set the stage 
for an Open Mike discussion. 
Interestingly, this program 
comes just three days be- 
fore the Congress-backed 
National Women's Confer- 
ence opens in Houston. 
The conference-goers anti- 
cipate a culmination in the 
controversy between pro- 
ERA and anti-ERA cam- 
paigners, which has been rag- 
ing for months in preliminary 
state conferences. 

The spring semester will 
start off with an Artist/Lec- 
ture performance by Holly 
Near, a northern Californian 
who sings with verve about 
her commitment to justice 
and liberation in society. The 
Women's Program will spon- 
sor' a workshop with Holly, 
focusing on women's music 
and protest music, during the 
afternoon of February 9.

dents encounter situations in 
which sexism operates and 
consider how it might feel to 
slip into the shoes of the

their unique societal pres- 
sures and expectations. 
Hopefully the game will not 
only make those involved 
more understanding but also 
open up more flexible role 

The focal point of the 
Women's Program activities 
on campus is the Women's 
Resource Center, located 
next to the Career Planning 
Center in the Commons. 
The Center is staffed by |an 
Swanson, Coordinator of the

lieves that such programs are

The beauty and majesty 
of it strike the beholder at 
once. The Gym is totally 
dominated by its vibrant 
splashes of color which form 
the contours of the familiar 
and yet always new symbols 
of our Christian faith. The 
New Earth's wall hanging, 
accomplished by Pacific Pali- 
sades artist Lois Diffrient 
specifically for CLC, was 
dedicated by Pastor Gerry 
Swanson at Sunday morning 
worship on September 11. 

"We had the need for a 
focal point in the Gym to 
help us in our worship," 
commented Mary Stein, As- 
sistant to the Pastor. "It pro- 
vides an inward and upward 
focus," Ms. Stein continued. 

The New Earth is cogni- 
zant of its privilege in posses- 
ing such a unique work of art 
as the wall hanging, or rere- 
dos (pronounced "reerdoss") 
in ecclesiastical terms. 

The germ for the idea of 
the creation of the reredos 
was born one Sunday in the 

(cont. on Pane 4] 


munion service at Messiah 
Lutheran Church in Pasade- 
na. She was impressed by 
the chasuble (ecclesiastical 
vestment) worn by Pastor 
Scott Haasarud. It was all 
white, but when he turned a- 
round, she was struck by 
"the magnificent flaming 
oranges and reds and greens 
on the back, and a }.,ray moth 
in the middle. It was a pow- 
erful expression of new life," 
exclaimed Ms. Stein. 

At CLC Ms. Stein dis- 
cussed the possibility of mak- 
ing a reredos with' a friend. 
The theme would be the Tri- 
nity. Awed by the task, she 
contacted Pastor Haasarud 
who gave her the phone num- 
ber of Lois Diffrient, the cre- 
ator of his chasuble. 

Ms. Stein phoned Ms. 
Diffrient and was impressed 
that she was "...a soft-spo- 
ken, strong woman, the kind 
who is somewhat of a mys- 
tery, with a goodness to her 
voice and depth to her be- 

Soon th two met to share 
tne jr ideas of how to repre- 
jent the Trinity. Ms. Stein 
was concerned that the rere- 
dos would reflect "... the 
ethereal kind of mystery of 
olir believing." 

A warm relationship grew 
between the two as the rere- 
dos came to be. Ms. Diffri- 
ent began the first week of

hosed it down on her drive- 
way, hung it to dry on the 
clothesline, and ironed it be- 
fore presenting it to the con- 
gregation. The brilliant sym- 
bols are appliqued onto the

bol is the burning bush, signi- 
fying God the Father, with 
flames above and green be- 
low to represent the bush 
which is not consumed. Over 
the flames are a dove and 
blue wind to represent the

the scarlet rose, which can 
denote the Rose of Sharon 
(Jesus), or the crown of 
thorns, or |esus' shed blood,

meanings. The cross, be- 
tween the rose and the dove, 
is of white velvet and is the 
only material on the reredos 
through which light cannot 
penetrate. Below i( are the 
grapes, wheat, bread and 
wine, blood and water, all 
Christ symbols. 

Ms. Stein asserted that the 
reredos has added a new di- 
mension to worship at CLC. 
Since the observer can con- 
tinually find further meaning 
in it, Ms. Stein stated, "It 
will continue to live."

During the summer of 1976, 
came a reality for CLC's Drama Department, 
under the direction of Dr. Richard Adams and 
Mr. Don Haskell. Those three months 
brouRht CLC to the limelight, with the begin- 
nings of the Southwest Repertory Theater 
Right now, though, this subject involves 
concern and disappointment because of the 
administration's abrupt cancellation of the 
program last summer. 

Until 1 976, summer theater consisted of a 
Drama Department sponsored play and a mus- 
ical feeding the community. Auditions were 
open to everyone. The program offered no a- 
cademic credit and little, if any, educational 

As a result, in September of 1975, Adams 
and Haskell proposed a five-year goal for a 
Summer Resident Theater Company to the 
LLC administration. The five-year goal was 
and still is, foreign to any otner academic de- 
partments at the campus. The proposal inclu- 
ded daily workshops for ages 4 through sen- 
ior citizens in theater, music, art, television 
and radio, followed by participation in per' 
formances of four different musicals. 

The basic reason for summer theater evol- 
ved from the concept that "the performing 
arts is a year-round business. Just because 
classes are over doesn't mean the theater 
ends," stated Mr. Don Haskell in a recent in- 
terview. He feels that 'college should be the 
cultural center" for the community. 

Bv 1976, the proposal was accepted by the 
administration, but it was renamed the 
Southwest Repertory Theatre and specifically

included students from Moorpark and, conse- 
quently, their monetary support. The pro- 
gram was scheduled to work in conjunction 
with the Conejo Park and Recreation Depart- 
ment which brought in an additional $4000. 

But the school lost some money on the 
venture-$8,600 to be exact. However, the to-

?4000, 90% of the people attending never

Then why not theater this last summer? 
Haskell's reasoning is that " the administra- 
tion did not research the project, and they did 
not realize the potential of what summer the- 
ater could be and do." 

As far as the budget, the program was 
scheduled to be twice the size of last year's, 
with a necessary allotment of $15,000. Moor- 
park junior College donated $8,000 and the 
Conejo Parks and Recreation Department do- 
nated $5,000, leaving CLC risking only 
$2,000 in the renewal of the proposal. The 
theater was not cancelled until late in May, af- 
ter all publicity was printed and classes were 
already scheduled. A simple but firm "no" 
left Adams and Haskell disappointed and this 
year's proposal misunderstood. 

As far as its possibility for next summer,

Yes, the magical mystery 
tour to the enchanted land of 
applestreudel and cuck-coo 
clocks is back by popular de- 
mand. Last year's trip was so 
successful that students have 
Stanford, coordinator of last 
year's trip, day and night. 
And since Stanford is basical- 
ly an agreeable guy, he deci- 
ded that he would have to 
make the trip again. Besides 
that, he thinks he might en- 
joy going back once more. 

But this time he did some 
special planning and actually 
came up with a better itiner- 
ary than last year's trip. For 
one, the group is going to 
leave earlier; this is in order 
to be in Vienna on New 
Year's Eve, go to the Kaiser- 
ball, and attend the only win- 
ter performance of the royal 
Lipizzan horses in Vienna. 
Stanford has also arranged 
other extra events for this 
year's tour. 

The trip itself will start on 
the 28th of December and re- 
turn around the 26th of Jan- 
uary. However, these dates 
are not final vet. So any 
interested students should 
get in contact with Stanford 
at his office in G-19. This 
should be done by Oct. 10, 
and the initial deposit for the 
airfare should be in by Oct. 
26 For more information, 
please contact Stanford or

No matter what discipline 
you are involved in, whether 
as a student or a teacher, it is 
very much to your advantage 
to take your work out into 
the "field" where you can 
practically apply what you 
learn or teach in the class- 
room. But what can you do 
if you're a French major in 
the Conejo Valley? 

French major Laine Bur- 
key came up with a good 
idea. Slv took a year off 
from CLC to study at the In- 
stitute of American Universi- 
ties in Aix-en -Provence, 
France . This gave her a 

with the language and exper- 
ience the French culture and 
lifestyle first hand. Says 
Laine, "You can study a 
country or tavel through it, 
but you'll never get to know 
it as well as you would by liv- 
ing in it." 

The Institute of American 
Universities is an American 
school affiliated with the Un- 
iversity of Aix-Marseille. All 
of Laine's professors were 
French, although there were 
a few English and American 
professors that taught there. 
120 American students at- 
tend the school. 

Laine spent two semesters 
taking French language and 
grammar classes, art-history 
classes, plus French cooking 
and wine tasting classes.. 
When she wasn't in the class- 
room, she was traveling all 
over southern Europe "see- 
ing the history all around" 
her, going out to discos, tas- 
ting wines, and eating French 
pastries. One of the high- 
lights was the mardi gras in 
Aix-en-Provence. Says Laine, 
"The classroom education 
was good but outside the 
class it was reallv good." 

Laine lived with a family 
of four, including an 18 year 

old daughte 
old son in at 
home three 
She rode a 
from school 

and a 20 year 
tiles from town, 
mo-ped to and 
"In fact," she 
says, "everyone rides mo- 
peds and bicycles. They are 
very energy conscious. Gas is 
expensive- well over a dollar 
a gallon. Every family has a 
small car but rides bikes most 
of the time." 

"'The lifestyle is simpler 
and slower with a lot less 
competition than in America. 
People relax almost too 
much. The family unit is 
stronger. Every Sunday af- 
ternoon everything shuts 
down for the big family sup- 

Laine said that living con- 
ditions are not as modern 
and "life is more expensive." 
It was disheartening for her 
to see the Communist influ- 
ence in France. She believes 
the Communists will take o- 
ver in the next election. 

Of the total experience 
she says, "There were a lot of 
hard times. I was homesick 
in the beginning, but I didn't 
want to leave at the end." 

Laine is a senior and 
hopes to work for an inter- 
national airlines in public re- 
lations, so for her it was "ex- 
cellent to learn the language, 
culture, and lifestyle of 
France. I was really lucky to 
do that! When I got back 
home it all seemed like a

ulating opportunity for stu- 
dents, faculty, slaff and a0 . 
n> inistrators to g e , in tou ch 
with a maior force for change 
in our society. 

Several courses at CLC 
emphasize material by and 
about women ' 




1 Literature, Images 
of Women in Film, Women 
and Crime, Women in His- 
panic Literature and Women 
m rrench Literature. Equally 
important, however is the 
incorporation of 'material 
sensitive to women's issues 
into the total liberal arts cur- 

riculum. Students who are 
aware of this need will quest- 
ion professors who exclude 
curricular material on women 
or who use texts portraying 
women in ways which delim- 
it or stereotype them. 

The Women's Center also 
provides a place to find out 
about women's possibilities 
and accomplishments, their 
lives, work, history, and edu- 
cation. By gathering mater- 
ials-books, periodicals, and 
an indexed file of resources- 
the Center encourages re- 
search regarding the perspec- 
tives and contributions of 
women-areas that have been 
overlooked in the past.

Beef, turkey, 
or horsemeat? 


By Karen Coppage 

Each time I return from a 
meal in the cafeteria, I con- 
clude that little, if any, of 
the extra money from the 
student's increasing tuition 
costs were appropriated into 
the food budget. I have 
learned, from an unnamed 
authority, that within the 
week all budgets will be cut 
by a possible 33 percent. I 
am wondering if at that time 
we will get a taste of star- 

I'm tired of going down 
finding wilted brown lettuce 
among scattered lettuce cores 
and having to psych myself 
into believing I can make a 
salad out of it. I don't want 
to complain too much.... 


they did extend the salad 
bar and put up tute little 
signs telling us which" line is 
for cold lunches and which 
is for hot lunches. Of course, 
I still haven't found a line 
down there where the food 
IS hot. 

As for the meat dishes, 
this is one person that con- 
stantly has to wonder if it's 
beef, turkey, or horsemeat 
from Argentina. 

We, the ASB of Califor- 
nia Lutheran College, must 
put an end to this type of 
abuse. We are young, 
andstrong and if we are to 
stay that way the quality 
of CLC's cafeteria food 
will have to improve. 


Seat Belts or Air Bags? 

Department of Transpor- 
tation is trying to settle a 
multimillion-dollar dis- 
pute: should future auto- 
mobiles be equipped with 
seat belts or air bags? 

Transportation Depart- 
ment officials favor air 
bags. These would auto- 
matically inflate in case of 
an accident. Safety experts 
estimate that air bags 
would save between 9,000 
and 12,000 lives every year. 

Bui the safety belt coun- 
cil is fighting to save seat 
belts. It has a champion on 
Captiol Hill in the form of 
Rep. Bud Shuster, R-Pa., 
who has been attacking air 
bags and defending seat 

We previously reported 
that air bags might be 
hazardous because a toxic 
chemical, called sodium 
azide, is used to inflate 
them. We quoted Shuster 
as warning that the poison- 
ous chemical might leak. 
We also quoted the head of 
the Highway Traffic Safety 
Administration, Joan Clay- 
brook, who said the chemi- 
cal would be safely sealed. 

Now we've uncovered 
some startling new evi- 
dence which raises a ques- 
tion about Shuster's credi- 
bility. He has been citing a 
report by a private re- 
search organization, 
known as Economics and 
Science Planning. The 
study claims that seat 
belts save more lives than 
air bags would. 

But the study may be 
tainted. The research 
group, we've learned, has 
been doing business with 
the safety belt council. The 
group has collected at least 
$15,000 from the seat belt 

Representative Shuster, 
furthermore, has been 
claiming the study is sup- 
ported by the Highway 
Traffic Administration. 
But this has been denied by 
Joan Claybrook. 

She has written a private 
letter to Rep. John Moss, 
D-Calif., declaring that the 
study is inaccurate and 
does not represent the 
agency's views. The fact 
is," wrote Claybrook, "air 
bags are four times as 
effective in preventing fa- 
talities as safety belts." 

A spokesman for the re- 
search firm said the study 
was not influenced by their 
relationship with the 
safety belt council. Shuster 
also denied that his state- 
ments have been mislead- 
ing. Despite Claybrook's 
disavowal, he continued to 
insist that the study was 
financed by her agency. 

Concorde Clamor — The 
controversial, supersonic 
Concorde is the world^s 
noisiest airliner. But it is 
producing more noise on 
Captiol Hill than in the 

The Concorde flies faster 
than sound. But it takes off 
and lands with such a roar 
that environmentalists 
have fought to keep it out 
of U.S. airports. 

A House subcommittee, 
headed by Rep. Leo Ryan, 
D-Calif.. is investigating 

the Concorde s noise proD- 
lem. Ryan called upon 
Transportation Secretary 
Brock Adams for the se- 
cret presidential options on 
the Concorde. 

Adams, in turn, spoke to 
the president's national se- 
curity advisor, Zbigniew 
Brzezinski. He agreed that 
Ryan could see the secret 
options if he kept the infor- 
mation to himself. Ryan 
refused the offer. 

Instead, the Representa- 
tive called on two transpor- 
tation experts to testify 
before his committee. Nei- 
ther one appeared. The 
enraged Ryan shot off a 
letter to Adams, demand- 
ing an explanation. Adams 
claimed there had been a 
misunderstanding, and the 
witnesses later appeared. 

We have learned, mean- 
while, that federal officials 
have admitted the Con- 
corde cannot meet U.S. 
noise abatement stand- 

Under The Dome — Age 
is finally catching up with 
Sen. John Sparkman, D- 
Ala. The 77-year-old 
lawmaker recently toddled 
out of a Capitol Hill eleva- 
tor on the wrong floor and 
was on the way down the 
hall when two of his col- 
leagues called him back. 
'I'm like an old horse." he 
sighed. "You open the barn 
door and out I go." 

— Rep. James Jeffords. 
R-Vt., has come up with a 
proposal that calls for spe- 
cial solar or wind-powered 
generators to be installed 
at American embassies 
overseas. That way, Jef- 
fords believes. Third 
World governments would 
get a chance to see work- 
ing models of devices that 
use readily available 
sources of energy. The 
plan would cost only $5 
million and U.S. embassies 
would save money now 
spent for conventional oil

Ditch Hilch — Because of 
a couple of major hitches, 
the Panama Canal treaty 
recently signed by Presi- 
dent Carter and Panama- 
nian strongman Omar Tor- 
rijos may never go into 

The biggest barrier to an 
eventual turnover of the 
canal to Panama, of 
course, is the U.S. Senate. 
Two-thirds of the Senate 
must agree to the treaty 
before it will be ratified. 

But there's another prob- 
lem. According to the Pan- 
amanian Constitution, the 
power to enter into interna- 
tional treaties and agree- 
ments rests solely with the 
president of Panama. Tor- 
rijos is not the president. 
He is commander of the 
national guard and leader 
of the Panamanian revolu- 

According to State De- 
partment sources, the Pan- 
amanian president dele- 
gated the treaty-signing 
authority to Torrijos. 
There is still a possibility, 
however, that the treaty 
may have violated Pana- 
i law. 

Letters to the Editor 

waited until 
meeting of 

as to have 
ation avail- 

Dear Editor, , 

In looking at the Echos 
editorial opinion of Septem- 
ber 23rd, I feel that there are 
a couple of misleading ideas 
expressed, that need clarifi- 
cation. First of all, students 
may rent refrigerators from 
any company they wish to 
and are not restricted to rent- 
ing from Collegiate Products, 
Inc. (CPI), as the editorial im- 
plied. The contract actually 
just gave CPI exclusive on 
campus advertising rights at 
the fee of $4 per refrigerator 
rented, payable to the 
ASCLC. Secondly, in looking 
at the circumstances, I don't 
believe the signing of the con- 
tract could have 
the fall, and a 
the Finance Cot 
cause the idea < 
the rental inforn 
able for students at the be- 
ginning of the semester. 

Although I believe that 
Craig acted outside his desig- 
nated authority, I think he 
acted in the best interests 
of an the students individu- 
ally and for the ASCLC as 
a whole. Therefore, if stu- 
dents would look at this issue 
in its proper perspective, 
there would be no doubt 
that Craig should not be 
condemned for his "bending 
of the Constitution", but 
rather commended for his be- 
neficial action. 

Sincerely yours, 
Bob Glatt 


The Echo believes Kinzer 
did not act in the best 
Interests of the students or 
the ASCLC. To begin with, 
by signing an exclusive rights 
contract as it refers to 
advertising, Kinzer blocked 

what is normally caih 
enterprise. The company hi 
signed with is an old compan- 
y based in Oklahoma and just 
getting started out here, CLC 
is one of a handful it presently 
serves in the ' West. It pays 
its field representative nicely, 
we as students pay for this. 
Polar Leasing, for example, is 
half a dozen years old and 
has a local clientele which in- 
cludes USC and UCLA. Smal- 
ler and more efficient just by 
locality, they were prepared 
to rent refrigerators at a sub- 
stantially lower price. Because 
Kinzer did not follow (he 
constitution and wait until 
the Finance Committee could 
make a recommendation, Po- 
lar Leasing was denied adver- 
tising rights, and this denied 
students the possibility of 
choice. They could look else- 
where of course, but their 
President told them he had 
found the "best deal". Also, 
there is a large difference be- 
tween talking to three foot- 
ball buddies on the practice 
field about some nifty con- 
tract and sitting down with 
the full Summer Senate to 
discuss the matter cogently. 
The Echo believes what hurts 
the students hurts the 
ASCLC in the long run, and 
despite the inexperience of 
the ASCLC, care should be 
employed when actions de- 
signed to advertise the 
ASCLC are daringly attempt- 
ed. Finally, the fifteenth art-

ASrTr\ When ha$ the 
Vri , been P°y' n 9 '"<? Me- 
trical costs of the College? 

Dear Editor, 

Last spring, one of the big 
campaign issues of the presi- 
dential candidates was the 
possibility of having a big- 
name rock band perform a 
concert for the spring holi- 
day at CLC this year. Sounds 
like a great idea, doesn't it? 
There seem to be a few prob- 
lems, however, that might 
make this idea less of a possi- 
bility than was first realized 
by the ideas' originator. 

First of all, the least 
expensive band available ap- 
pears to be along the lines of 
Seals and Crofts. They would 
charge about $20,000.00. The 
band "America" would runa- 
bout $25,000.00 and a band 
like the Doobie Brothers 
would run anywhere from 
$35,000.00 on up. The prob- 
lem lies in the fact that the 
ASCLC Social Chairman is al- 
lotted only$1,800.00for the 
spring holiday. With dona- 
tions from AMS andAWS, 
along with money left over 
from dances and other stu- 
dent activities, this figure 
could possibly be boosted to 
$3,000.00. Obviously, the 
students cannot afford the 
type of band being talked a- 

This brings us to the sug- 
gestion of selling tickets to 
the public. If 5,000 tickets 
were sold at $5.00 a ticket, 
we would be able to hire a 
band costing $25,000.00. 
But the whole process of 
publicity would cost at least 
in additional $1,000. This 
ctor excluded, there is also 
the problem of where we 
would have the concert. With 
5,000 people from the com- 
munity AND the entire CLC 
student body, we are talk- 
ing about nearly 6,500 peo- 
ple. CLC does not have ade- 
quate facilities to seat so ma- 
ny people— not to mention 
our lack of parking space 
and restrou.ns. A concert like 
this would also warrant se- 
curity that would have to be 
hired by the student body. 

The point is, CLC is not a 
school that is in a position 
to sponsor a big concert. 
It is this writer's opinion 
that we use the money we 
do have to look for and hire 
a band that has not neces- 
sarily hit the "top 40" yet, 
but is still good. This way, 
we would not run into fi- 
nacial problems and we would 
keep the spring holiday for 
just the student body to en- 
joy. It may have sounded like 
a good idea, but does it 
really seem worth it? 

Robyn Saleen 

Most probably, you're al- 
ready drooling all over this 
newspaper. Well, friends, 
read on. Mine's a sad sto- 
ry, but it must be told; if 
only because my misery 
craves your company. 

Late last Saturday morn- 
ing I pried myself out of bed 
and joined the other late ris- 
ers in line at the cafeteria. 
Imagine our pleasant shock 
as the aroma of steak and eggs 
entranced our nostrils. 

Unfortunately, our plea- 
sure was quickly squelched 
by a man who, not unkindly, 
said, "Sorry, boys, but this 
line is closed." I could find 
only two minor faults in his 
speech. To wit: 

I.) One of us "boys" had 
on a low-cut dress showing 
ample cleavage. 

2.) I noticed that there 
were five gentlemen in front 
of me and about twenty 
steaks left to be served. 

I thought that perhaps he 
was an even later riser than 
myself, in which his faulty 
arithmetic could be forgiven. 
(His mistake as to the gender 
of the "boy" next to me was 
unforgivable.) Little did 1 
know that he had, in fact, 
been up earlier than myself- 
rehearsing a burly ballet 
known as football. 

Over my SAUSAGE and 
eggs my disappointment soon 
turned to curiosity as I ob- 
served several husky young 
men append themselves to 
the end of the "closed" 
line. Further investigation 
revealed that the line was 
open only to athletic team 
members (or, to use the 
technical term, "jocks"). 

Outraged, as any steak 
and eggs enthusiast would be, 
I finished my meal and went 
back to my room to vent 
my anger by incinerating a 
pipe-full of good tobacco. 

it tonka good three min- 
utes to walk back to my 
room, and I can't stay angry 
about anything for more than 
two minutes. 

My anger has burned off, 
but my curiosity has not. 
Several questions remain to 
be answered. For instance: 
I.) Who paid for those 
steaks? I don't know the an- 
swer, but I'll lake a guess. I 
guess that I, and other stu- 
dents, paid for them, directly 
or indirectly. I subscribe to 
the Christian philosophy of, 
"If your neighbor asks for 
your ground chuck, give him 
also your steak." (The exact 
reference escapes me at the

only too happy to sacrifice 
my steak to some growing 

Dear Editor, 

Fellow cafeteria diners, 
does the thought of rising 
late on a sunny California 
Saturday morning and break- 
fasting on steak and eggs 
stimulate your salivary glands? 

boy. Still, I'd have a lot 
warmer feeling inside if some- 
one would tell me... 

2.) What apparent good 
did this sacrificial offering by 
the students accomplish? 
Well, folks, the team lost. I'm 
no medical authority, but I 
might hazard a guess that 
over-eating may have done 
them in. Something about 
liberal helpings of toast and , 
potatoes must bring out the 
ravenous beast in the lads. I 
watched one devour enough 
to amply stock a Safeway.

Dept.: CLC may soon have 
its own blimp to cover the 
games; not to mention a 
goodly portion of a bleach- 

1 honestly hope our sacri- 
fice accomplished something; 
I'm sure the opposition is 
most grateful. 

3.) Will we be expected 
to continue our sacrificing? 
My friends, I give you my 
modest proposal: 

Let's feed everyone steak 
and eggs on Saturday. Not 
just the team, but their loyal 
friends as well! Just think of 
all the people who use their 
leisure time in sleeping late 
on Saturday morning, there- 
by leaving no time to attend 
the games. I say, "Rouse 
them with steak and eggs." 


Granted the team will still 
lose. However, I doubt that, 
after breakfasting on a sump- 
tious meal of steak and eggs, 
anyone will feel up to com- 
plaining about blowing a 
football game.

Bulldogs bark up wrong tree 

CLC defeats Redlands 27-3 

By Brad Reed 

From the moment the Kingsmen broke through the ws'l on 
the East end of Mt. Clef stadium to the final gun there was 
no doubt which team on the field was the best. Showing an of- 
fensive punch that seemed to be lacking in last week's contest 
with UC DaWs the Kingsmen rolled up 360 yards total offense 
on their firs: series and started to march but were stalled by 
numerous penalties which kept them out of the end zone in 
the first quarter. They did show their ability to come up with 
the big play on their first drive when, with 3rd and 28 from 
their own 26 yard, quarterback John Kindred found split 
end Mike Hagen over the middle for a thirty yard gain and a 
first down. 

From then on both teams played head to head until early 
in the second quarter when the Bulldogs' Brian DeRoo punted 
to the Kingsmen's return man Steve Bogan. Bogan took the 
ball, side stepped one man and broke up the sidelines follow- 
ing some great blocks by his teammates. It finally took 4 
Bulldogs to haul him down, but not before he reached the 38 
yard line. From there the ignited offense marched into the 
end zone with Kindred scoring the TD on a 10 yard keeper 
around the right end. They added a 2 point conversion for an 
8-0 lead. 

CLC goalkeeper makes one of many saves against CSUN 

By Ten Slothower 

Saturday's game at home 
began with excitement and 
hope for another win, this 
time against Cal State Univer- 
sity at Northridge. 

A few minor injuries on 
both teams slowed the first 
half of the game down, yet 
the players continued their 
efforts to score. Scott Roth- 
man, with assistance from 
Tom Bard and Scot Barker, 
was the first to score on 
Northridge. Soon after the 
goal was made disturbances 
came from the sidelines. The 
coach for Northridge first 
received a warning for per- 
sonally directing criticism 
and yelling remarks at the 
referee. When the word of 
the caution was not fol- 

lowed, the referee then asked 
the coach to leave the pre- 
mises before the game would 
continue. The incident didn't 
seem to hinder Northridge 
and by the end of the first 
half the score was tied 1 to 
1. In the second half CLC 
put up a good defense, the 
team later acknowledging 
Tom Kirkpatrick and Eric 
Hellsten for their hard work. 
Moy Serrano, as goalie, also 
exibited fine defensive ability. 
Despite their defensive 
efforts Northridge scored 
two more goals, making the 
final score 1 to 3.

Coach Green remarked was who finished eighth in "S?' 

the best m the school's sixth race and Don n * e 

history. UC Irvine won th» u,h„ t?»?u , . Uon D avies. 

The Bulldogs did manage to put three points on the board 
(the only ones given up by the CLC defense) with 9:14 left in 
the first half, but the Lu came right back with a scoring march 
of their own. Freshman Kenny Bowers, on his first varsity 
carry, took it in for the second Kingsmen score and Brad 
Hoffman kicked the PAT for a 15 - 3 lead. 

Kevin Leslie intercepted a pass by Brown on the next 
series and it looked like the Lu would tack another score up 
before halftime, but the Redlands defense took the ball right 
back with an interception of their own and proceeded to run 
the clock out. 

The second half was dominated by the defense of the 
Kingsmen led by Dan Buckley(defensive player of the week), 
Leslie, Craig Fulladosa and Sid Grant. 

The Kingsmen offense also continued to roll, led on the 
ground by the running of Al Staie who was a questionable 
starter and ended up averaging an amazing 6.1 yards per carry. 
Kindred was also successful through the air hitting on 1 1 of 16 
pass attempts for 187 yards and two touchdowns. Harry 
Hedrick led the receivers with four catches for 89 yards. 
Hagen also had an outstanding day with tour catches, two 
going for CLC touchdowns. 

When asked who was the 
most outstanding for the 
evening, Coach Trego an- 
swered, "In volleyball, the 
emphasis is on team play 
and all the girls came through 
in flying colors!" 

...and then 


By Brad Reed 

The Regals dropped a close 
match to LaVerne College last 
Tuesday night. 

The girls lost the first two 
games 11-15 and 9-15 as La- 
Verne came out sharp and 
showed fine passing and set- 
ting ability. Then in the third 
game the Lu pulled together 
and came out on top 15-10. 
Then the two teams battled 
in the fourth game as CLC 
fought to even the match and 
force it to the five game 
limit. The lead changed hands 
violently and often until fi- 
nally the Regals succumbed 
and La Verne won 15-13. 

The team shows improve- 
ment every match and Coach 
Trego said she felt her team 
was the better of the two al- 
though La Verne does have 
some fine players. The Regals 
experimented with a new of- 
fense the first two games 
which may have led to a lit- 
tle confusion. But the girls 
regrouped and looked great 
in the third and fourth games 
coming up just short of vic- 


wins one... 

By Tom Perez 

In their second match of 
the year, the Women's volley- 
ball team met Point Loma in 
the Gym/Auditorium last 
week in a best of five series. 
The Regals took the match 
in four, losing the second 
game. "The team was not 
ready for the transition of 
new substitutes in the second 
game," said Coach Trego, 
who took the blame for the 
loss of that game. 

The volleyballers played a 
solid game. With few mental 
errors and consistent hits, 
the women's games went like 
this: 15-11, 14-16, 15-12, 
and 15-7. It was plain to see 
that CLC wore Point Loma 
out with hard driving spikes 
from Sandi Enriquez, Irene 
Hull, Holly Jaacks, Carol 
Lobitz, and Debbie Schulze. 
Diana Janke was classic with 
her serving, along with Ms. 
Enriquez, Ms. Lobitz, and 
Ms. Schulze. Diving in there 

Special recognition should go to the offensive line who 
blew open enough holes in the Redlands defense for the 
Kingsmen to amass I76 yards rushing. The total would have 
been much higher if not for two big losses on quarterback 
sacks. Mike McColgen did a great job in only his first full 
week at center after switching from tackle and guard "Potsy" 
Weber had another fine game. Punter Kent Puis should also 
be credited for keeping the Bulldogs deep in their own terri- 
tory averaging over 43 yards on 4 punts.

Scot Rothman, a fresh- 
man from Claremont High, 
has earned the honor as this 
weeks Athlete of the Week. 
Scot, the starting center for- 
ward on Cal Lutheran's soc- 
ter team, tallied ihree goats 
in the team's last two games. 
He scored the lone CLC goal 
in last Saturday's 3 - 1 loss 
to Cal State Northridge and 
followed it with two more 
in Tuesday's game against 
Southern California College 
which the Kingsmen won by 
the score of 3 - 2. 

Scoring a goal a game for 
an entire season in soccer 
would be on a par with bat- 
ting .500 in the major 

His greatest assets would 
be his outstanding quickness 
and speed in combination 
with a strong right-footed 
kick that lets loose shots in 
the blink of an eye. 

Add to these natural skills 
his unselfish team play and 
an unerring sense of where 
to be on the field and you 
come up with a soccer player

The city wants to build

"n be connected via Olsen 
Road directly to Lynn Road 
down to "The Oaks", the 
mammoth new shopping cen- 
ter due to open in March, 

1978. It also feels a quicker 
access for northern T.O. 
dwellers to the Ventura 
Freeway and on to Ven- 
tura would be created. 

To the college, about to 
embark on building the $3.6 
million dollar Learning Re- 
source Center, the develop- 
ment of Olsen Road imposes 
certain responsibilities. The 
city, treating CLC as it 
would any developer, expects 
the college to help pay for 
curbing, lighting and other 
costs. Dean Buchanan esti- 
mates the preliminary costs 
for this approach to be 
$250,000, an amount the 
city is requiring that CLC 
put up in a savings account 
assigned to the city. The 
city's approval of the 
Learning Resource Center 
stipulates this be done before 
construction can begin on 
that structure. 

The ultimate obligation of 
the college to the city for 
the construction of Olsen 
Road could exceed $800,000 
because when CLC develops 
its northern property it must 

finance two additional lanes 
and must pay for a stoplight 
system where Campus Drive 
will intersect Olsen Road. 
The cost for the stoplight 
system will run from $60 to 

To minimize the problem 
of noise, pollution, and traf- 
fic the completed Olsen 
Road would cause, the col- 
lege is currently considering 
depressing the roadway. The 
added cost however, include 
approximately $62,000 for 
grading, and $33,000 for 
landscaping the resulting 
slopes and $27,000 to fence 
both sides of the road with 
wrought iron fencing as the 
city would require. Finally, 
a pedestrian bridge would 
cost $95,000. 

Dean Buchanan does not 
want to see the roadway 
built in the spring or sum- 
mer because of the high use 
by students for spring sports 
and then the Dallas Cow- 
boys during the summer. 
He would like to delay con- 
struction until October.

Final figures released by 
the Registrar's Office at 
California Lutheran College 
this week reveal the largest 
group of new students the 
college has enrolled in years. 

New freshmen and transfer 
srudents total 430 compared 
to 399 in 1976, and 420 in 
1975, according to Registrar 
Allen Scott. 

Undergraduate enrollment 
totals 1147 with 84 students 
enrolled in the fifth year 
program for a combined total 
of 1231 students. 

"This year's total enroll- 
ment is only slightly over 
that of last year," Scott 
stated, noting that in 1976, 
undergraduates numbered 
1150 and fifth year students 
76, for a combined total 
of 1226. 

The breakdown by classes 
is as follows: Seniors, 239; 
Juniors, 260; Sophomores. 
273; Freshmen, 348, and 
special students, 27. Women 
outnumber men slightly with 
582 in the undergraduate 
total and men, 565.

Chivalry shall reign

"In the Days of Knights and Ladies" will be the theme of 
CLC's 1977 Homecoming week beginning October 22. Co- 
chairpersons, Holly Beilman and Lori Treloar. sophomores, 
have been organizing this annual event since April when 
former ASCLC President, Brian Webber, asked them -to take 

At least four new activities and events will surprise many 
CLC students and alumni. One of the new happenings will be 
a parade (to which all are welcome to enlist) treading the 
ground on October 29. It will be comprised of floats, kazoo 
bands, etc. The committee hopes to spark some interest and 
involvement from dorms, clubs or other organizations in this 

In addition, Treloar and Bielman are working on a tennis 
pro exhibition and daily dinner time activities. Also this year, 
a perpetual crown was purchased so that the same crown will 
be bestowed each year on a new Homecoming Queen. The 
coronation program will be presented October 28 by College 
President, Mark A. Mathews and the queen will be crowned 
that same evening by ASCLC President, Craig Kinzer. 

This year, the CLC football team will play USIU from 
San Diego for the Homecoming Game on October 29 begin- 
ning at 2:00 p.m. Last year the Ktngsmen beat the Westerners 
with a score of 28-14.

this recommendation, secon- 
ded, and passed by the 

When Brousseau was in- 
formed of the action, he was 
still not satisfied with the 
decision. The issue was again 
raised at Senate last Sunday. 
Brousseau is now supposed 
to meet with the Finance 
Committee to develop a 
recommendation satisfactory 
to both parties. 

When asked why the Fi- 
nance Committee considered 
the 25% commission only for 
funds over $1000, Howie 
outlined the three main 
points that the Finance Com- 
mittee considered: 

(1) The Advertising Manager 
should be paid a commission 
similar in amount to the oth- 
er Student Publications hon- 

(2) The first $1000 should be 
relatively easy to acquire 
through renewed advertise- 
ments, and 

(3) There would be a greater 
incentive to clear the $1000 
mark to get to the 25% 

Howie stated that, in this 
consideration, "we were 
under the assumption that 

there would be one person 
getting the commission for 
the advertising as has been 
done in the past." On the 
use of the main advertising 
fund, he said that "the 
Student Publications Commi- 
sioner is to come to the Sen- 
ate with his proposal for the 
use of those funds. The 
Senate, at that time, will 
either approve of those 
expenditures or they will 
send them back to the 
Student Publications for a- 
nother proposal." 

ASCLC President Craig 
Kinzer believes that "the 
funds should be utilized by 
Student Publications alone 
without any question. The 
ECHO should benefit from 
the advertising. ...The only 
exception would be if they 
wanted to use part of it 
for the KAIROS or the 

I feel that the ECHO knows 
best what to do with the 

Brousseau disagrees with 
the Finance Committee's o- 
pjnion that the position of 
Advertising Manager should 
be, according to Howie, an 
"honorarium type of job." 
Brousseau said, " I see the 
(ASCLC) Secretary getting 
paid substantially more than 
the elected officers.. ..I'd 
like to see the Advertising 
Manager as a part time 

This week Brousseau and 
the Finance Committee, with 
its newly elected member, 
Julie Howie, will meet to 
develop a new recommenda- 
tion for the Senate con- 
cerning the fate of the ECHO 
advertising money.

Organization, fair 
spotlight clubs 

By Jane Lee 

Public relations is a large 
part of John Whitney's job as 
CLC commuter coordinator. 
The position also requires 
organization and a lot of 
hard work. Whitney, a com- 
muting geology major and 
former campus resident, 
knows the problems that 
come with living off campus. 

"1 am not a social direc- 
tor," Whitney remarked when 
asked about his responsibili- 
ties. "My main job is to 
keep commuters informed." 

Whitney is in charge of the 
off-campus mailing list. 
Announcements and activity 
calendars are sent out bi- 

Whitney, hired last spring, 
is working under the direc- 
tion of Mr. Don Hossler, 
Director of Campus Activi- 
ties. Working with individual 
problems seems to be a large 
part of Whitney's work. He 
is currently working on a car 
poofs for those who live out 
of Thousand Oaks. "We have 
students from as far away as 
Santa Paula and Woodland 
Hills," announced Whitney. 

Whitney likes working 

.nh people and spends 
great deal of time getting to 
know non-residents and 
keeping them informed 
about CLC happenings. "If 
they know there is some- 
one they can go to with ques- 
tions, they won't feel left 
out," added Whitney

If on September 29 you 
happened to pass a series 
of tables at the top of the 
cafeteria, on your way to 
dinner, you missed the Or- 
ganization Fair sponsored by 
the Junior class. 

"The idea of the fair was 
to acquaint students, especi- 
ally freshim-n, with the many 
clubs on campus," said Steve 
Bogan, Junior class president. 

eral arts college means an all 
around education. A big part 
of that is being with other 
people outside the class- 

In an attempt to give off- 
campus students envolve- 
ment, John Whitney is estab- 
lishing a commuter club, 
Interested indivuduals will be 
able to get together for infor- 
mal social events. A 24 hour 
commuter hot-line is avail- 
able for those interested in 
obtaining information about 
campus activities. The hot- 
line number is 492-1102. 

All commuters who have 
not filed their names and 
addresses with the campus 
activities office should do 
so. If you have any sugges- 
tions concerning the com- 
muter club or any problems 
please call John Whitney at 

Bogan went on saying the 
plan was that the clubs 
would have had tables set up 
between 5:00 and 6:30 p.m. 
all along the top of the cafe- 
teria. That way, students 
passing by could get an idea 
of what there is to offer at 
CLC in the way of clubs 
Out of the near 16 clubs 
on campus, only 5 clubs sel 
up tables. Despite this, Bogan 
was not dissappointed.

Words from the 

Orient Express 

Dear Mark (Mathews) and friends, U Sept 21 1977 

Time has passed faster than usual and I'm now a' two- 
week veteran of Tokyo. That means that I not only have 
mastery of the public transportation system but also that 
I m used to seeing cars driving on the left-hand side of the 
road-a bit reckless at that. Hello from the East! 

Tokyo has its share of Lutheran missionaries so I've been 
well watched over and cared for since I've arrived. The brass 
riere at the Japanese Lutheran Missionaries Association deci- 
ded to house me in the dormitory of the Lutheran Seminary 
here. It suits me fine, as I don't have to cook my meals or 
keep an apartment clean. While staying here, I'm spending 
three hours a day learning Japanese, a few more studying, 
and the rest wandering around and reading. Just commuting 
takes up a couple hours a day. In fact, to get anywhere in 
Tokyo takes an hour. 

Since a usual subject of any letter is the weather, I won't 
let you down. In the last two weeks, two typhoons have 
diverted from hitting Tokyo, but not without dumping rain. 
It's peaceful to listen to, unless you have to walk in it. I 
think my pants are still drying out. 

Part of my responsibilities here include being involved in 
the worship and affairs of a Japanese congregation. The mem- 
bership in my church is about 40-50, which is very normal 
for Japan. I believe that such numbers provide for more 
fellowship and better ministry, although I wouldn't advocate 
breaking up the CLC congregation into smaller groups. Next 
week I'll be in charge of an English Bible study class, which 
is the only thing I'm capable of handling now. The students 
will be high school age. The class is an example of one of those 
things that one steps into without knowing much about, so 
it will probably be awhile before I come up with a suitable 

Adjusting to Japanese life has not been too much of a 
problem, nor should it be when one has a sense of humor. 
A dormmate offered me some juicy prepared insects to eat 
the other day. After a little internal struggling, I found one 
to taste "not bad." The trick is to pretend you're eating pop-

"On the Air" 

By Patti Behn 

On any evening of the week at CLC, you can turn your ra- 
dio on and tune in 101 .5 on your FM dial to CLC's own radio 
station KRCL. KRCL broadcasts seven days a week from its 
studios in the Mount Clef dorm foyer. 

"KRCL is an extremely unique radio station for two rea- 
sons," says program director Gordon Lemke. "We operate on 
Storer Cable T.V. lines so we don't broadcast over the air 
waves. "For this reason," says Lemke, "we aren't under FCC 
licensing and regulations, even though we do run our program- 
ming as though we were." Few other colleges have the oppor- 
tunities and flexibility that broadcasting on cable brings to 

KRCL is also unique in that it offers a wide variety of pro- 
gramming, as Lemke says, "from Henry Mancini to soft rock 
to Top 40." Most other commercial and college stations offer 
exclusively one kind of programming-not so with KRCL. 

KRCL, is trying to cover the whole spectrum of interest at 
CLC. Says Dave Watson, station manager, "We're trying to 
run a radio station that hits everybody; emphasizing many in- 
terests instead of just playing rock and roll music from 6-12 
every night. We're disappointed there hasn't been any input 
from the ASCLC because we feel we have a lot to offer as far 
as a communication opportunity for them goes." 

Says Watson, "We also feel that through our expanded pub- 
lic service announcement program, we can make a large contri- 
bution to community service in the Conejo Valley." 

KRCL's main purpose, though according to Lemke is to 
"provide an educational experience for the people involved 
with putting it on the air. Not only education as far as voca- 
tional skills," says Lemke, "but also staff learning how to ad 
lib or handle themselves in emergency situations. It's educa- 
tion in its broadest sense." 

—101.5 FM— 

KRCL's top management consists of Gordon Lemke, pro- 
gram director; Cindy Saylor, receptionist; Maia Siewertsen, 
traffic and contunuity, music & news director; Kevin Thomp- 
son, chief engineer; Dave Watson, station manager; and Carol 
Willis, production engineer. Don Haskell also acts as a kind of 
faculty advisor in his role as Director of Broadcasting to the 
station, but the station is basically student-run. 

KRCL is also encouraging listener participation, by inviting 
students to bring down their own albums to the station. "All 
the D.J.'s will welcome songs listeners want on the air," says 
Lemke. "So bring your albums on down and hear them 
played on KRCL!" 

In review— "Yes!" 

Christian University, one of the only liberal arts institutions 
around, and certainly one of the most beautiful campuses. 
Since things are so crowded around here, hardly anyone 
gets any breathing space. ICU boasts plenty of lawn space, 
which is usually taken up by lounging, karate-practicing, 
and frisbee-throwing students. 

Tonight is the night for my oforo, or Japanese bath. It 
involves a process similar to taking a Jacuzzi, and is just as 

Give my best to all those working hard at Cal Lu. My 
thoughts and prayers are with you.

The lights faded, and the 
excitement mounted as the 
audience at Long Beach A- 
rena last Monday night anti- 
cipated the long-awaited re- 
turn of Rick Wakeman with 
Yes. Wakeman suprised the 
audience by not playing any 
solos or excerpts from his 
albums. Rather, like the 
rest of the musicians, he re- 
mained a part of the whole 
band. Perhaps some people 
were disappointed that there 
were no solos, but it is im- 
possible to see how anyone 
could have been disappointed 
with the band's performance. 

Their selection included 
all the songs from their latest 
ONE, plus many of their 
classic songs such as "Close 
to the Edge", "And You and 
I", "All Good People", and 
"Siberian Khatru". Their 
thirty minute encore consis- 
ted of "Starship Trooper", 
and, of course, "Rounda- 

What is especially stun- 
ning about Yes is their skill 
and cohesiveness as a band. 
They play so flawlessly, it 
appears effortless. With 
Wakeman's many synthesi- 
zers, at times the five-man 
group appears to be an entire 
orchestra. Yes' music is one 
of the most complex styles in 
rock- certainly they are in a 
class by themselves. 

The opening act, Dono- 
van, was surprisingly disap- 
pointing as he failed to play 
any of his old sixties classics 
such as "Catch the Wind", 
"Colours", or "Lalena". In- 
stead he played rock versions 
of his less well-known songs 
and basically tried to pro- 
mote his new album which 
no-one had heard or really 
cared to hear. 

Yes appeared Friday and 
Saturday night at the Forum, 
Sunday night at the San 
Diego Sports Arena, and con- 
cluded its southern Californ- 
ia tour Monday night at the 
Long Beach Arena.

With each new year, CLC 
welcomes new faculty and 
staff members into the col- 
lege family and community. 
This year, a special greeting 
is addressed to the new Head 
Resident of Pederson Hall 
and the Benson, Mattson, 
and French Houses, Miss Su- 
san Warner. 

A Westcoast native, she 
was raised in Pasadena and 
attended Westmont, gradua- 
ting with a B.A. in English 
Literature. She continued 
on the educational path to 
earn her Masters in Student 
Development at Azusa Paci- 
fic College. Highlighting those 
years, she took part in an a- 
broad program to England 
and travelled to San Francis- 
co with an Urban Internship 

She was working as an A- 
cademic Counselor at Glen- 
daleCommunity College when gp 
she heard about the opening 
at CLC for a full- I 
time residence counselor. I 
After much consultation | 
with friends and family she 
applied for the position and 
was accepted. 

In addition to all of her 
responsibilities as Head Res- 
ident, she works with Sheri 
Richards at the Learning As- 
sistance Center and she is en- 
rolled as a part-time student 
.in Yoga and Political Science. 
Quite an active person, 
she hopes to find time to get 
back to the backpacking trail 
this year after completing a 
two week trip in the Sierras 
this summer with her boy- 

Ahhh... is that the look of 
love glittering in her eyes? 
Could be, but marriage 
doesn't hold a place in the 
near future for her. "It's imp- 
tant to me to establish my 
career," says Susan, "I need 
for work and play " 

Van of that work means 
instigating dorm spirit and in- 
volvement. One of her ideas 
is to get involved in dorm 
competitions. In addition she 
is interested in starting Bible 
studies on the dorm level. 

Miss Warner expressed a 
certain disappointment about 
the crowded rooming situa- 
tion this semester. "People 
seem to be handling the sit- 
uations well, though," she 

adds. The co-ed rooming situ- 
ation this year seems to 
please Susan. "I'm glad about 
the healthy environment 
though it is more stress for 
the R.A.s" Concerning the 
relationship with her staff, 
she hopes they will continue 
to grow into very supportive 

Her new position has 
"been a really positive exper- 
ience for the most part. I'm 
excited about what the year's 
going to do, but I'm humble 
about my own abilities and 
the responsibility that I 
have." She seems anxious a- 
bout getting involved in oth- 
er campus activities though 
she chooses not to overex- 
tend herself. "I want to do 
what I do well." And that 
she is.

A.W.S. starts with a flair 

By Karen Coppage 

The Associated Women 
Students, or AWS, is an or- 
ganization on campusin which 
each women student automat- 
ically becomes a member. 
This organization is present 
on campuses all over the U- 
nited States. 

Kay Lehenbauer, the 
AWS president, commented 
that this year the main func- 
tion will be "getting women 
involved in fun activities, 
such as co-sponsoring Dodger 
Night with AMS." The Lucia 
Bride Celebration and the Sa- 
die Hawkins Dance, two acti- 
vities that have been popular 
in the past are also on the a- 

Another service sponsored 
by the AWS is Big-Little Sis. 
During the spring, female stu- 
dents of CLC sign up for a 
"little sis". This is an incom- 
ing freshman girl that they 
write to during the summer 
and welcome to the college. 
Big-Little Sis was originally 
created to give freshmen girls 

some one to talk to about 
any problems they may en- 
counter. It's turned out to be 
a great way to make friends 
and to have fun. 

On September 29, the 
AWS sponsored a Big-Little 
Sis Tea. Centered around an 
oriental theme with tea and 
fortune cookies, it offered a 
chance for big and little sis- 
ters to get together and have 
fun. Entertainment for the 
tea consisted of several mime 
skits performed by one of 
CLC's own, Gail Hund. 

This week is Secret Sis 
Week. Everyone who signs up 
enjoys pranks played on 
them, and in turn gets to 
play tricks on their own Se- 
cret Sis. An added demension

A quiet manner and gen- 
tle humility light up the cou- 
ntenance of Mary Stein, re- 
cent graduate of CLC, as she 
speaks of the challenges she 
faces daily in her new capa- 
city as Assistant to College 
Pastor, Gerry Swanson. Ms. 
Stein views her past and pre- 
sent at CLC as preparation 
to eventually teach and coun- 
sel in the mission field. 

Ms. Stein is the second to 
hold the position of Assis- 
tant. Barbara Bornemann va- 
cated it to enter seminary in 
spring of 1977. Ms. Stein was 
Departmental Assistant in 
charge of chapel last year and 
sought to enter the mission 
field with the ALC, only to 
find that no calls were being 
extended to single women 
that year. 

At Pastor Swanson's req- 
uest she applied for Ms. Bor- 
nemann's position. "I didn't 
expect to get it though," 
mused Ms. Stein. "On April 1 
Pastor Swanson told me, 

'You got the job, Mary.' I 
thought it was an April 
Fool's joke," Ms. Stein chu- 
ckled. Since then she has 
come to believe that CLC is 
where she is called to be, at 

least for a time. "I'm seek- 
ing to know why I'm here 
and what I can do to serve,"

Stein left CLC for a term 
to work in the office of a 
school district and as a volun-

The Benson House, across 
from the new tennis courts, 
is a unique type of on-cam- 
pus housing. To qualify for 
the house, you must have at 
least eleven girls with a com- 
mon theme. 

This year, the girls have 
chosen a physical fitness 
theme. On September I9th, 
an Open House was given, 
open to anyone interested. 
Nutritional snacks and diet 
protein shakes were served 
along with their nutritional 
value. All around the house 
signs were posted with calor- 
ie information and fun exer- 
cises, for instance... did you 
know that one PASSION- 
ATE kiss burns up 50 calor- 
ies? For those of you who 
hate diets, I think that's one 
you won't mind. Others in- 
cluded different ways to a- 
chieve physical fitness by cal- 
esthetics, yoga and nutrition. 

Once a week, the house 
has meetings, usually led by 
a different girl each time, to 
discuss and present one as- 
pect of achieving fitness. Yo- 
ga, swimming and team 
sports such as volleyball and 
football games are among 
some of their main interests. 

One resident of Benson 
House, Stacia Lothian, feels 
"the theme has been good 
for me, it makes me feel 
good to know that I'm not 
abusing my body." 

Frank Montana, Benson's 
faculty advisor, will be start- 
ing a jogging class for credit 
open to anyone who wishes 
to participate, every morn- 
ing at seven a.m. 

Caroline Sjostedt, anoth- 
er resident and also life guard 
at the CLC pool, stated "This 
is the best time to start shap- 
ing a fitness program for 
yourself, before it's too late." 


By Kathy Hitchcox. 

Jules Feiffer holds a unique position in society today. 
HORIZON magazine wrote as a cartoonist, writer, and play- 
wright "Feiffer is at war with the dullness of carefully pro- 
tected minds." Feiffer's weapon against this ignorance? 
None other than a pen, paper, and a deep conviction to show 
people "how not to talk to each other." 

Last Thursday evening in the CLC gym, Feiffer spoke to 
students about how language is used as a code. For example, 
he described the public voice as opposed to the private voice. 
In most lectures he observed that the voice is impressive, 
knowing, informed, in-charge, expert, and unrelaxed. In 
ntlipr words. "You don't order coffee with vour public voice." 

In order to really understand what's being said, Feiffer 
explained you must examine the sound and substance behind 
voices. There are sounds we make when we don't mean what 
we say, the opposite of what we say, or an alternate meaning 
to what we say. Accordingly, Feiffer pointed out, "Entire 
lives can be spent telling each other what we don't mean." 

ask "hello, hov. 


For instance, a person can 
really mean "I don't care!" 

Feiffer attributed coded language to the exile mentality 
of people today. This is merely the attitude that everyone's 
out to get us. Talking in code is a means of self-protection, 
which Feiffer attempts to illustrate in his new novel. Ackroyd. 

Ackroyd is about a writer who lives by the code of com- 
munication. He professes to admire his wife, but really 
holds her in contempt, professes to adore his son, but keeps 
him at a distance, and professes to trust his friends when he's 
really very suspicious of them all. In the course of the story, 
he hires a private detective to find evidence about who's con- 
spiring against him. At the same time, the writer never tells 
the truth unless he can help it and is a master of charm, wit 
and irony. The reader must distinguish between truth and de- 
ception by decoding the language. 

Hysteria, withdrawal, and nuttiness of today's society is 
seen by Feiffer to result from this confusing language code of 
truth and deception. "We don't want what we say to be under- 
stood," he pointed out. 

One of the outlets people have to express their discontent 
is the political cartoon. "Whether on the comic or editorial 
page, every cartoon is political " expressed Feiffer. He added 
that these cartoons aid in helping form social stereo-types 
and insititutional ones. 

The form of a political cartoon is blatant, unkind, designed 
to enlighten no one, amusing, using no facts of figures, assumes 
one-side to every question, is bullying, and intimidating. "You 
wouldn't want a political cartoon as a next-door neighbor," 
Feiffer emphasized, "It would be like living next to Idi 
Amin." He continued to explain that the cartoons were most 
effective when the artist had reached a state of utter hatred. 

Twenty years ago, feiffer never intended in getting into 
politics. As time progressed, however, he discovered, "Dis- 
guises have their connections with politics in psychological and 
behavioral changes." As a result Feiffer began examining the 











Solution to last week's puzzle 

V Photo Paul Bi 

"I'm very unhappy doing the presidents unless something 
happens which makes me know him and what's in him that may 
be in myself," conceded Feiffer. During the past twenty years 
he's seen Eisenhower as somewhat vague, Kennedy as slick, 
Johnson as violent, Nixon as insecure and cynical, and Ford as 
good-natured and inconsequential. 

Feiffer admitted that perhaps his strongest cartoon con- 
cerned the issue of Vietnam In the cartoon, he examined 
Nixon's statement that Vietnam was necessary so that future 
generations wouldn't have to go to war. He illustrated a little 
kid watching TV with Kennedy beginning the Nixon quote, 
next an older boy watching LBl continue it, next a young Gl 
watching Nixon complete it and finally a pine box. 

In conclusion, Feiffer said that the answer to the complex- 
ity of the code problem was to decode the code. "I assume I'm 
saying what I mean, I don't know," he reflected. However, 
Feiffer showed in one of his cartoons about Bernard that the 
situation wasn't hopeless, -i i jve in a shell that's inside a wall 
that's inside a tunnel, that's under the sea, but if you really 
love me -you'd find me 1 "

Alcohol policy 

By Eric Haugrud 

"To provide the intellectual, spiritual, moral and cultural 
environment where Christian scholars may nurture the talents 
and develop the character of their students and guide them to 
lives of more effective service to their fellowmen, motivated 
and enpowered by a love of Christ, truth and freedom." These 
are the words of the historic philosophy of California Lutheran 
College. They were composed to guide the educational ministry 
of this institute of higher learning. Accordingly, all educational 
policies must endeavor to fulfill the goals outlined in this philo- 

Letters to the Editor 

fhis is Part One of a 
t week's issue of the Echo. 

However, the CLC alcohol policy dismally fails to meet 
these goals. The alcohol regulations on campus condemn the 
possession or use of alcohol by any person on all college prop- 
erty. These rules place value judgements and threats of penal- 
ties on CLC students. This tends to produce alienation and 
rebellion. Thus, Cal Lutheran has stunted the opportunity of 
its students to develop their talents and character and to better 
their service to their fellowmen. Cal Lutheran must change its 
regulations to "neither condone nor condemn the possession 
or use of alcoholic beverages by those students 21 years of age 
and older." 

However, reasons have been stated in favor of the current 
regulations. One such reason is that CLC's on-campus residents 
should be protected from being offended or harmed by the 
presence of possible bad behavior of other residents who drink. 
Second, many members of the CLC community are concerned 
about the possible reduction of gifts to the college, since any 
lax in the CLC Prohibition might be seen by many to be a 
secular move in the CLC community. Thus, some donors 
might reduce or cut-off their gifts to CLC, shoulds such a 
policy change occur. Third, CLC's Attorneys at Law, Scott F. 
Dool, Inc., argue that any ease in the alcohol regulations 
would expose the college to "potential legal liability." 

First, on-campus residents can drink in their rooms without 
offending or harming other people. For example, I might de- 
sire to "mellow-out" on a Saturday night after hustling through 
a long, hard week of attending classes, studying and working 
25 hours. I might drink a couple or three glasses of a sparkling 
California white wine, play a recording of a colorful and deli- 
cate flute concerto by Vivaldi at a low volume, and relax 
comfortably in my bean bag chair, Meanwhile, two of my 
roommates might be studying in the back room (1 live in the 
front room), or they might be gone visiting friends or spend- 
ing the weekend with their families. Would I be posing any 
harm to my roommates? No! I have respected their rights by 
previously discussing our drinking habits, and I have received 
assurance that they will not be offended if I drink in the front 
room and keep the noise at a low level. Also, drinking in this 
manner would be of important therapeutic benefit to myself. 
1 would be much better prepared to face the usual busy week 
that lies ahead. Furthermore, the consumption of alcohol is 
not necessarily unChristlike. Jesus Himself turned water into 
wine at a marriage feast in Cana. Christ and His followers also 
used alcohol. Thus, the consumption of alcoholic beverages in 
CLC dormitory rooms is not necessarily harmful to other 
people or property-or myself either. 

The time is long overdue for Cal Lutheran resident staff 
members to not obstruct the rights of on-campus residents and 
visitors to consume alcoholic beverages in the privacy of their 
dormitory rooms. (Even though my proposed policy change 
would only affect those students 21 years of age and older, the 
resident staff members are not mandated by the State of Cali- 
fornia nor by Dean Kragthorpe to play "rent-a-cop" and "bust" 
students of any age for the mere use of alcohol. They can use 
their own discretion when a student drinks.) If a resident 
issues a complaint to the on-duty resident staff member that 
the noise level inside or outside the room is hindering their 
right to reside in peace, or if he or she is offended by the be- 
havior of an intoxicated resident outside the room, then the 
resident assistant or head resident should enforce the behavior 
of that intoxicated person--but not the drinking! In addition, 
this policy would encourage residents to respect all of the 
rights of other persons living on campus. 

Second, a large reduction in gifts to CLC asa result of reform- 
ing the regulations is questionable. Some people feel that a 
college policy of not condoning nor condemning the posses- 
sion or use of alcohol in dormitory rooms by those students 
21 years of age and older would be seen by some donors to be 
a secular move in the CLC community. 

Jacuzzi ? So what ! 

Dear Editor, 

As a CLC student, I would 
like to make a proposal to 
the Echo Staff. 

There seems to be a great 
deal of controversy this year 
concerning decisions made 
and projects planned by our 
elected ASCLC President, 
Craig Kinzer. Many opinions 
have been offered by the 
newspaper even this early in 
the year. But it appears to 
me that the arguments and o- 
pinions are clearly one-sided. 
It is good that the ECHO can 
be so verbose and firmly 
committed to one opinion 
but the students are uncon- 
sciously forming their opin- 
ions ignorantly. 

My suggestion is that the 
President, not just this year 
but always, have an inside 
hot-line to the students also, 
via the ECHO. 

The best way to improve 
communication (a hot item 
in the ASCLC campaign last 
year) between the govern- 
ment and the students is to 
let the President and the 

AS CLC have articles printed 
on J regular basis. 

I hope you consider my 
5U ,88estion valid and that you 
Wl " let students develop their 
°*n conclusions. 
Thank you, 
Cindy Saylor

Dear Editor, 

It is with interest that I 
note a few of your readers 
are concerned about such 
meaty subjects as the quan- 

tity and quality of the CLC 
football team's eating habits. 
Please allow me to un- 
scramble some misconcep- 
tions and add a few salty 
comments of my own 

1) All students may join 
the team; no one is cut. We 
still welcome new prospects. 

2) The players on board 
pay for their own meals. On 
the day of a game they miss 
one meal that they have paid 
for. If all CLC students wish 
to select two meals a day in- 
stead of three, I suspect the 
cafeteria could upgrade. The 
remaining meals for them, 

3) I noticed no lack of 
food in either line. Plenty of 
orange juice, toast, eggs, milk 
and meat were on display. 
Additional food was available 
a couple of hours later, too. 

4) The idea that overeat- 
ing caused a loss to the Uni- 
versity of California at Davis 
is faulty in two aspects. 
First, Davis ate the identical 
meal, served at the same time 
in our cafeteria, and 





we had the same menu be- 
fore beating the University of 

5) There is some indirect 
cost in that tuition does help 
support athletics at CLC, and 
to a lesser percentage foot- 
ball and football meals. For 
full-time students, not on 
financial aid {about 30%) the 
annual indirect cost for the 
meals of off-board athletes 
and staff is about 20 cents 
per student. 

If Mr. Schinnerer is still 
too agitated to digest his 
sausage and eggs, I will he 
happy to give him back his 
20 cents. 

Thank you for your cover- 
age of our team.

Dear Editor, 

Being born, raised and 
educated in French Canada, I 
followed with great interest 
Bill 101 currently proposed by 
the Parti Quebecois, the rul- 
ing political party in Quebec 
headed by Premier Rene 

While it is true that 
through the years the English 
Canadians have dominated 
the Frencli speaking people 
politically, culturally and 
economically, they have also 
unjustly discriminated and 
taken advantage of the French 
Canadians' heritage. 

Under Bill 101, a Canadian 
of French descent particu- 
larly the child, will be pro- 
hibited from attending an 
English speaking school while 
the English Canadian child 
must have at least one parent 
who has studied in an English 
school before he can be in- 
structed in the English lan- 
guage. This means that a 
family transferring to the 
Province of Quebec from an- 
other province must send 
their children to French 
speaking schools despite their 
having attended only English 
schools all their lives. 

It is this writer's opinion 
that the Parti Quebecois is 
attempting to destroy one of 
the cherished freedoms in a 
democracy which is the vol- 
untary choice of education.

If any average student had 
suggested or mentioned ac- 
quiring a Jacuzzi for CLC 
his or her friends would all 

have a good laugh and then 
gone for a pizza, but when 
the ASCLC president sug- 
gests or mentions the pos- 

sibilities of a Jacuzzi, the. 
campus immediately takes 
one side or the other. Now, 
the question is, what more 

can the ASCLC president 
do about attaining a 
Jacuzzi than say, ECHO 
Editor-in-Chief Tom 

Kirkpatrick, or any other 
Joe or Jane on this campus? 
The president can bring up 
the idea at Senate and sup- 

port it, maybe he can even 
suggest it to a high ranking 
administrator. But as 1 re- 

call , Senate meetings are 
open to everyone, and there 
is nothing stopping people 
from attending and express- 

ing their suggestions: and 
"high ranking" administra- 
tors are easy to come by, 
and not so difficult to rub 
noses with. 

So what is the big fuss? 
If the Students want a Ja- 
cuzzi, let's get a student 
coalition formed and present 

our views to the men and 
women with the checkbooks 
rather than waste our time 
tredding on the toes of a 
ceremonial prince.

Hoffman boots 
CLCto victory 

Having proved they can win on the road by systematically 
booting the Claremont-Mudd stags 37-13, the California Luth- 
eran College football team travels to Eagle Rock Saturday 
night for a date with the Occidental Tigers. 

Needing a win to stay in the NAlA's Top 10, the Kingsmen 
must contain a dynamic offensive-minded Oxy team. 

Coach Bill McQuery has worked wonders with the Occiden- 
tal program. Good depth, excellent skilled positions and a 
renewed spirit has brought a winning attitude and record. 

After a 5-3 mark in 1976, and a successful 2-1 beginning in 
1977, it is evident that the Oxy Tiger is no longer a pussycat. 
Oxy veteran QB Tom Hamilton has ample targets in District 
III Co-Player-of-the-Year and fellow senior Rick Fry, and 
swifties Tom Bond and Jim Dietle. Fry has 16 receptions in 
a single game already to his credit this season. 

The Kingsmen got their kicks in beating Claremont. Senior 
Brad Hoffman was five for five in field goals and tallied 18 
points. Eric Murphy dazzled the crowd with a brilliant 86 yard 
kick-off return to counter Claremont's go ahead touchdown in 
the first quarter. CLC went 21-7 by the end of the period and 
coasted home with their third win in four outings. 

Hoffman was selected as Miller Player of the game for his 
record-setting performance. The distances were 26, 23, 37, 
32 and 37 yards. " 

Freshman Ken Bowers tallied his second touchdown in just 
two quarters of varsity play by grabbing a 40 yard pass from 
back up quarterback Casey McLaughlin. 

Senior Rick Yancey put the only rushing tally on the score- 
board with a 15 yard jaunt. 

The Kingsmen played without four players and missed two 
starters but expect to be in top shape for Saturday's big game. 

Kick-off is 7:30 p.m.

you were sure to have been 
enthusiastically involved 

cheering for your favorite 
Intramural football team. 
The games ran from 3:30 
until 6:30, with scores as 

In the first set of games, 
Ray's Robots scored a 19-12 
victory over the James Gang. 

Foster's Brewers had to for- 
feit because they lacked fe- 
male players so Barnharts 
Bombers received the win. 
Vader's Raiders and Teddy's 
Bears battled to a tie of 0-0 
in the second set of games. 
Mnnnie's Moonies won from 
Mulleneaux Militia by a for- 
feit. Johnsen's Force took 
Whitney' Sudden Death with 
a shutout of 6-0. In the last 
set Cary's Coolies beat 

Mark's Munchies 28-6, the 
Mean Machine swept it clean 
with a 21-12 victory over The 
Dead End Kids, and finally, 
the Faculty Marauders took 
victory over The Crickets 

The games will continue 
for seven weeks, so start out 
the week-end right on Friday 
afternoon and go root for

Sluggish Kingsmen lose one to CPSLO 

By Tom Kirkpatrick 

A bright sunny day in San 
Luis Obispo with just a whis- 
per of a wind blowing across 
the field. The setting this 
past Saturday for the soccer 
game pitting the California 
Lutheran College Kingsmen 
against the Cal Poly Mus- 
tangs. A bright beginning 
but a game that would soon 
bring a cloud of disappoint- 
ment to the CLC team as 
they ended up on the short 
end of a 5-2 score. 

Perhaps sluggish from the 
long drive up or unused 
to the almost oppressive 
heat, the Kingsmen began 
slowly, letting their oppo- 
nents work their short pas- 
sing game to near perfec- 
tion. Taking advantage of 
this lazy start, Poly quickly 
put two quick shots in the 
net before the midpoint of 
the first half. 

Cal Lutheran, hurting in 
the midfield because of in- 
juries to halfbacks Kazewa 
Chenewa and Tom Bard, 
never mounted a real offen- 
sive thrust though occasion- 
ally managing to break loose

defense, the front line could

If you'll excuse the pun, 
Brad Hoffman was a "shoe- 
in" for this issue's athlete of 
the week. 

Brad's performance in the 
game last Saturday was not 
only a school record breaker, 
it was also what people say 
nobody is— perfect. He was 
five-for-five in the field goal 
department, and kicked two- 
out-of-two extra points. 

So the Echo Staff proud-

formance and we all wish 
him luck for the rest of this

midfield, the defense and the 
offense could never seem to 
coordinate their play. Then, 
down 2-0 late in the first 
half, Frank Acosta, with an 
excellent lead pass from 
Chuck Seeger down the right 
wing, turned on his quarter- 
miler speed and outraced 
the defense. As the goal- 
keeper moved out to cut off 

the shot, Acosta at a full run, 
placed a beautiful shot un-

stretched body of the goalie 
that just caught the inside 
of the left post and put the 
Kingsmen on the scoreboard. 

With new enthusiasm CLC 
fought Poly to a standstill for 
the rest of the half. 

The second half began 
much as the first ended, with 
the fired up visitors playing 
with intensity and desire. 
It all came to no avail as the 
purple and gold could not 
contain the powerful Mus- 
tang front line. Within the 
first twenty minutes of the 
second half Poly added two 
more goals. The first came 
on a penalty kick that was 
incurred by a handball 
within the penalty area. The 
second was set up by a ques- 

tionable penalty call that 
eventually led to Cal Poly's 
fourth goal of the game. 

Further demoralized, the 
fatigued Kingmen played as

Spring Festival planned 

The new Spring Festival will be a many faceted 
event, designed to involve the whole college 
community. The day may possibly include a 
work project and a concert, reminiscent of 
past events. , .-■.«..

; Although the event is not thoroughly 
planned out, ASCLC President Craig Kinzer 
and Vice President Dave Hagen have many 
ideas and expectations for the campaign issue 
concerning an event or "festival" to take 
place at CLC this spring. 

"One of the highest goals is to bring to- 
gether the administration, faculty, and stu- 
dents in a day of recreation as opposed to 
academia," said Kinzer in regard to the pur- 
pose for the activity. Hagen emphasized that 
the newly formed committee headed by 
Peter Crane is "very much open to ideas. We 
really do want to have input so that there will 
be a better choice of ideas." 

Some of the proposals suggest a work 
party to take place in the morning, a pic- 
nic in the park, and a concert later that 

Many proposals have been offered about 
the work party itself. Students could get 
involved in a general pool renovation (in- 
cluding fixing the sidewalk cracks and 
painting), constructing a walkway through 
some area of campus, or developing the area 
which may soon become "student body 
park" {across from the football field). Hagen 
responded, "It is student responsibility to 
make good use of the day to make it happen 
in years to come." 

Though neither Hagen or Kinzer put major 
emphasis on any one of the events, the concert 
seems to be the controversial topic on campus 
this year. The issue proposed by Kinzer and 
Hagen during the campaigns last year brought 

to light the possibility of a performance by a 
name band. With little more than $2500 in 
hand, this seemed improbable for the ASCLC. 
But Kinzer is not closed to the idea that "many 
artists might like to give a concert in a small 
college, Christian atmosphere." He suggests 
that there is "a chance, a small chance, but 
none the less, a possibility of a benefit con- 
cert." Another alternative would require the 
financial support of a promoter "who would 
take the risk of loss or profit." Kinzer also 
doesn't leave out the possibility of monetary 
support from alumni. "We would never get a 
band if we knew we couldn't afford it," 
added Kinzer. "We do not njan to take a risk." 
Kinzer explains his idea that it is "better to 
start at the top and work down than at the 
bottom and work up." 

The alternatives are endless according to 
the two officers. If a name band is not pos- 
sible, an attempt will be made to get another 
band or performance of some type. Hagen 
assures that "the certainty of the event is 
there. It is a possibility for a constructed day 
to relax." 

However, other concerns and expenses are 
involved. What about security, maintenance 
or parking space? 

These issues will be encountered and dealt 
with by the committee which is just getting 
off the ground. Kinzer adds, "The way the 
students take responsibility and reaction to 
events throughout the year will decide how 
far we can go with the concert." Hagen and 
Kinzer agree that this is "a completely new 
idea, perhaps to accomplish the goals of past 

Bam's days numbered AWS and Spur, may sever national tie.

Until recently, the ground- 
breaking date for the new 
Learning Resource CciiLer 
was set at November I, 1977. 
Now that date has been post- 
poned indefinitely, thereby 
granting a twelfth-hour re- 
preive to the Barn, CLC's 
student-operated coffee shop 

Since the date has been 
postponed, Lisa Everett, Di- 
rector of the Barn, is "90% 
sure" that the Barn will still 
exist through the end of this 
school year. Unfortunately, 
the Barn's present existence 
is in violation of a Thousand 
Oaks city ordinance that pro- 
hibits any barn-like structures 
with stalls. 

Within three months of the 
Learning Resource Center 
ground-breaking date, the 
Barn must be either moved 
or torn down. Currently, 
there are two options for the 
Barn - (1) move it to a new 
location, or (2) construct a 
completely new building. 

Everett did say that "there 
is a very strong possibility... 

that the Barn will be torn 
down at the end of this school 
year and not rejuvenated into 
any other kind of project." 

Money will be needed to 
move the Barn. However, "if 
the students can bind them- 
selves together and back the 
keeping of the Barn or some- 
thing similar ... if they can 
get behind the idea of the 
Barn and petition or get some 
kind of committee together 
to present something to the 
Campus Activities Director ... 
and if they have a strong 
enough student voice ... they 
{Campus Activities) will come 
up with the money from 

Everett feels that "the 
place where it is right now is 
the ideal location." Where 
could it be moved to? 
"That's another problem that 
Don Hossler, Campus Activi- 
ties Director, will face if he 
has to move the Barn." 

This year, Everett is trying 
to increase the use of the 
Barn. Last week, some time 
modifications were made to 

increase its use by Tuesday 
and Thursday night students 
during their class breaks. The 
new hours are: Monday-- 
Thursday, 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. 
and Friday-Sunday, 8:00 
to midniuhT 

To determine how much 
use the Barn is getting, the 
staff workers have kept 
records concerning this. Ac- 
cordine to Everett, their slow 
nights are usually Sunday and 
Monday nights, when they 
get about thirty people per 
night. Wednesday thru Satur- 
day, the Barn gets approxi- 
mately sixty five paying 
Customers with a total of 
seventy to eighty people per 
night. About non-paying cus- 
tomers, Everett added, "We 
welcome that. You don't 
have to purchase anything." 
Increasing the use of the 
Barn has been Everett's goal 
since she has been the 
Director. Her policy is that 
"the Barn can be used for 
any student activities." So 
far its use has been limited. 
Everett added, "I would like

Two organizations at 
CLC are currently considering 
disaffiliation with their cor- 


sophomore service group. 

All women students at 
CLC are members of AWS, 
which is funded by the stu- 
dent fees. This year, the 
CLC AWS group has decided 
not to renew its membership 
in the International Associa- 
tion of Women Students 
(IAWS), which requires a 
$40.00 membership fee per 
chapter. Kay Lehenbauer, 

AWS President, said, 
will not continue our mem- 
bership in the IAWS because 
we feel that out school is too 
smalt to pay dues and spend 
$600.00 to send three dele- 
gates to a convention." For 
all those women students 
interested, the next AWS 
meeting will be October 20, 
at 7:00 p.m., in the Thomp- 
son Hall lounge. 

The National Spurs is an 
organization which was ori- 
ginally founded as a sopho- 
more women's organization. 
However, in the summer of 
1976, the Congress of the 

United States passed Title 
9, which prohibits sex dis- 
crimination in organizations, 
so Spurs went co-ed. 

Last year's members of 
Spurs became disillusioned 
with the national organiza- 
tion, which requires a $12.00 
membership fee per person. 
Now, Spurs js considering re- 
organizing themselves as a 
service organization that will 
better suit the needs of CLC. 
This group will have a new 
name, as yet undecided, and 
will consist of sophomore 
and junior students, both 
male and female.

Cafeteria committee initiated 

continued on page 2 

By Karen Coppage 

In order to keep the food 
quality high on campus, a 
Food Committee was formed 
a few years ago. Any student 
who was interested could sign 
up under the direction of 
Mrs. Karen Tibbits. Dean 
Buchanan originated the idea, 
but it did not turn out the 
was it was intended. 

After two years of oper- 
ating, the Food Committee 

was changed. Craig Kinzer 
has appointed a new group, 
a minimum of six people, 
equal male and female ratio, 
as the Food Committee for 
this year. "It was changed 
from last year for an increased 
degree of authority and effec- 
tiveness," stated Kinzer. 

The main points the new 
Food Committee are going to 
look into are seeing if the 
cafeteria is run in the stu- 

dent's best interest with the 
given funds, and to try and 
look into the budget. 

When asked what kind of 
power the group would have, 
Kinzer replied, "I can't an- 
swer that at this time." 

This past week, the new 
committee had their first 
meeting with Kinzer. A report 
as to what went on at that 
meeting will be in the next 
issue of The ECHO. 



Governor Marvin Mandel, 57, of Maryland 
was given a four year sentence for his connec- 
tion in a mail fraud-racketeering scheme. Fed- 
eral court Judge Robert L. Taylor could have 
given Mandel a maximum penalty of 105 years 
in prison and a $42,000 fine. The judge em- 
phatically told the governor : 

"I have a great sympathy for you. You 
have many, many good gualities. I think you 
ade some serious mistakes." 


HEW Secretary Joseph A. Califano called 
for a revamping of the Food and Drug Admin- 
istration last Wednesday. Due to the public's 
lack of knowledge concerning both the pre- 
scription and over-the-counter drugs, he wants 
a "top-to-bottom, thorough overhaul" of 
government regulation of drugs. Califano said 
Americans are given little information about 
the drugs they buy, and "our regulatory pro- 
cess itself is closed and secretive."

One hundred forty shops, 
three major department stores 
and a five-screen United Ar- 
tists movie theater will occu- 
py the southeast corner of 
Hillcrest Drive and Lynn 
Road. The proposed shopping 
center will be completed by 
March 4, 1978, according to 
Steve Morici, Construction 
Co-ordtnator of the project 
for its owner, Ernest W. 
Hahn, Inc., in Los Angeles. 

Many CLC students could 
find employment there ac- 
cording to Jim Donnerstag of 
Coldwell Banker, Leasing Co- 
ordinator for the project. 
"They (the center) will be 
employing thousands of peo- 
ple," remarked Donnerstag. 
Morici stated that an employ- 
ment agency for the entire 
center will be temporarily 
housed in a traitor .on the 
parking lot by the middle of 
January, I97S. "This is the 
way we have handled it in 
the past," noted Morici, 
whose firm owns the Santa 
Anita shopping center as well 
as others. CLC students are 
encouraged to apply. 

The center will cover 
169,000 square feet and con-

One opportunity that Ev-

welcome to come down to 
the Barn and sing, play 
guitar, tell some jokes, or 
whatever else he would like 
to do. It can be a spon- 
taneous or planned act. Un- 
fortunately, according to Ev- 
erett, this opportunity has 
been used "maybe five 
times" since the beginning 
of last year. 

Everett says that if some-

When questioned about the 
sources of her supplies, Ever- 
ett said, "I get all my food 
from the cafeteria, except for 
candy which I get from 
Mrs. Olsen at the Book 
store." She stated that candy 
is the only item that is not 
sold at her cost. This is 
because she is not allowed 
to undersell the Book store. 

Out of the _ many 
things that the Barn offers, 
ice cream seems to get the 
most business. They go 
through approximately twen- 
ty-one gallons a week. The 

Barn uses the best-Foremost 
ice cream which is also 
used by Baskin-Robbins. The 
cost of the ice cream is 
$2.35 a gallon. As Everett 
puts it, "It's a real bargain." 

The prices at the Barn 
went up last year due to the 
inflated costs of food, main- 
ly sugar and coffee. Everett 
believes that the p. ices will 
remain stable in the Barn 
for the rest of this year. 
Has attendance at the Barn 
decreased since the price 
hikes went intoeffect? "No," 
says Everett, "I don't think 
that the price change has ef- 
fected the Barn use much." 

Three years ago, when Ev- 
erett was a staff worker, the 
average "take" was $15.00 a 
night with a good night b 
bringing in $20.00. Now. the 
average is $25.00 a night, 
with a bad night bringing 
in $17.00-$20.00 and a good 
night bringing in $35.00- 

Generally, according t 
Everett, "The Barn is strict- 
ly a student service." The 
Barn shows cost about 
$2,500.00 per year, all fun- 
ded by the ASCLC student 
fees. Their profit is about 
$10.00 a month which is 
then put back into the Barn 
by buying new equipment. 

Everett hopes to improve 
the stereo and P.A. systems 
that have been there for at 
least three years. She would 
"like to see a new P.A. sys- 
tem, a new stereo, a new 
turn table, new speakers, ev- 

The next scheduled Barn 
show will be October 14, at 
8:24 p.m. and also at 9:39 
p.m. It will feature Bruce ' 
Cervon, a magician. Everett 
says, "I feel that the Barn 
is used a lot by the students. 
Of course there's always 
room for improvement and 
the more people we serve, 
the better I feel." 


The development of a new mobile inter-

Graduate and continuing 
students attending night clas- 
ses at California Lutheran 
College pay the same $87.00 
per unit registration fee, as 
day undergraduate students. 
However, students whose 
classes are off campus pay 
$55.00 per unit because they 
are not using CLC classrooms 
or materials. There are two 
more exceptions to the regis- 
tration, which are students 
working an a Master's in Ed- 
ucation, the reason being 
that most of these people are 
teachers or other profession- 
als working to keep abreast 
in their field, and fees are 
also given to pastors and 
church workers, being that 
CLC is a Lutheran college 
and these people represent 
the church. 

According to Gary Erick-

istration of Justice Depart- 
ment, "students enrolled in

rate, but are able to apply for

federal money that students 
apply for through CLC. The 
two contingencies for this 
loan are: it is for those stu- 
dents who are already in 
criminal justice (policemen, 
judges, etc.) who upon grad- 
uation pay a certain percen- 
tage of their monthly wage 
to repay the loan; and those 
"in service students", who 
do not go into criminal jus- 
tice and upon graduation pay 
the loan back immediately. 

Graduates and continuing 
students do pay a $5.00 per 
semester administration fee 
and are only able to use the 
library. These students have 
an option to pay the $100.00 
student activity fee, which 
all undergraduate resident 
students must pay. If the 
night student decides to pay 
the activity fee he receives 
the same services that all 
other full time day students 
enjoy: ie free admission to 
football games, use of the 
tennis courts and pool. If 
the student elects not to pay 
the $100.00 activity fee, he 
has no use of these privilages. 

The number of students 
who are registered in night 
courses at CLC is about 
1,200. Obviously these stud- 
ents do not all attend CLC 
for classes, they are spread" 
out over the community, 
meeting in local schools and 
churches. Across California, 
"there are as few as eight 
students, and as many as 
10,000 students enrolled in 
various institutions, which 
are CLC affiliated." 

Coed dorms: Louder but students like it

During the 1975-76 school 
year, ASCLC president Alan 
Waite and Vice-president 
Mike Kirkpatrick initiated 
the idea of building a stereo 
listening room for the stud- 
ents. The money for this 
would be taken out of the 
ASCLC capital expenditures 
fund, and the room would be 
located in the SUB. The ma- 
jority of the students voted 
for the idea, and construc- 
tion on the proposed facili- 
ties began during the 1976-77 
school year. 

Purchased was a BSR 8- 
track player, turn table, four 
small amplifiers, and a pair ot 
Sennheiser headphones. The 
total amount of these parts 
came to $1,378.00. More 
headphones were to be pur- 
chased with the idea that 
three students would be able 
to listen at one time. Also in 
the plans was the possibility 
of making an elaborate elec- 
trical system enabling the 
different headphones to be 
connected to the different 
systems. In other words, 

one person could be listening 
to the 8-track, while another 
person was listening to an al- 
bum and another person 
could listen to the radio. 

The system is only par- 
tially connected, however.. 
Student Wayne Guthmiller 
volunteered to do the work 
but left the job unfinished as 
he did not return to CLC this 
year. Another problem has a- 
risen also in the fact that the 
pair of headphones is missing 
and according to Executive 
Cabinet, were presumably 
stolen. Thus, construction on 
the listening room is at a 
standstill as Executive Cabin- 
et is trying to decide what to 
do with it. Someone with a 
background in electronics is 
needed to complete the work 
but also there is no way to 
monitor the room to insure 
that more thefts do not oc- 

It has been suggested that 
the idea be given up and the 
system sold. A decision has

There are five and a half million people in Malawi, living in 
approximately 49,000 square miles (about the size of South- 
ern California). 

There is really no need for a Malawian police force, since 
the crime rate is almost zer°. Brody attributes this to both 
the country's strong unity of purposes upholding the four cor- 
nerstones of the Malawian Congress party which are unity, 
loyalty, obedience, and discipline, and to the swift justice in 
the courts, which are run similarly to those of the United 

Brody describes the people as very spiritual and wise. 
"President Banda told me years ago," says Brody, '"We have 
no perception or interest in a person's color. We need only 
look in a person's eyes to see what is in his heart.'" 

There are several hundred Malawian students enrolled in 
U.S. colleges, some even in California. Brody says that a lot of 
students, once here, wish they were back in simple, peaceful 
Malawi. 1 

Aside from his duties as Consul General, Brody is also a 
consultant specializing in Africa, the Middle East, and the Paci- 
fic Area. He has also written four children's books and a novel 
on Africa which is in the process of being completed, Memo- 
ries of Yesterday, Dreams of Tomorrow.

Consul General lives in Westlake! 

By Karen Hass 

Recently, I had the privilege of visiting Mr. Don Brody, 
Consul General for the African country, Malawi, at his home 
in Westlake Village. 

Brody was first aquainted with Malawi when President 
Lyndon Johnson sent him there on an assignment in 1964. At 
that time, he had a chance to meet the president of Malawi, 
Dr. H. Kamuzu Banda. Brody returned to Malawi in 1969 
with his wife Audrey and their three children; Dana, 14, John, 
13, and Christina, 11. Their youngest daughter, Colleen, 5, 
was born in Malawi and received an African name from Presi- 
dent Banda: "Nkhunda" which means Dove of the Morning 
Star. The Brodys lived in Malawi four years and in that time 
Brody became the country's first director of tourism. He also 
worked as a business administration teacher at the University 
of Malawi among other assignments from Malawi's president. 

Brody and his family had many experiences; one significant 
experience was becoming close friends with the President, who 
is most often recognized as, "Ngwazi," meaning "Messiah." 

"The whole country absolutely worships Dr. Banda because 
of his wise decisions and democratic ways," says Brody, "In 
1971 , the people of Malawi refused to honor another presiden- 
tial election, which are supposed to be held every four years. 
They insisted that Dr. Banda take the oath of office as presi- 
dent for life." 

"Dr. Banda has proven his title worthy in many different 
ways," Brody says. "Everything Dr. Banda has done has been 
for the betterment of the country. When 1 first went there, I 
don't think there was a full suit of clothes in Malawi. Dr. 
Banda is responsible for raising the literacy rate from 2% to 
60% and increasing the income of the Malawians from nothing 
to $1 200-$3600 a year which is a very good income in Malawi. 
This increase was due to the wise development of 
agriculture." . , , ... 

The country itself is considered poor by world statistical 
standards, but Brody explains that by no means do the people 

The Brody's home recently had the honor of hosting a 
Chief Sangoma, Credo Vusamazulu Mutwa, the spiritual leader 
of over five million Zulu people. 

Mr. Brody is looking forward to a business trip to Africa in 
about a month including a visit to Malawi to see his many 
friends and pay a call on President Banda.

Sunday Oct. 23 the 
church service will take on 
yet another dimension. Lord 
of Life Lutheran church is 
known for its diverse styles 
of worship. This Sunday will 
be no exception. Al 11:00 
a.m. in the gym there will be 
a service of worship with 

The clown service is an- 
other form of worship. Chris- 
tian clowns are Christlike. 
They express God's love 
through actions and not 
words. In putting on the 
make-up a clown humbles 
himself, becoming a servant 
of God's people. Like a mir- 
ror, a clown reflects back to 
us the truth about ourselves. 

God works through the 
clown to call us into relation- 
ship with Him. Childlike 
trust and spontanaity charac- 
terize a true God-human rela- 

The ciown has a story to 
tell. The telling of this story 
is something that is woven 
into his very existence. But 
the clown is silent, unable to 
speak. So to communicate 
the clown talks with his 
body, especially with his face 
and hands. It is common to 
look at someone's face when 
communicating with them; 
to gaze at someone's hands is 
not a natural procedure. 

The clown uses his hands 
to communicate to others 
that he loves. The clown's 
hands are extensions of his 
heart; through their move- 
ments people know what he 
is, how he feels, and most im- 
portant, who he is. 

Take hold of the clown's 
hand, take hold of anyone's 
hand and you can feel the 
beating of their heart, the 
very substance of their life. 
Take hold of a hand and you 
will have begun the aware- 
ness of yourself. That mo- 
ment has the seed of the cre- 
ation of love every time it is 

The clown's hands define 
how he is. Your hands de- 
fine who you are in much the 
same manner. The clown 
says, "I love you" with his 
hands. The clown also says 
"I love you" with his body. 
The clown communicates "I 
love you" anyway he can, 
and when he does, he is an- 
swering his call. 

The clown in his loving is 
committing himself, freely 
giving of himself. The clown 
gives. He gives as much love 
as he can. And if you show 
him how to give more love, 
he will. If he offers more 
love than you need he will go 
on to keep giving until his 
love is gone. 

The clown is made of love 
though, and love is his es- 
sence. Therefore his love 
continues throughout his ex- 
istence. The clown gives and 
gives, and must give his love 
away. Otherwise the love is 
not love, and the clown is 
not a clown. 

The clown is love. The 
clown is a lover. The clown 
is a vulnerable lover. His love 
is given away and given away 
freely to all who accept it. 

What the clown gives a- 
way theologians call grace.

The M No Risk Career": false advertising? 

By Bill Moore 

Now that's what I call a catchy title - or, 
depending on your point of view, you could 
call it false advertising. Because the reality is 
that a "no-risk" career does not exist, at least 
to my knowledge. Despite that reality, I've 
talked to quite a number of students here and 
at other schools who ask me for a guaranteed 
job at the end of the educational line - which 
I call the "no-risk" career. So I'd like to take 
this opportunity to address this misperception 
with a few perceptions of my own. 

because there is competition in every field, e- 
ven those fields experts label as "open". An 
annual surplus of 140,000 college graduates is 
anticipated by 1980. Some studies estimate 
the supply of college graduates will exceed 
the demand for them by 700,000 in 1985. 
Now that's competition! 

Second, today's popular, open field can 
easily become tomorrow's overcrowded one if 
everyone rushes into it. Look at teaching -in 
the mid to late 60's the word was there were 
not enough teachers. Now? Ask any educa- 
tion major. Engineering has gone through the 
same kind of swing in reverse, and may be 
swinging back. Law may be the next satura- 
ted area. 

One conclusion to be drawn at this point is 
that the process of making career decisions 
implies risk, at least in the sense of our acting 
on incomplete and sometimes inaccurate in- 
formation and not being completely sure a- 
bout what lies at the end of the tunnel. Yes, 
we take risks in these decisions, but at the risk 
of sounding like a bad Western, isn't that 
what life is all about? Risk-taking is an inte- 
gral part of our daily lives, like it or not Like 
it or not we need to deal with risk-taking - 
and out career decisions are no exception 

What is the response to this situation? To 
many students and educators, the response is 
a mad dash to vocational training and more 
clearly career-related college ma,ors. And for 
some, I am sure that is a wise choice. But the 
choice may be shortsighted for many people 
and they seem to be making this choice for alj 
the wrong reasons 
be on the basis of what you enjoy ; 

; the choice should 

nd do well 

and not what seems to be the "logical" choice 

___.... .... ~A r (r^i^ember what 1 

anu nut »■■"' . 

based on job market trends \r 
said about what can happen to those trends?)^ 
An alternative response is to get a broad 

liberal arts education and concentrate in an 
area which you find most interesting. But 
what about getting a job, you say? Well, a re- 
cent study revealed that 80% of a sample of 
fathers of college-bound students aren't doing 
ANYTHING connected with their college ma- 
jors. And they overwhelmingly said the best 
bet for a satisfying life is getting an education, 
regardless of what the major is. Other studies 
show that liberal arts graduates, specifically, 
seem more satisfied with their lives - and of- 
ten are better paid, too. 

Let's face it - specific job skills are much 
more often than not taught on-the-job, not in 
the classroom. What you need from an educa- 
tion, especially "higher" education, as college 
is so nobly called, is confrontation with your- 
self and your values, the ability to THINK 
and problem-solve, and the ability to commu- 
nicate effectively, both in oral and written 
form. You certainly have to judge for your- 
self the extent to which you are, in fact, de- 
veloping in these areas, but it seems to me 
that the opportunity does exist here at CLC; 
it's up to you to take advantage of it. 

This is NOT to say that liberal arts grads 
have it "made in the shade" (am I showing 
my age with that expression?) in the world of 
work and careers, A recent Western College 
Placement Association survey reveals a strong 
bias against liberal arts grads in some work 
sectors, most notably finance, manufacturing, 
oil companies, and electronics/communica- 
tions, at least in terms of the number of re- 
cent hires of college graduates. HOWEVER, 
the insurance, utilities, and retail areas ail hire 
about the same number of liberal arts grads as 
business grads, AND in government, which is 
becoming by far the LARGEST sector of the 
work force, the vast majority of hires are li- 
beral arts grads. So while there may be a per- 
iod of "floundering" in the early post-gradua- 
tion years for liberal arts grads, there are job 
possibilities, nonetheless, and the long-term 
benefits of flexibility and overall staisfaction 
may be worth the early problems. Though 
you have to decide for yourself what course 
of action to take, you may want to discuss 
these ideas with someone, or argue with me 
about any or all of my perceptions; if so, feel 
free to drop by my office at the Student Cen- 
ter in the Commons area of the cafeteria. If 
I'm not free I'll at least be reasonable.

By Brenda Peters 

Linda Pedersen, a junior 
at California Lutheran, is 
keeping in touch with her 
Danish background. Her 
parents and older brother 
were born in Denmark. Be- 
ing young and with just one 
child, Mr. and Mrs. Pedersen 
traveled to the United States 
and settled in Solvang, a 
small Danish community in 
California. It was in Solvang 
that Linda was born and 

Every year in September, 
"Danish Days" festivities are 
held in Solvang. Last year 
Linda was chosen "Danish 
Maid-1976," Her duties re- 
quired her to represent Sol- 
vang on radio and television 
appearances to try and en- 
courage people to come and 
visit the town. This proved 
to be a very stimulating ex- 
perience for her because "it 
made me more aware of my 
Danish heritage." The fol- 
lowing spring Linda went to 
Denmark and attended the 
University of Copenhagen for 
a semester, 

Along with Linda, 235 o- 
ther students from all parts 
of the United States spent a 
semester in Denmark. Be- 
cause of the language barrier, 
their classes were taught to 
them in English. This proved 
to be a handicap because the 
American students were seg- 
regated from the Danish stu- 
dents. But, says Linda, "The 
Danish people are sort of 
withdrawn and reserved at 
first. Some of the students 
had a bad attitude towards 
them because they couldn't 

itke will speak

communicate. This was no 
problem for me since we 
speak Danish at home, and I 
could relate to them." 

Linda encourages students 
to find out about studying in 
Europe for a semester or e- 
ven a year. Credits earned 
are transferable. Dean Krag- 
thorpe will be putting addi- 
tional information in the 
school catalog next year re- 
garding study abroad. If you

fically about the program of 
study in Denmark, write di- 
rectly to this organization:

Linda voices her opinion 
on travel and education, "It 
is an enjoyable experience to 
study in another country. 
Your weekends are free, 
which enables students to 
travel in special groups all o- 
ver Europe. I would like to 
make everyone aware of the 
endless possibilities to ex- 
pand their knowledge

One of the few persons 
ever granted a series of inter- 
views with the reclusive 
Chaing Ch'ing, Ms. Witke 
traces the life of this extraor- 
dinary woman from her days 
as an actress, student, and 
propagandist to her ascent 
into the highest ranks of the 
Chinese Communist govern- 

Currently a visiting Re- 
search Associate of the East 
Asian Institute of Columbia 
University, Ms. Witke is on 
leave from her position as 
Associate Professor of History 
of the State University of 
New York in Binghampton. 

She is a graduate of Stan- 
ford University, the Univer- 
sity of Chicago, (M.A., I962) 
and the University of Califor- 
nia at Berkeley (Ph.D., I970). 

The recipient of various 
grants and fellowships from 
distinguished institutions, she 
used a recent grant from the 
National Endowment in the 

Humanities to complete her 
book about Chiang Ch'ing 
She has lectured widely on 
various aspects of modern 
a nd revolutionary China and 
has been a frequent guest on 
TV and radio in the United 
States and abroad. 

Since 1975, Professor 
Witke has served as Assistant 
Editor for China with The 
Journal of Asian Studies, 
and her writings have appear- 
ed in The China Quarterly 
The J ournal of Asian Studies! 
and The American Historical 

Her book on Madam Mao 
CH'ING (Little, Brown), was 
excerpted in Time magazine 
in March 1977, featured as 
an alternate of the Book- of- 
the-Month Club in May, and 
subsequently translated into 
fifteen other languages.

Senior, Jim Hanson, does his thing! (Photo Paul Brousseau) 

Is he really 

A human water sprinkler? 

By Rohyn Saleen 

What goes "squirt, squirt, squirt" (something like a rainbird 
sprinkler) and does great impersonations of Dr. Kuethe, Dr. 
Kallas, and Dr. Smith, too? No, not Rich Little. Try again. You 
guessed it! CLC Senior Jim Hanson. 

Yes, Jim Hanson has all these impersonations down-pat. 
But they are only a very small part of what makes up Jim's 
life and interests right now. His goal in life is to become a min- 
ister in the Lutheran church, "When the idea hit me," says Jim, 
"I laughed. When I decided that's what I wanted to do, every- 
one else laughed." To become a minister, Jim can look for- 
ward to four more years of school, and Pacific Lutheran Theo- 
logical Seminary in Berkeley is his choice for his training. He 
chose this seminary mainly because of its location. Jim likes 
the west coast for its climate and would eventually like to 
practice his ministry somewhere in the western United States. 
This is another reason he chose P.L.T.S., as many of the school's 
graduates begin their ministries in this region. 

However, before going right into seminary, Jim plans on 
following in the footsteps of last year's ASCLC president, 
Brian Webber by teaching in Japan. According to Jim, there is 
a demand for teachers of the English language so this is what 
he hopes to do. Taking a break and "sitting out" from school 
for "at least a year" are Jim's motives behind this decision. It 
seems that the opportunity to have such an experience is pretty 
hard for him to pass up, since Jim places "understanding and 
the ability to handle people" highest on his list of require- 
ments for pastors and teaching would help in developing these 

So much for the future. Let's take a look at Jim Hanson 
right now. He is a psychology major (a subject he feels will 
really aid him as a minister) and is also an assistant in the Psy- 
chology Department. The main word in Jim's non-academic 
life has to be sports. He played on the baseball team during his 
first two years at CLC, and has been involved in intramural 
sports of which he is director this year. Then in his "spare" 
time, he enjoys tennis, racketball, and bike-riding. 

Jim, a native of Phoenix, Arizona, has a brother and two 
sisters. When asked how he feels about marriage, he says he'll 
be ready for it "maybe in six years." And if he ever does 
decides he's ready for the "big step" he figures he'd want a 
small famly, too. "Plus a cat" he adds thouchtfuHv.

The sonorous voice built 
to a crescendo as Andrew 
Grzeskowiak, visiting poet 
interpretatively shared his' 
original poems with Dr. Jack 
Ledbetter's koinonia group 
on Oct. 7 in Pederson 

Grzeskowiak attributes 
his poetic endeavors to the 
instigation and encourage- 
ment of Dr. Ledbetter, his 
friend of fifteen years, They 
met while Grzeskowiak was 
attending Concordia Teach- 
ers College in Seward, Neb- 
raska, and Dr. Ledbetter was 
teaching there. 

Grzeskowiak's poetry is 
thematically Christian. "Re- 
ligious poetry proceeds from 
man searching out to a rela- 
tionship with the Infinite," 
explained the poet. 

Grzeskowiak describes him- 
self as "rttualistically orien- 
ted." A Missouri Synod Lu- 
theran, he acknowledges that 
his early contact with Cathol- 
icism through his father and 
grandmother may have gen- 
erated his penchant for ritu- 
presently teaches at 
, 's Catholic School in 
, California (near B»- 

When a sophomore in col- 
lege, Grzeskowiak's poems 
won first and third prizes at 
the St, John's Festival of 


Arts in Sacramento. He has 
also won awards from the 
National Poetry Press in Los 
Angeles. His verses have ap- 
peared in the Prairie Schoon- 
er, a literary journal of the 
University of Nebraska, and 
The Cresset of Valpo, Indi- 
ana, to name a few. 

The bard read his Christ- 
mas poem, "Shrove Tues- 
day," (to commemorate the 
day of confession and for- 
giveness before Ash Wednes- 
day), "Good Friday," "Eas- 
ter Eve," and "Resurrection 

"Melomel, a type of dis- 
tilled wine, symbolizes the 
essence of the Resurrection," 
commented Grzeskowiak in 
explanation of the title. 
"Melomel fits because the 
Resurrection, as I see it, is in- 
toxicating, sense-changing, 
and totally altering," he con- 

Grzeskowiak has taught in 
public and Christian schools 
in the midwest and Kern 
County since his graduation 
from Concordia in 1970.

For the Senior Class 

By Patti Behn 

Ever wonder what to do 
with that aluminum can after 
you finish your nice cool, tall 
-soft drink??? And what to 
do with that pile of old news- 
papers that's been accumula- 
ting in your room after 
you've read them while sip- 
ping that nice soft drink?? 

Well, does the Senior 
Class have an answer for 
you! "We're collecting news- 
papers and aluminum cans 
for recycling," says Mark 
Cattau, Senior Class V.K 
Not only is the senior class 

doing its part for ecology 
through this project, but 
they're also trying their best 
to add some $$$ to their 
treasury for their class gift. 

YOU can bring cans and/ 
or newspapers to Kramer 3 
or deposit them in the boxes 
soon to be provided for col-

fh. ilr, h„l . ? • e '" glfts t0 C LC as a result of reforming 
occurs at all S '' Un " ke ' v ,0 ° ccu '- if a "V reduction 

Another important aspect of this issue arises from Rev. 
Roald Kindem, Vice-President for Development at CLC. (The 
Development Office is dedicated to raising money for increased 
faculty salaries, student financial aid and building expansion ' 
After discussing this issue with Rev. Kindem, I feel that he is 
genuinely concerned about the alcohol abuse problem among 
CLC students, and even among administrators and faculty and 
staff members. Rev. Kindem was a Pastor in a Lutheran parish 
in Albert Lee, Minnesota for 20 years and often counseled 
alcoholics. Rev. Kindem told me that his primary concern is 
not with collecting gifts for the college. Instead, his "major 
concern is with the health and well-being of the students". He 
only questions "whether drinking alcohol on the campus will 
lead to a better living-learning environment". 

I feel that a reformed alcohol policy on the CLC campus 
will improve the living-learning experience. At present, the on- 
campus regulations have created an unhealty environment in 
which to prepare for our post-graduate life. Just as a state 
prison stifles a human being's potentiality to fulfill all of his 
capabilities by subjecting him to an environment burdened 
with regulations, so does this community stunt our growth by 
placing restrictions and threats of penalties on us which are so 
different than those whch we will experience in the "real 
world". In this respect, then, Cal Lutheran has smothered the 
whole potentiality of our emotional maturation and wisdom. 
Sadly, this will affect us not only during our college years, but 
also in our careers, family experiences and community leader- 
ship which occurs in our post-graduate life. Shouldn't the "Lu" 
display care and responsibility about this phase of our life, 
too? Most students, I believe, attend college to prepare for 
their life ahead. 

The alcohol policy is counterproductive to the purpose of 
CLC's educational ministry in other ways, too. By authorizing 
the resident staff members to enter dormitory rooms, and con- 
front and arrest those who drink (much in the same manner as 
the work of a police officer), the Cal Lutheran Administration 
is severing relationships between students and resident staff 
members. Some of us can recall of head residents or RA's 
whom we always tried to avoid, or applied nasty names to when 
speaking of antics or schemes this resident staff member 

would perform to "nail" us for drinking. Unfortunately, the 
mere existence of the alcohol policy has put the staff member 
into the wrong perspective. Of course, the purpose of the staff 
is to be of help to the students, playing the role of a guidance 
counselor or a loving, caring mom. The effects of the alcohol 
policy have brought some of us unwilling to seek the help of a 
staff member when we were having trouble with a roommate, 
or even when we were in the midst of a crises with a family 
member back home. 

Also, the restrictions on alcohol use are fostering alcohol 
abuse. According to Dean Kragthorpe, people most often act 
irresponsible in a restricted environment, rather than in a free 
environment. This rule applies to drinking, too. Alcohol abuse 
is likely to be higher on college campuses that restrict the use 
of alcohol than on college campuses that do not condemn 
drinking If any CLC administrator or member of the Board of 
Regents or representative on the College Council feels strongly 
that he is showing genuine concern for the alcohol abuse prob- 
lem by supporting the castigation of the mere use of alcohol 
on campus I say: "Rubbish!" James Y.K.Moy, Director of 
Student Affairs at WartburE College (a Lutheran educational 
Institute in Waverly, Iowa) reported to Dean Kragthorpe that 
their change in policy to permit drinking in dormitories has 
altered the drinking habits among students. He reports that 
during the campus prohibition students "were more inclined 
to drink in a juvenile fashion, drinking unt.l they were drunk, 
purely because its presence was not allowed in the residence 
halls" He is happy to report that since the prohibition four 
years ago, "our drinking habits are more mature now than 
they have ever been". Certainly, then, student drinking habits 
at CLC can only mature and insure a smooth flight into the 
"real world" if the regulations on dorm room drinking are re- 
formed It is no wonder, then, that Dean Kragthorpe has 
termed the current regulations on alcohol as educationally 

"Tlncidentally, CLC must endeavor to bring forth genuine 
concern for the alcohol abuse problem or. campus. First, low- 
key awareness education of the effects of alcohol, respon ible

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

I thought every newspaper had at least one editorial col- 
umnist. But four issues of the Echo have been published and, 
except for some Washington gibberish from Jack Anderson, 
there has been nothing close. 

A college newspaper especially needs this sort of thing. 
Someone to report all the crazy and the ugly and the com- 
mendable things which occur. A commentary on our campus 
life. Although the word around says we college students here 
at CLC are sheltered and unknowing of the real "real world" 
this isn't so - not really; we, too, screw up just as well, and of 
course occassionally do the wonderful sort of things, just like 
"out there" - collectively and yes, individually 

My general reason, then for this column, is to openly study 
what we do here, lend opinions, and try to analizewhat things 
lead to and where thingscamefrom.Thisisa tough job at best, I 
know, but we all individually reflect on such things, at least 
try to when we ever have the time. In the future, this space 
will contain my reflections -on-thegeneralswte of things around 
us here at the Lu. 

Before I begin, I should admit I know few will like a moral 
interpreter; we all believe we keep track of what we truly 
feel, but who has the time to he sure? My opinions, then, will 
be as sandcastles on the beach of counsciousness: each of you 
may destroy or add to them as you will, or they can be left 
ignored to be washed away by the surf of greater things. (Like 
who to like, who to hate, what to do tonight. How to speak, 
where to go. In short, the life led without bother, without 
worry; a stylized, static set of furmulas designed to bring us 
merely happiness: packaged, sold, and consumed -- undigested. 
But then, who ever has the time to know?) 

How many students aren't reading this edition of the Echo 
because Monday's holiday allows them a three day weekend, 
so they took four? And how many will miss two full days of 
classes the third week in November to enjoy a week of Thanks- 
giving? Include me. 

Despite arguments from faculty and the serious student to 
the effect of, "You are paying dearly for your education; don't 
lose an ounce of it.", the race of up at seven don't miss that 
class again, when is that paper due(?), where can I find my bed 
(God, am I tired!), to how to find time to enjoy myself, all 
lead directly to "give me an opportunity and I will relax" - 
for any pretense. 

Who can fault this? More important than the time to do the 
middling things born of hurry and blind ambition, is the simple, 
caring concern for oneself. What good are we when we are 
not at ease inside, not able to relax, to think clearly, slowly, 

Along the path are too many ruts and muddy places to be 
ill-prepared for; stop and look, then tread lightly on the earth - 
what reasons do we suppose we're here for?

Cal Lu leaves for La Verne 

News Media 

A fast improving California Lutheran Col- 
lege football team journeys to La Verne for 
a District II crucial tomorrow against a strong 
and physical Leopard gang that just demol- 
ished nationally ranked Azusa-Pacific 33-3. 
The Kingsmen have had little time to 
relish their 21-0 victory over aerial-minded 
Occidental College, as they take to the road 
for the third straight week to prove the merit 
of being ranked number 6 in the NAIA nat- 
ional poll. 

A different task faces the Kingsmen de- 
fense this week. Having met and conquered 
the Nation'sbest small college passer and re- 
ceiver they now face a one-two running game 
that rates with the very best around. 

Senior tailback Ben Morrow commands 
the most attention with his 6-1 , 235 pound 
body smashing defenses with blocking and 
running-His excellent speed makes him a most 
dangerous type of Leopard. Brad Frick has a 
toughness that belies his 195 pound frame. 
He looks small next to Morrow, but the 
Kingsmen know him well as the one who tore 
up the CLC defense in 1976 with a dazzling 
show of power and balance. 

CLC may well have come of age against 
Oxy last Saturday night. A splendid punting 
game and a swarming pass rush seemed to 
declaw the Tigers to the delight of a large 
throng of fans that followed the team to 

Eagle Rock. 

Starting slow and finally taking control 
in the third quarter, the CLC offense put to- 
gether four long drives and discovered paydirt 
twice. John Kindred ran over (literally) for 
both scores. 

Three punt returns for touchdowns should 
have made the game an easy one for veteran 
coach Bob Shoup, but two were called back 
by penalties and with Brad Hoffman wide 
left on two early field goal attempts the 
Kingsmen had to be content with a 7-0 
halftime advantage and settle for a three 
touchdown margin of victory. 

It was mostly the CLC defense that stood 
tall, giving up short, quick passes in ex- 
change for minus yards rushing, and not a sin- 
gle long pass completion. Oxy threatened 
only once in the second half and was forced 
to punt 13 times in the game. 

Middle linebacker Kevin Leslie, whose 
birthday was Saturday night, celebrated 
by having another ■ outstanding game. 
Craig Kinzer had an excellent night at defen- 
sive back and defensive end Pat Ryan re- 
covered a Tiger fumble and Came up with 
a sack on QB Hamilton, last year's leading 
passer in the nation. 

Steve Bogan continued his fine play on 
defense and sparkled on punt runbacks. 
He was CLC's special team player of the 

Renae Ahlness and Jeff Berg 
team up to add spirit to the 
Kingmen's efforts.

Kingsmen romp 
in home victory 

By Mike Gibbons 

CLC's cross country team looks as though it has found win- 
ing ways. For the second straight week the Kingsmen put to- 
gether an impressive victory, this time overcoming the likes of 
Cal State Bakersfield, Loyola and Cal State Dominguez Hills, 
with L. A. Baptist and Biola listed as no shows, 

CLC's Ed Ramirez and Dave Helgeson finished in a dead 
heat for first place for the second week in a row with a time 
of 26:36, which is a new course record. Last week the pair, 
along with teammate Don Davies, finished in a tie for first 
with a time of 26:14. 

The team won the event with a total of only 25 points. 
Cal State Bakersfield finished second (33 points), and Cal 
State Dominguez Hills and Loyola brought up the rear with 
84 and 1 1 4 points, respectively. 

Cal State Bakersfield's two top runners nabbed third and 
fourth places and Davies grabbed fifth for the Lu in a time of 
27:02. CLC's Andy Black tailed off a little, but still finished 
seventh with a time of 28:08. 

This Saturday CLC will pack their bags and travel to 
Chapman for a tri-meet. Their opponents will be Chapman 
College and L. A. Baptist. The meet will begin at 10:30 a.m.

Soccer endures rough 
week, goes for 2 

By Tom Kirkpatrick 

Last Saturday, October 8, the Kingsmen soccer team trav- 
eled to Fresno to meet Fresno State University in the first 
clash ever between the two schools. CLC, arriving somewhat 
tate, was stunned with the news that they had just forfeited to 
the Bulldogs. The forfeit is now under protest with the league 
officials and the coaching staff of FSU will be reprimanded for 
their neglect in not keeping the officials for the reauired period 
of time for a forfeit. The game will either be nullified or 
Fresno will be given the loss. 

This past Wednesday the soccer team suffered a rugged 
overtime loss to Azusa Pacific College by the score of 2-4. 

Cal Lutheran, coming from behind after trailing at the half 
1-0, took a 2-1 lead on a hustling rebound shot off the goalie 
by Scot Rothman and a penalty shot by Chuck Seeger. Late in 
the second half, still holding a tenuous lead, the Kingsmen 
were denied on a second penalty shot. As the ball was brought 
out by Azusa, a fight developed involving several members of 
both teams. Its immediate result was that a member of each 
team was ejected from the game. Its long range effect was to 
deprive Calu of its most potent fullback, Eric Helsten. 

APC, taking advantage of the weakened defensive line, put 
in a second goal to tie things up. With no time remaining on 
the clock they were given a penalty shot which was stopped on 
an excellent save by CLC goalkeeper Moy Serrano. 

The ensuing twenty minutes of overtime proved fruitless 
for the Kingsmen as Azusa Pacific came up with two more 
( scores to leave Cal Lutheran with a frustrating 4-2 setback.

The road to royalty was not 
all paved with roses for the girls 
of the 1977 Homecoming Court. 
The nominees shared many ex- 
periences which they greeted 
with mixed reactions such as 
"Why?" or "You're kidding ... 
aren't you?" 

From the moment of the earli- 
est notification of their nomina- 
tion, requests were presented to 
the candidates - and question- 
naires, lots of questionnaires. 
Then, too, the experience of 
nomination included three prob- 
lematical aspects: after the origi- 
nal "I won!", the girls moved to 
asking "Who shall I get to escort 
mr?" to "What shall I wear?" 
and then on to the problem of 
surviving three weeks of waiting. 

Of course, the nominees, all 
thirteen, had obligations. |ust 
two days after their nomination 
was the photographic session, 
"out by the pepper tree in Kings- 
men Park". Under the delighted 
gaze of the three photographers, 
the girls followed directions to 
smile prettily at first "that bush" 

Road to royalty 

paved with 
rocks and 


and then "that telephone pole". 

The pictures were taken about 
5 p.m. and the ladies were arrayed 
in their nicest longdresses, nylons 
and three inch heels. Fine for a 
walk in the park, but these chiv- 
alrous photographers had a coach 
to offer. And what a coach! 

Thirteen girls, one coronation 
chairperson, and three photo- 
graphers were pulled, pushed, 
and squished into a small Datsun 
camper. With one photographer 
clinging tenaciously to the roof, 
and another doubling as a hood 

ornament, the camper bounced 
and jounced down the dusty road 
past the stables. Only the gentle- 
men photographers knew the 
destination, and except for occa- 
sional kidnap threats, they 
weren't talking. 

That was probably just as well, 
for the group disembarked on 
Mt. Clef bluffs at sunset. The 
mist, rose-tinted by the setting 
sun, was indeed beautiful, but 
some of the poetic effect was lost 
on the girls who were busy clam- 
bering over the rocks and through 

the dust. 

The group picture was taken 
effectively outlined against the 
sunset sky, and then everyone 
repacked themselves in the truck 
for the return journey to the cafe- 
teria... which was closing. The 
lucky ladies hastened in, still 
dressed in their formal attire. 

Everyone laughed good-na- 
turedly, assuming the photo- 
graphic experience was safely 
behind them. Well, almost ... A 
week later it was discovered that 
all the black and white pictures 
were out of focus! So each girl 
was again called and asked to 
make a return visit to the pepper 
tree in the park. Reactions to 
this request ranged from good- 
humored acceptance to horrified 

Then the final days of waiting 
began, with rehearsal and the 
coronation itself bringing their 
own problems of butterflies in 
the stomach, the walk down the 
narrow runway on an escort's 
arm, and then listening for that 
final announcement.

ASCLC utilizes college committees 

By Kathy Hitchcox 

"ASCLC is utilizing all com- 
mittee groups to the maximum 
and working to increase the num- 
ber of students on committees 
and their power," explained Craig 
Kinzer, ASCLC president, as the 
student chairpersons of the CLC 
committees met Oct. 18 to dis- 
cuss their responsibilities. 

The CLC committees are com- 
posed of faculty, administration, 
and students. There are eleven 
committees altogether, dealing 
with everything from student 
affairs to academic development. 
All the committees this year, ex- 
cept for governance and appoint- 
ment, rank, and tenure commit- 
tees, have student representatives. 

Students on these committees 
are part of the executive branch 
of ASCLC, appointed by the pres- 
ident. Accordingly, they must 
uphold certain responsibilities. 
Their critieria is to attend all 
meetings, maintain confidentialiy 
and report to the senate. Bob 
Glatt, chairperson of Academic 
Standards, recommended other 
chairpersons to talk to students 
and gather information about 

offer help 

Women can increase their 
skills and learn the art of self 
evaluation in a series of work- 
shops offered this fall by the 
Women's Center and the Office 
of Continuing Education at 
California Lutheran College. 

The dynamics of effective de- 
cision making will be presented in 
a short course entitled Decision 
Making on Thursday evenings 
from 6 to 8 p.m. beginning Octo- 
ber 27 and running through De- 
cember 8. Bill Moore, Director of 
Career Planning and Placement, 
will teach the course, which will 
cost $40. 

For women who want to ex- 
plore the art of self evaluation 
through psychosynthesis, guided 
imagery and symbolic dialogue, 
two workshops on The Whole 
Woman will be offered. Dr. John 
Cullen and Karin Hillsdale will 
conduct four sessions from 9:30 
a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Fridays begin- 
ning October 21 through Novem- 
ber 1,1. An alternative workshop 
will be offered on Saturdays from

their respective subjects. He fur- 
ther emphasized that during 
meetings, students shouldn't be 
afraid to ask questions. "Your 
role is to find out what the stu- 
dents want rather than what the 
faculty think the students want," 
explained Glatt. 

Student chairpersons are Stu- 
dent Affairs, Dave Hagen; Aca- 
demic Standards, Bob Glatt; 
Academic Development, Lynn 
Gulizia; ASCLC Hearing Board, 
Karen Berdahl; Athletic Commit- 
tee, Jeff Berg; College Council, 
Steve Thrash; Curriculum, Terrel 
Ratchford; Academic Service, 
Gary Pederson; All College Hear- 
ing Board, Greg Range, and Con- 
vocators, Dawn Dugall. 

CLC committees and their 
main purposes are convocators, 
who elect the regents, Academic 
Standards, who deal with core 
requirements, degree require- 

ments, GPA's within majors, and 
standards for admission; College 
Council, which is similar to atask 
force that deals with anything 
student orientated; Curriculum, 
who evaluates the school catalog; 
Academic Development, which 
makes nominations for honorary 
doctorates and distinguished ser- 
vices awards; and Student Affairs, 
which is concerned mainly with 
dorm policies and student life- 

"If anything on campus is 
bothering you, inform one of the 
committee members, "suggested 
Kinzer. Furthermore, he related 
that if any students are interested 
in joining a CLC committee, one 
should notify him immediately 
since some positions may open 
up this year. Kinzer is also already 
taking names for next year's 
committee positions.

The ASCLC office was remodeled earlier this year as a part of the 
continuing SUB renovation. Future plans are being discussed for the 
remaining money, approximately $10,000. 

Tat City' is coming! 

By Kathy Hitchcox 

Plans for an upcoming election 
and a fall work day project were 
only a beginning of the topics 
and plans discussed at last Sun- 
day's senate meeting in the SUB. 

Presently, the offices of Junior 
class secretary and Consumer 
Board representative need to be 
filled. Accordingly, Dave Hagen, 
Vice President, suggested elec- 
tions should be held as soon as 
possible, the forum on Nov. 1, 
and voting on Nov. 2. Vice presi- 
dents of each class will handle 
the publicity for this event. 

In the president's report, 
Craig Kinzer began by appointing 
Lou Solerius and Ellen Dvoracek 
to the Food Service Committee, 
with senate approval. Next, he 
proposed ideas for several upcom- 
ing activities. The first concerned 
a fall work day project, where 
students, faculty and administra- 
tion would participate in renova- 
ting areas of the campus. An out- 
door concert at West-end would 
follow as a reward for a hard 
day's work. Tentative dates for 
this event were set at Dec. 10 
and 11. 

A spring festival for next sem- 
ester, currently being considered 
by the senate, was also discussed. 
Both Kinzer and Hagen particu- 
larly emphasized that this event 

would have no connections what- 
soever with past CLC spring 

Commissioners reported on 
their activities, beginning with 
RAC. the Religious Activities 
Commission. Next month, they 
will sponsor the movie, "Brother 
Sun and Sister Moon." Publica- 
tions followed, and announced 
that senior, faculty, and staff 
pictures would be taken in Nov- 
ember with a Dec. 1 deadline. 
Jeff Berg was also appointed to 
serve on the Publications commisj- 
sion with senate approval. Social 
Publicity Commissioner, Joel 
Gibson, previewed the upcoming 
multi-media presentation, "Fal 
City," which will give CLC stu- 
dents insight into how people 
live for week-ends. 

Next, the Freshmen anc 
Sophomore classes gave their re- 
ports. Cary Hegg, sophomore class 
treasurer, presented details on 
Sophomore Sundae night to be 
held Nov. 6. He also explained 
that a "Mr. CLC" pageant is also 
being planned for Nov. 17. The 
Freshmen class intends to sponsor 
a continental breakfast for alumni 
Oct. 30. Their activities include a 
jingle bell promotion and co- 
sponsorship of the Christmas 

Work and play a 
part of work day 

By Joel Gibson 

The ASCLC is tentatively 
planning to sponsor a work day 
with a concert sometime during 
the fall semester. Although the 
details have not been worked out 
yet, ASCLC President Craig Kin- 
zer and Vice-President Dave Hag- 
en would like to see this come a- 
bout as a success. 

"I'd like to see all parts of the 
campus get together for a con- 
structive, relaxing day of work 
and enjoyment," said Kinzer, 
while explaining the purpose for 
this event. He also mentioned 
that "showing the administration 
that students care about the cam- 
pus environment will giveusmore 
freedom in planning future spring 

Kinzer would like to see the 
day start off with a general clean- 
up of the campus. This would 
mainly involve picking up the 
trash that has accumulated all 
over the campus. 

- Then the workers would 
break up into smaller groups to 
work on small projects around 
the college. After the completion 
of these projects, there would be 
a barbecue and concert at West- 

The concert would be funded 
by the Contingency Fund of the 
ASCLC, if the Senate decides to 
go ahead with the project. The 
concert could cost anywhere 
from $600 to $1,000. If enough 

enthusiasm is generated for the 
work/concert day and if it ap- 
pears that a lot of students will 
be participating, the administra- 
tion may be willing to provide 
funds for part of the project. 

"Right now, the actual sched- 
ule of events is in the planning 
stage, but the (work/concert) 
day will most certainly be a re- 
ality," said Hagen. He added, 
"one major objective of the day 
will be to try to involve faculty 
and administration in some way." 

Kinzer agreed with Hagen. 
"It's important that the faculty 
and administrators be involved 
too," Kinzer said. 

When asked how the students 
would be split up into the small 
groups, Hagen answered, "there's 
a possibility that clubs or dorms 
may be involved as representative 
groups in this work day." 

What kind of projects would 
the ASCLC aim at? Hagen would 
like to see some trash pick-up, 
painting, and general area renova- 
tion be accomplished. However, 
none of the projects have been 
planned definitely as yet. "We're 
open to input as to what specific 
projects could be done," said 
Hagen . 

If anyone would like to dis- 
cuss this tentative work/concert 
day, please see President Kinzer 
or Vice-President Hagen in the 
ASCLC office located in the Stu- 
dent Union Building.

Witke brings 

Word from the East 

By Robyn Saleen 

CLC was honored last Thurs- 
day evening to have Ms. Roxanne 
Witke as guest lecturer. Ms. Witke, 
a graduate of Harvard who has 
also received degrees from Chi- 
cago University and U.C. Berk- 
eley, is currently a professor of 
Chinese studies at Columbia Un- 
iversity in New York. She has 
recently published a biography 
on Chiang Ch'ng, wife of former 
Chairman Mao of China. 

A Ja toAii 

OfKM d tit 

Next week's Artist/Lecture 
Series will host "Opera A La 
Carte"--the only professional Gil- 
bert and Sullivan repertory com- 
pany in the western United States. 
They have received rave reviews 
on their performances of the fa- 
mous teams' comic operas--so be 
sure you don't miss them! Mark 
your calendar for November 3. 
The show will begin at 8:15 in 
the gym. 

In her lecture, Ms. Witke dis- 
cussed Madame Mao, focussing 
primarily on rather complicated 
and involved Chinese history and 
showing Chiang Ch'ng's contrib- 
ution to it. Chiang Ch'ng, whose 
life has included being an actress, 
student, and propaganda journa- 
list, occuppied a very influencial 
position beside Chairman Mao. 
Her recent revolutionary activi- 
ties have caused her censorship in

Young is no novice! 

By Jane Lee 

The California Lutheran Col- 
lege Forensic team showed its 
strength in debate last Friday, 
Oct. 21, as sophomore Mark 
Young took second place in No- 
vice Lincoln-Douglas debate. The 
tournament, held at the Cal. State 
Los Angeles campus, included 
contestants from USC, Loyola, 
Cal. State Fullerton, Cal. Poly 
Pomona, Claremont and other 
prestigious four year schools. 

Young was accompanied by 
freshmen Mary Dalgleish and 
Brian Colfer, CLC's promising 
two-person novice team. Colfer 
and Dalgleish held an impressive 
record of two wins and two losses 
as they faced some of southern 
California's top novice teams. 

Dr. Beverly Kefley, the team's 
coach, was "really excited "about 
the award. She stated, "Mark had 
never competed in debate before. 
This was his very first tourna- 
ment." Young was up against an 
experienced debater from Cal. 
State University at Long Beach,

Pederson poses 
great possibilities 

By Cindy Saylor 

With dorm elections out of 
the way, the action at Pederson 
Hall is skyrocketing with interest 
and involvement by everyone. 
Steve Houghton, a freshman 
from Bakersfield, heads up the 
team of newly elected officers. 
"I was influenced to run because 
other people felt I could be a 
good President," offers Steve. 
His leadership will be supported 
with the talent, imagination, and 
ideas of Julie Thompson, Vice 
President; Ruben Guzman, Secre- 
tary/Treasurer; and Steve Yeck- 
ley. Social Chairman. 

Ideas must come easily to 
these four because they 've already 
begun work on many activities. 
This includes a Halloween Cos- 
tume Party scheduled for (well 
of course!) October 31st. This 

event will 'terrify' the residents to 
take part in the costume contest 
with prizes, bob for apples, or 
carve pumpkins. 

Guzman explained another 
upcoming event for Pederson. 
It's called "Ultimate" and it 
must describe the satisfaction 
you get by winning this game 
combining soccer, football, and 
rugby. Also, in regard to team 
sports, a coed pool tournament 
is planned. 

Other possibilities include a 
talent show, a trip to see the tap- 
ing of a television broadcast and 
inter-dorm competitions. 

It looks likePederson residents 
have successfully elected officers 
that will make this year one to 
look forward to and later, to re-

Moliere & CLC- 

A winning combination? 

By Maia Siewertsen 

The CLC Drama Department 
opened its 1977-78 theatre season 
with Moliere's delightful comedy, 
"The Imaginary Invalid," under 
the direction of Don W. Haskell 
with scenery designed by Janine 
Ramsey Jessup. 

The play was quickly paced, 
combining slapstick humor with 
outrageous comedy characteriza- 
tions. Since the play was short, 
it ran without an intermission, 
but was divided into three separ- 
ate acts. The three separations 
were aided by period music 
while the lights were up and the 
curtain down. 

The lead roles played by Rob 
Koon (Argan) and Gundhild 
Allen (Toinette) were very well 
done. Koon's hypochondriac- 
tyrant and Allen's nosy, witty, 
sassy chambermaid balanced to- 
gether into an effective duo. 

In lesser roles, all the per- 
formers did well, but something 
more must be said for Bruce 
Stevenson who stole the show in 
the second act. Perhaps it was his 
curling-ironed hair, or the pink 
ribbons on his boots, but as the 
dimwitted, father-dominated son, 

The ECHO staff met this 
week to form a solid wall of 
support to save the RED BARN.

when his eyes rolled around in 
fear because he forgot his "ora- 
tion" to his future stepmother- 
in-Iaw, or his face contorted in 
discomfort because of his awk- 
ward situation, the audience 
roared. Another effective small 
character was Tim Ledbetter's 
pasty-faced apothecary, Monsieur 
Fteurant. His deadpan face as he 
poured a goulish colored liquid 
was enough to cure the audience 
of any imaginary ailment. 

The costumes by Tina Krause 
were beautiful and blended in 
well with the period set design. 
"The Imaginary Invalid" is CLC's 
entry in the American College 
Theatre Festival, now in its tenth 
year of existence. If "Invalid" 
rates high enough in competition 
with other schools, it might win 
the opportunity to be performed 
at the John F. Kennedy Center 
for Performing Arts in Washing- 
ton, D.C.

ASCLC president soars high 

By Kathy Hi 

Imagine ; 

through the 

vast infinity 

i silver glider soaring effortlessly 
clouds twisting and turning in a 
of blue. Although carried by the 

glider may choose to drop off 
course and float freely to realms of uncharted 
sky. So it is with Craig Kinzer, ASCLC presi 
dent, whose four years of college has tauj_' 
him that society goes in one direction and car 
ries you along with it. However, when thai 
direction is no longer positive, you musl 
break way and hold to your own ideals, like 
the freely , soaring glider. 

Born on a farm in Virginia, Kinzer's fond- 
est childhood memories were playing tag in a 
near-by field and eating fresh fruit galore. In 
I960, the tall grasses and fruit trees were re- 


placed with tall buildings and endless freeway 
when his family moved to California. Yet, 
Kinzer never quite forgot the country and 
participates in soaring, wind-surfing, back- 
packing, and skiing whenever he gets the 
chance. Colorado is one of his favorite sites 
for back-packing and allows him to spend 
some time for reflection. "Time by myself is 
so precious," he explained. 

This January, during Interim IKinzer's 
love for nature will get a taste of the Orient. 
Several other students and he will travel 
with CLC professor Tseng to Japan. 

Although Kinzer is always busy now and 
entertains many plans for the future, he re- 
called he hasn't always lead an active life. 
"High School was basically just fooling a- 
round," he admitted. 

It was his father who first encouraged 
him to become an attorney. This gave Kin- 
zer a goal to aim for which would give him 
incentive to achieve good grades. At the 
same time, he always knew he could change 
his mind about what career he wished to 
pursue. Currently, Kinzer is a political science 
and business major, with a 3.9 GPA. 

"I am solely a renassaince man. I may not 
put all my time in one area, but I try to be a 
well-balanced person who dabs in a lot of 
areas," Kinzer stated. This is evident from the 
several jobs he's held as a government teacher 
for La Reina high school, lab technician at 
Rockwell International, assistant manager for 
a theater, youth counselor for the Conejo 
Park and Recreation district, and referee for 
YMCA athletic events. His most valuable job 
experience came about this summer when he 
worked for O. Melveny and Myers, the largest 
law firm in California. He assumed many re- 
sponsibilities of a law clerk, and acknowledged 
this experience which gave him second 
thoughts about going to law school. 

The "renassaince man" in Kinzer also ap- 
pears in his appreciation of the fine arts. Al- 
though MC Etcher's engravings make him Kin- 
zer's favorite artist, Kinzer still has room for 
Doonesbury cartoons by Trudeau. "He en- 


courages people to keep up on current 
"and satirizes much of campus life." 

Kinzer's favorite books include "The 
Myth of the Cave" by Plato and "The Plague" 
by Camus. He explained his attraction for 
"The Plague" in his interpretation of Camus' 
message as "Personal suffering in quest of per- 
sonal growth, and identity, for the benefit of 
society as a whole." 

Kinzer added that along the lines of Camus' 
thinking, "CLC is a college which helps you 
develop christian attitudes towards life, which 
may make you suffer a little when facing the 
outside world as you hold on to your values." 
He also admitted, "For the first two years 
here at CLC I thought I had made a mistake. 
Now I realize how beneficial the campus is." 
He elaborated by pointing out the sense of 


trust in others that CLC cultivates and the op- 
portunities one has in getting involved on 

By Kinzer's junior year, he yearned to get 
involved in CLC student government. Two of 
his motivations in running for ASCLC pres- 
ident was he felt the previous presidents were 
too conservative, while his spectrum of in- 
volvement gave him a good idea of representa- 
tion. He also saw the office as a fantastic 
learning experience. 

Kinzer also got involved in CLC athletics 
by playing football for four years. "Athletics 
is a very big part of the college education," he 
explained, "Your health and well-being 
should always be a top priority." He especial- 
ly advocated the comradery and trust which 

develops among team sports. 

With graduation approaching, Kinzer re- 
flected, "The future scares me less and less, 
I'm gaining more confidence in myself." He is 
examining three possibilities for his future. He 
may either attend business school, law school, 


"Success is finding a position in life which 
is beneficial to society, personally challenging, 
and which one can always enjoy and look for- 
ward to each day," concluded Kinzer. Right 
now, his glider seems to be soaring on a 
course to international business law, but he's 
always open to explore a vast horizon of new

Catalogues anyone? 

Resources in the garages? 

By Maia Siewertsen 

Have you taken a good look 
at your "Resources" catalogue 
lately? If not, perhaps you 
should dust it off and hold on 
to it while you read this edito- 
rial. While you are holding on 
to "Resources," take a quick 
jog down to Benson and Mattson 
houses. Then nonchalently walk 
into the garages and have a look 
at 95 CASES of leftover cata- 
logues, dating 74-75, 75-76, and 
77-78. Do 1 hear so whats? If 
so, let me do the leg and mathe- 
matic work for you. 

In 1974, CLC ordered 15,000 
copies of their "Resources" 
catalogues to be printed at the 
Taylor Publishing Company in 
Covina, at a cost of $7,470.74 
before tax. Then in 1975, 
American Yearbook Company 
in Visalia printed "Resources." 
Finally, in 1977, Penn Litho- 
graphic printed 13,588 copies 
of the catalogue at a cost of 
$8,185, the higher price due to 
the special die-cut cover that 
hiked the overall cost $385.00. 

The American Yearbook 
Company would not divulge the 
costs of printing "Resources" in 
1975, but by averaging out the 
other figures, the estimated cost 
of a catalogue would run over 
50 cents apiece, but for the 

sake of this editorial, I will use 
50 cents a copy. 

Now: there are 33 cases of 
1974-75 catalogues. There are 
73 copies per case. 33 times 73 
equals 2,409; there are 13 cases 
of 1975-76 catalogues at 72 
copies each case. 13 times 72 
equals 936; there are 49 cases 
of 1977-78 catalogues at 43 
copies per case. 49 times 43 
equals 2,107. The grand total: 
2,409 P lus936plus2, 107 equals 
5,452 copies. Now for the 
money: 5,452 copies times 50 
cents per copy equals $2,726.00. 
That is one student's tuition' 
sitting in garages at Benson and 
Mattson houses. 

I suppose this wouldn't be a 
very important revelation if CLC 
weren't in the hole over 
$200,000. Now, obviously the 
$2,726 doesn't make that big a 
dent in ail that deficit. But it is 
an example of waste, poor plan- 
ning and money mismanage- 
ment. If cutting corners is a 
way to clear up a deficit, what 
I don't understand is why CLC 
spent an extra $385 on a die- 
cut cover when money is tight 
and tuition has to be raised. 
And why so many leftovers? In 
1975, at the end of the year, 
why didn't someone see that 
there were over 2,000 copies of 


Portrait Priest: President 
Carter has found another 
way to save the taxpayers 
a little money. In the spirit 
of sacrifice, he has decided 
that he can do without 
those traditional oil por- 
traits of his cabinet mem- 

Earl Butz, who told one 
joke too many when he was 
secretary of agriculture, is 
about to have his portrait 
unveiled. His painting cost 
the taxpayers $5,750. But 
Carter's agriculture secre- 
tary. Bob Bergland, will 
have to settle for a plain 
old photograph that will 
cost less than $500. 

Staff Still Stable: Presi- 
dent Carter promised 
months ago to slash the 
enormous size of the White 

House staff. But the staff is 
still as big as ever. Of the 
approximately 600 mem- 
bers of Carter's staff, only 
14 occupy legally estab- 
lished positions. 

Each year, the White 
House asks Congress for 
staff funding. In the past, 
however, the money has 
been badly misused. For 
example, Richard Nixon 
used the cash to pay the 
White House plumbers. 

A bill in Congress would 
slash the size of the White 
House staff by about 70 
percent. Carter, our 
sources say, is worried 
about the proposed staff 

the catalogue left and try to 
order fewer the next time to 
avoid waste? I understand that 
catalogues are given out to 
thousands of people, and I can 
understand wanting to have 
enough to go around to as 
many potential students as 
possible, but 1 cannot under- 
stand an average of 1 ,800 extra 
catalogues per year for three 

So what do we do now? We 
can't return the leftover cata- 

logues, but we can learn from 
our mistakes, at least that is 
what my mother always told 
me. Whatever administrational 
branch is in charge of "catalogue 
orientation" should take a seri- 
ous look at their methods and 
policies. But then again, if 
things go on as they have, I 
wouldn't mind selling tickets 
and giving guided tours of the 
Mattson and Benson houses 
garages to regents, convocators 
and contributors to show a very 
small percentage but good ex- 
ample of our deficit. Let's see, 
id 5,452 people came through 
at 50 cents a ticket, that would 
come to $2726, just enough 
money to help out one of the 
various departments that have 
to cut back their budgets 33%.

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

Last week (10/21/77), Karen 
Tibbitts, Nutritionist of the CLC 
Cafeteria, responded to an arti- 
cle and an editorial written by an 
ECHO staff writer and I must 
protest against her personal at- 
tack on the reporter. 

Ms. Tibbitts states that "with- 
in these five paragraphs were five 
inaccurate statements, that I am 
aware of..." Why were these in- 
accuracies not pointed out and 
corrected by Ms. Tibbitts? If 
something in the article was in- 
correct, the incorrect informa- 
tion should have been identified 
and corrected. 

True, Ms. Tibbitts then went 
on to say that "however, consid- 
ering the accuracy of the prev- 
iously mentioned article by this 
same reporter, one does tend to 
quickly dismiss any other com- 
ments or opinions originating 
from her." Yes, one might tend 
to "dismiss" her "comments or 
opinions" if one is susceptible 
to believing arguments based on 
logical fallacy. In this case, the 
attempted destruction of the re- 
porter's credibility does not re- 
fute her statements-only facts 
can do that. 

Ms. Tibbitts completely ig- 
nored the issue when she at- 
tacked the credibility of Karen 
Coppage, ECHO staff writer. I 
was outraged that an administrat- 
or of the CLC Cafeteria would 

resort to such tactics when a sim- 
ple correction of the "five inac- 
curate statements " would have 
been all that was necessary. 

By Joel Gibson 

Dear Editor, 

As proud athletic supporters 
of our football team, we are de- 
lighted that we shall soon be 
competing in the National Asso- 
ciation of Intercollegiate Athle- 
tics playoffs. 

We are, however, disappoin- 
ted that the N.A.I. A. playoffs 
may be held on the East Coast, 
and unfortunately, such fans as 
ourselves would be unable to 
support our team because of 
the distance factor. 

We would like to propose 
that we, the Associated Students 
of California Lutheran College, 
work together in order to make- 
it possible that the N.A.I.A. 
playoffs be hosted here at the 
CLCMt. Clef Stadium. 

We realize that having the 
playoffs at CLC would propose 
a financial problem for the 
school. We believe that through 
fund raising by the students and 
with the help of the merchants 
and businessmen of the Ventura 
County, we could raise the funds 
necessary for this event. 

If not held here at CLC, the 
playoffs will most likely be held 
in West Virginia, So. Dakota, 
Pennsylvania, or Oregon. The 

cold temperatures and dreadful 
weather conditions of these 
locations will prove to be an 
extreme disadvantage for our 

Aside from having the "home 
stadium" advantage at CLC, the 
amount of National advertise- 
ment and publicity that the 
playoffs would bring to "Cal 
Lu", Thousand Oaks, and the 
surrounding area would be ex- 
tremely beneficial. 

One of the greatest benefits 
derived from having the playoffs 
at "home" would be the unified 
enthusiasm and spirit of the 
students, teachers, parents, and 
members of the community. 

If we the students of CLC 
could make it possible to host 
the NAIA playoffs, it would 
make the 1977-78 year most 
exciting and memorable.

Dear Editor, 

Ronnie Van Zant is dead. 
That may not mean much to 
many of you - certainly he did 
not have the fame Elvis or Bing 
had. So he has fewer mourners. 
But because I've been a devoted 
Lynyrd Skynyrd fan for a num- 
ber of years, his death - as well 
as the deaths of two other band 
members - in a plane crash last 
weekend hits me particularly 

hard. I'd like to tell you why. 

Lynyrd Skynyrd had a rowdy 
loud, guitar-dominated sound - 
and a reputation to match. They 
paid a lot of dues in honky- 
tonk bars in the South before 
they landed a recording con- 
tract, and it wasn't until last 
year, after four excellent al- 
bums, that they began to really 
get national attention. I couldn't 
understand why it took so long 
myself - just listen to Van Zant's 
songs on that very first album - 
"Free Bird", "Simple Man", 
"Tuesday's Gone" - not just 
hard driving rock music, but 
also entertaining and often 
meaningful lyrics. 

Their image was- well, rough, 
in a word. A violent brawling, 
heavy-drinking image, to put it 
bluntly. As Van Zant himself 
said, "There was a time when 
I'd get really drunk in this bar 
and say, 'Who is the meanest 
mother here? You got a date 
with me outside.' For the hell 
of it ..." A saint he wasn't. Yet, 
he also wrote songs that came 
down hard agaistst things like 
handguns - "Saturday Night 
Special" - and hard drugs - "The 
Needle and the Spoon". And 
from all indications lately he 
and the band were settling down- 
growing up, if you want to call 
it that • and leading a more 
"responsible" life-style. Again, 
Van Zant: "You know, the big- 
gest change ... that I've noticed 
is that for the first time I'm 
really thinking about thefuture. 
I'm 27 now and I've got a baby 
girl and I plan to stick around 
and watch her grow up...." 

Well, he's not going to get 
the chance. Which hits me very 
hard, I guess, because I think of 
all the times I've delayed doing 
what I really need/want to do, 
with the attitude that "there's 
Plenty of time." Maybe - but 
I'm sure Ronnie Van Zant felt 
the same way. The Lord works 
in mysterious ways indeed, and 
if there are areas in our lives we 
need to change to become more 
satisfied, maybe we should 
change them now and not wait 
for a tomorrow that may never 
"Well I've been riding a winning 

horse for a long, long time 
Yet somehow I wonder ... is this 

the end of the line? 
No one should take advantage 

of who they are 
No man has got it made - if he 

thinks he does he's wrong. 
Every mother's son better hear 

what I'm saying. 
Every mother's son will rise and 

fall someday." 

"Every Mother's Son" 
Lynyrd Skynyrd

Regals down Lady Lancers 
in first league win 

By Karen Hass 

The CLC Kegals Volleyball 
Team' came out on top last r-riday 
in games against the Cal Baptist 
Lady Lancers. 

The first game was close as 
the Regals struggled but couldn't 
luite make it and the Lancer 
beat them 15-13. Regals Sandi 
Enriques, a junior, and Merry 
Moore, a freshman, showed excel- 
lence in their spiking game 
throughout the night. 

The second game was played 
and finished with CLC dominat- 
ing the court in a 1 5-7 win. Dana 
Glover, sophomore Regal, made 
a well-planned spike to make the 
final score. 

The third game gave sopho- 
more Irene Hull and Carol Lobitz,. 
senior, a chance to show their 
timing and well planned shots to 
help out the 15-4 victory for 

The last game determining the 
3 out of 5 games win kept the 
same pace as the two previous 
ganes, 15-8 CLC. Diana Janke 
performed strongly and effec- 
tively, and the win makes the 
Regal record 2 and 6 overall, 
with a 1 and 5 league mark. 

There are six games left in the 
season, with four out of the six 
played at home.

Intramurals endures week 
of lopsided scores 

By Margaret Hartung 

CLFL came back after its holi- 
day slump in several close and 
hard-fought games on Friday 
evening, Oct. 21. 

The orange -shirted Crickets 
and The Force battled on the 
middle field at 4:00. The tie score 
was broken with a touchdown by 
Mark Thieme with six seconds 
left in the game resulting in the 
Crickets' win 13-7. 

Darth Vader's Raiders and the 
Brewers played another close 
game. The Brewers were trailing 
12-0 for most of the game and 
made a come-back at the end to 
make it a bare 12-7 victory for 
the Raiders. Two interceptions 
by Mark Vanlandingham high- 
lighted the game. 

A couple of crucial intercep- 
tions by Paul Trelstad in the first 
half of the game between Teddy's 
Bears, wearing yellow T-shirts, 

and Barnhart's Bombers set the 
tone for the game. The Bears 
won it 25-2. 

The Faculty Marauders experi- 
enced their first defeat at the 
hands of Sudden Death on the 
north field at 5:00. Two passes 
thrown by Frank Montana to Bill 
Moore for touchdowns, as well as 
a touchdown by Owen Stormo 
for the faculty were not enough 
to stop Sudden Death's 43-19 

The James Gang defeated the 
Munchics in another close game 
14-6. The Mean Machine started 
off with an 18-0 lead over 
Mooney's Moonies in the first 
half with 3 touchdown runs by 
Marty DeAnda. They kept the 
lead to defeat the Moonies 44-0. 

Ray's Robots and the Dead 
End Kids won over Cary's Coolies 
and the Militia by forfeit. 

Cal Lu just about guaranteed 
itself a spot in the post season 
playoffs by defeating a strong 
defensive team on their home 
field. The Kingsmen took advan- 
tage of an interception and a 
jumble to help them to a 14-6 
victory over California State Los 

The Diablos scored on their 
second possession of the game. 
CSLA went 85 yards in seven 
plays. In the scoring drive, run- 
ningback, Raymond Butler, scam- 
pered for 30 yards. On the next 
play Hector Gonzolaz burst 
through the line for 26 yards. 
Quarterback Rick Lovern threw 
a 22 yard toss to Dudley Stewart 
who was pulled down at the 
Kingsmen one yard line. Lovern 
took it over for the score. The 
extra point attempt failed. 

The whole first half the Lu 
was dominated by the Diablos 
defense. But it was the Kingsmen 
defense which provided the neces- 
sesary spark plug. With less than 
two minutes left in the half, on 
the fourth down, punter Dave 
Worley faked the punt and threw 
an interception to Craig Kinzer. 
Kinzer was in the process of being 
tackled when he handed the ball 
f»ff to Stevj Began, who raced up 
the sideline before being stopped 
at the twenty yard line. On first 
down, our quarterbadk, John 
Kindred, was sacked by the hard 
rushing Diablo line. The next play 
was a seven yard pass to Mike 
Hagen, which brought the ball to 
the nineteen yard line. On third 
down, Kindred found Hagen in 
the end zone, who made a diving 
catch to tie the score at six all. 
Brad Hoffman gave Cal Lu a one 
point lead when he split the up- 
rights with the point-after 

Again the Kingsmen capital- 
ized on a Diablo turnover. One 
minute into the second half, de- 
fensive tackle Dave Stanley re- 

Ramirez wins 

Six men represented CLC at 
the meet - three of whom finished 
in the top ten runners. The high- 
light of the event was junior Eddie 
Ramirez, who came in first place, 
but also set a new course record 
of 24.45 minutes. Outstandingly, 
this is the THIRD time Ramirez 
has broken his own record. The 

Country Meet at Chapman Col- 
ege in which eight teams com- 
peted. The schools represented 
were: Bakersfield, CLC, Biola, 
Fresno Pacific, Azusa Pacific, 
Chapman College, Cal State Do- 
minguez Hills, and L.A. Baptist. 

covered a fumble on the 32 yard 
line. Al Staie ran five yards on 
the first down. Cal Lu wascaught 
for holding which gave the team 
a second and fifteen on the 39. 
Kindred then connected to Hagen 
on the fifteen yard line, but a clip- 
ping penalty brought the ball back 
to the 30. Kindred connected to 
tight-end Don Craviotto who 
muscled his way down to the ten. 
Hagen came up with his fifth 
touchdown of the season when 
Kindred threw to Hagen alone in 
the endzone. 

The Lu's defense played tough 
in the second half. The Diablos 
threatened three times in the sec- 
ond half only to come up short on 
all attempts. Craig Kinzer inter- 
cepted his second pass of the 
game. The Diablos safety Chris 
Wagner intercepted another pass 
and returned it to the CLC 20 
yard line. On a crucial series, Ray- 
mond Butler was stopped at the 
line of scrimmage on the twelve 
yard line. Dan Buckley and Gary 
Trumbauer teamed up to make 
the stop. Don Gudmunson swat- 
ted the ball away from a Diablo 
receiver in the end zone on third 
down. Dan Buckley intercepted a 
Lovern pass in the end zone to 
end a Diablo threat. Steve Bogan 
also intercepted a pass. He inter- 
cepted it on the eighteen with 
3:01 left in the game. CSLA got 
the ball with less than a minute I 
on the clock, but were unable to 
produce a score. 

On the season, John Kindred 
has completed 88 out of 133 
passes Tor nearly a thousand 
yards. His percentage is a remark- 
able 66%. The primary targets are 
sophomore receiver Mike Hagen 
and senior slot back Harry Hed- 
rick. Hagen, who has caught 28 
passes on the season leads Hedrick 
in total yards by nine. Al Staie is 
averaging 6.3 yards per carry and 
has amassed 494 total yards. The 
other running back, Terry Hol- 
den, is averaging 4.4 yards per 

another one 

other two CLC runners finishing 
in the top ten were Dave Helge- 
son, finishing fifth, and Dan Dav- 
ies, finishing seventh, with 26.07 
and 26.23, respectively. 

Bakersfield, who won the 
meet, also had three runners plac- 
ing in the top ten. Biola, who 
placed third in the meet, had one 
runner in the top ten. The final 
score of three leading teams was: 
Bakersfield - 46 points, Cal Luth- 
eran - 54 points, and Biola - 84 

The next cross country meet 
will be this Saturday at 1 1 :00 at 
La Mirada Golf Course.

Kinzer presents student views 

By Kathy Hitchcox 

Craig Kinzer, ASCLC president, spoke on hehalf of the stu- 
dents during the Regents meeting Oct. 28, 29 and 30. Several 
important issues were discussed and decided upon concerning 
the Learning Resource Center, depression of Olsen Road, the 
land celling w*m w. ».(;>,, <ti. J n\.\i >ci'j iaijc in uiU 
addition, Kinzer's appointment to the Regents' planning com- 
mittee, which oversees the growth of the college, marks the 
first time in CLC history an ASCLC president has been voted 
onto a Regents' committee other than Student Affairs/Spiritual 
Life. This is significant since "Being on the planning committee 
just gives us so much more representation,' explained Kinzer. 

Throughout the Regent's meeting Kinzer noted, "The Re- 
gents are very considerate of the student body and generally 
very receptive to the students' concerns as I presented them." 

After examining pro-forma financial statements concerning 
the Learning Resource Center and projecting the expenditures 
for the next five years, the Regents decided to move ahead 
with this project. Concerning whether or not Olsen Road should 
be graded, Kinzer presented the students' view that "Grading 
Olsen road would destroy the distinct unity of the campus and 
pleasant liberal arts college identity." All of the Regents seemed 
to agree and voted to depress Olsen road, which would "Pre- 
serve the quiet, aesthetic, natural environment," Kinzer ex- 

On Oct. 9, Kinzer was informed of the Regents' plans to 
possibly sell parcels of college land. In order to avoid a situa- 
tion similar to last year when college land was sold without 
student knowledge, Kinzer took the responsibility to persuade 
the regents in-charge to change their policy of confidentiality. 

the students about the possible selling of land. Accordingly, 
Thursday night, Oct. 27, Kinzer sent out a news memo to each 
student, detailing the situation. Memos were both hand-deli- 
vered to each door and placed in every mail-box. The memo 
described the possible sale of three houses and twelve residen- 
tial lots, eight lots from Matson House to Conejo dorm, and 
four lots across from Moutclef stadium. 

Kinzer emphasized the necessity of student input and invited 
comments and suggestions. "I would like to thank students for 
input concerning the Learning Resource Center and selling of 
CLC land," explained Kinzer, "I received an excellent response 
even with such short notice." 

Students primarily expressed the attitude that selling any 
CLC land would be detrimental to the campus. As a result, 
Kinzer concluded, " I do not want them to sell any of the lots 
we own or the three houses." 

In the first place, Kinzer noted that the eight lots in back 

of the new dorms serve a a buffer zone to the homeowners.

This month on the 16,17

consisting of ten people will 
visit CLC. These ten people,

involve interviews with stu- 
dents, faculty, administrators 
and staff. The evaluative com- 
mittee will also visit classes, 
the cafeteria and the library. 
As a basis for their study, the 
committee reads the schools 
own evaluation report, along 
with the college catalogue 
and faculty handbook. The 
committee also studies the 
financial situation and budget 
of the college. It is from this 
rather extensive survey that 
the committee then offers

CLC has'traffic control' 

By Tom Perez 

Do you own a motor- 
driven vehicle? Well, if V ou 
do, then you should know 
about CLC's Traffic Control. 
Paulmar Olson, head of securi- 
ty, is in charge of our road- 
ways here at CLC. "We (se- 
curity) are here to help them 
(CLC students)." explained 
Mr. Olson, emphasizing that 
the rules are nere to protect 
our rights. Also that a portion 
of the money paid for the 
parking registration fee goes 
to provide paved, lighted areas 
on campus and nightly securi- 
ty patrol of all campus streets 

and parking areas 

Mr. Olson gave this report- 
er a copy of the rules and 
regulations (you can obtain a 
copy of your own at facilities) 
to inform the CLC com- 
munity. Tickets will be issued 
by Traffic Control for traf- 
fic violations, such as im- 
proper parking, loud pipes, 
speeding on campus, and 
other types of poor driving 
behavior. All city and state 
laws apply as well as those 
of California Lutheran Col- 
lege. Examples are: no park-

Known to most any CLC 
student living on campus is 
the fact that the dorms are 
crowded, with as many as five 
students sharing a single suite. 
The housing problem is cre- 
ated by two main factors: 
An increase in incoming stu- 
dents and retention of con- 
tinuing students. 

This year is the first time 
that the incoming Freshmen . 
Class at CLC has increased, 
resulting in more students 
entering the school than leav- 
ing. Also, the retention of 
students who lived off-cam- 
pus last year and have this 
year moved back on campus 
has increased. The reason for 
this, according to Dean Krag- 
thorpe, "Is not only econo- 
mic, but living on campus is 
more humanized, because of 
the Residential Advisors". 
Kragthorpe continues, "The 
market outside is not only 
non-competitive but the phy- 
sical and social environment 
of the dorms is good". 

The housing problem has 
several possible solutions, 

which are listed not in order 
of priority or with any finali- 
ty, they are only suggestions 
that will be discussed later by 
the Administration. One pro- 
posed solution is to put five 
Freshman students per suite. 
Another is the converting of 
certain areas on campus to 
living space for students. 
Abolishing the residency re- 
quirement for sophomores is 
another idea, but Dean Krag- 
thorpe is "opposed to it", 
because he feels "living on 
campus is an integral part of 
a college career". An obvious 
proposal is an increase in not 
only McAfee Apartments 
contracts, but other contracts 
as' well. Finally, students 
could be placed in the local 
communitv homes. 

These proposals are not 
definite. Any student who 
has an idea or proposal about 
what could be done to house 
the students is encouraged to 
contact Dean Kragthorpe, 
' Melinda Riley, or any of his 
or her staff members.

that rejected the Senate pro-

Congressmen said the Ameri-

the concert is the best 
choice because more students 
would be interested in it and 
even if we couldn't get a 
big-name band this year, it 
would set a precedent for the 
years to come, and a better 
event in the future."

should replace that land, to 
have some place with trees, 
grass and shade to relax and

that to accomplish some of

Paul Griffin: "A major 
concert at CLC would be 
rather impractical since in

it would be necessary to sell 
tickets to the general public. 
We simply don't have the 
facilities to accomodate such 
a large event. I would, 
however, be in favor of a 
spring holiday with perhaps 
a less popular rock band. If 
a major rock band decided to 
do a concert for a small 
fee that would be fine, 
but the chances of that hap- 
pening are very slim."

Arts exemplify goals

Nearly forty people made 
the trip to Palm Desert last 
Tuesday, October 26, to re- 
present California Lutheran 
College in an hour long pro- 
gram for the American Luth- 
eran Church Pastor's Retreat. 
President Mark Mathews ad- 
dressed 250 pastors represent- 
ing the seven states of the 
South Pacific District, in the 
Banquet Room of the Erawan 
Gardens Hotel. 

The presentation was given 
in an attempt to acquaint the 
ALC church leaders to the 
goals of CLC and to urge their 
support. There were four 
other parts to the program 

following Mathews' address. 
The Speech and Drama De- 
partment and the Music De- 
partment were represented. 

An oral interpretation of 
Sheldon Harnick's play "The 
Apple Tree" was performed 
by members of the Forensic 
team, Mark Young and Jane

duced four members of the 
cast of Moliere's play entitled

Secondly, the four lots between the football field and the new 
dorms may be utilized as a student park. This park project, 
which is aimed for completion by April '78, is both a common 
goal of the student body and a one-thousand dollar a year 
tax exemption. However, to build the park, the ASCLC must 
have permission from the area's homeowner's association. 
Dr. Kallas, religion professor at CLC, is currently the president 
of this association. 

Kinzer entertained a motion to have the planning commit- 
tee examine this issue more completely and then report back 
to the Regents. After some discussion, the Regents voted 
unanimously in favor of the motion. Next, Kinzer was voted 
onto the Planning Committee. Altogether, the selling of CLC 
land remains an open issue. 

Kinzer also expressed the student concern over the ihi 
hundred dollar raise in tuition next year. He told the Regents, 
"Without this extra scholarship money due to Governor 
Brown's veto, a large number of students feel they will be un- 
able to afford CLC next year." He further pointed out that a 
new library would be useless to students who were forced to

Also in the realm of financing, Kinzer spoke against special 
dorm pricing, where each dorm would be priced differently. 
"Uorm-living should be scheduled in matters of friends and 
classes. This is more preferable than rich in one dorm and poor 
in the other." Kinzer stated. 

Finally Kinzer initiated a question into why students were 
not informed of the results of their teacher evaluation forms

Mundtus cycle through their 1977 summer tour of Southern Germany. 


Buth pedals through history 

By Brenda Peters 

Dr. Wilfred Buth began bicycling ten years 
ago after his wife underwent major surgery. 
During her recovery, the doctor said to do 
some kind of exercizing in which bicycling 
was one of the athletics he encouraged. They 
continued cycling after his wife had completely 

"We feel it keeps us both in better shape, 
that's why we keep it up. When we got interes- 
ted in cycling because of doctors' orders, we 
were also interested in joining a bicycle club," 
says Dr. Buth. 

Since there wasn't a bicycle group in this 
area at that time, Dr. and Mrs. Buth organized 
one themselves and called it the "Westlake 
Wheelmen". They've done extensive traveling 
as a group. Last year they toured for three 
weeks from Monterey to San Diego and visited 
all of the California missions along the way. 

In June of 1976, both Dr. and Mrs. Buth 
rode in the Senior Olympics in the Irvine area. 
"In that particular competition my wife won a 
gold medal in her age group," says Dr. Buth, 
"but this summer was the big one. Seven of us 
in the bicycle group went to Germany. We bicy- 
cled from Cologne to the Rhine River to the 
border of Switzerland." 

While in Germany, a local newspaper re- 
portei noticed and interviewed them. They 
were unique because they were riding in pro- 
fessional gear: helmets, gloves, shorts, club 
jackets, cleated shoes, and riding tandems 
which are rare in Europe. 

The primary reason why Dr. and Mrs. Buth 
went to Germany this summer was because he 
is trying to develop a tour course for the 
summer session in 'Reformations of German 
History '. He hopes, if not next summer, the 
following summer, to develop a course made 
for students who are interested in studying 
history in the summer and touring Germany 
at the same time, 

"Since 1972 I have been the recipient of 
Post Doctorite Travel and Study Grants. These 
grants have made it possible for me to travel 
all over Europe from Norway to Scotland to 
the southern tip of Spain, to Greece as well as 
Jerusalem. This summer made it possible for 
me to go to Europe to explore for this tour 

group I'm trying to organize. I felt that before 
starting the course, it would be wise for me to 
ride through the area first." Dr. Buth admits 
that was a long trip, but a very valuable 
one "because I have not only seen a lot of 
things that enrich my own understanding, but 
I also think it makes my discussions of these 
areas of my classes much livlier." 

Over the years, Dr. Buth has become a long 
range cyclist. He has covered most of Califor- 
nia from Monterey to the Mexican border. 
Repeatedly, he has done 100 miles a day, and 
300 miles twice. Commenting about his bright 
orange jacket with black stripes, Dr. Buth 
said, "If students see me on campus with vari- 
ous patches on my jacket, they might be 
interested in knowing that the patches refer 
to my 100 and 200 mile rides. The patch with 
number two on it doesn't mean that I'm in 
the second grade! It means that I've completed 
the double century for the second time."

History Department, garbed in professional 
cycling gear.

participated in Championship 
Persuasion and Split-Duo 

while Brian Colfer entered 
Impromptu, Extemporaneous

Split-Duo Interpretation 
was an event unique to the 
Biola Invitational. A member 
of one college was paired 
with a member from another 
and were given a play cutting

Preparation time was given 
and it was an excellent way 
to meet participants from 
other institutions. 

The entire squad is pre- 
paring for the next meet when 
debators and individual event 
speakers alike will head for 
Cal. State Northridge on Nov. 
18 and 19. With our unified 
and versatile forensic organi- 
zation, California Lutheran 
College will make its mark on 
the tournament circuit.

Homecoming 1977 is now 
over. The CLC alumni who 
came back to see their alma 
mater have left again. But 
some of our alumni left their 
impressions of coming back 
to CLC during the Homecom- 
ing Dappe on Saturday night. 

Debi Davis (Homecoming 
Queen. 1976) -"It'sreallv fun 
to come back and see people.. 
The friends I made here were 
really special and all that 
mushy stuff." 

Ruth Andersen - "I really 
miss the people a lot but I 
don't miss the pressures that 
school seems to bring. It's 
neat to see how people are 
growing and changing." 

Larry Speiser - "This 
school seems to have expand- 
ed its facilities greatly but I 
hope it continues its small 
college flavor." 

Arnie Conrad - "I do"' 1 
feel I've been away long 
enough to feel the break but 
it's great to see all the old 

Another Homecoming has 
come and gone. Next year, at 
Homecoming 1978, this 
year's seniors will be the 
alumni returning to CLC 
Hopefully, their comments 
next year will continue to be 
the same, positive statement 5 
about our college, CLC. 

January* interim 
°ffers travel 

B VJeffBargmann 

The diversity of this year's 
"\terim travels is tremendous, 
with some groups traveling to 
London, others to Peru, and 
still others to Eastern Asia. 
Although not every one of 
jne interim tours have been 
'nalized, the majority of 
tneni appear to be some 

Don Haskell and Richard 
Jdams will be leading the 
Ineatre Tour to Washington, 
D.C. and New York, as well 
« London and Paris. The stu- 
dents on this twenty-eight 
day tour will see approxi- 
mately thirty theatre perfor- 
mances, which /according to 
Haskell, "will include both 
matinees and evening perfor- 
mances". "They (the stu- 
dents) will also visit every 
major museum in Washing- 
ton, New York, and London/' 
continued Haskell. While in' 
London and Paris, the stu- 
dents will also visit major 
television studios. Students 
will meet each morning, either 
going on a group trip or 
being free to spend the day 
as they like. The cost of this 
trip will range from $680.00 
to about SI, 200. 

Another planned interim 
excursion is entitled "British 
Heritage", and will be headed 
by Al Leland of the Education 
Department. This is also a 
twenty-eight day plan begin- 
ning January 1, 1978, when 
the chartered flight departs 
from Los Angeles and heads 
to London. The "course" 
begins with students visiting 
Cambridge college, then con- 
tinuing on to historic sites 
such as Edinburgh, Winder- 
mere, Stratford-on-Avon, 
Oxford, and finally London. 
This is only a brief glimpse of 
what this tour will offer. 

Jerald Slatum will be lead- 
ing his group of about twelve 
students to Peru and Bolivia. 
The purpose of this trip is to 
study the cultures of the Inca 
and Tishuanaco. In Bolivia, 
the cultures circling Lake Ti- 
ticaca will be under the stu- 
dents' examination. 

Dr. Robert Stanford will 
be leading a group of students 
this interim on a trip entitled 
"Alpine Live-In". There are 
many European cities on the 
agenda of this tour, including 
East and West Berlin, Ham- 
burg, Heidelberg, Munich, 
and Innsbruck, to name a 
few. The cost of this not-to- 
be-forgotten Interim trip is 
approximately $1,100,00. 

Leonard Smith and Wil- 
fred Buth together will lead a 
group of students through 
Greece and Italy. Students 
will study various cultures 
such as the Greek, Roman 
and Milan during the Ancient, 
Medieval and Renaissnace 
periods of history. Not only 
will the tour cover many 
more cities and sites than 
mentioned here, but it will 
visit many of the more popu- 
lar archeological areas, muse- 
ums, and art centers in the 
cities they will visit. 

'Talkback' for 
student input 

By Maia Siewertsen 

KRCL's "Academic Talk- 
back" is a student oriented 
interview show, where listen- 
ers can call into the station 
and speak with the guest being 
interviewed. The show airs 
on KRCL on Thursdays at 
7:00 pm and is hosted by 
Carol Willis, whose guests 
have already included Dr. 
Richard Adams, chairman of 
the Speech and Drama De- 
partment, Frank Montana, 
Head Resident of McAfee, 
and Dr. Garafalo, who is 
heading the Urban Semester 
beginning in February. 

Currently, Carol is hosting 
a series of interviews concern- 
ing the ASCLC. Her first 
guest on this subject was Craig 
Kinzer, who was on the show 
November 3. The next two 
shows will also deal with the 
ASCLC. After those shows, 
on November 24, Don Hossler 
will be Carol's guest, and then 
on December 1, Jan Swanson 
will be interviewed on the 
women's programs here at 

CLC Equestrian Team 
Takes the prize! 

By Robyn Saleen 

Cal Lutheran's Equestrian 
Team is feeling very pleased 
with themselves at the mo- 
ment. And they certainly have 
reason to feel this way. 

This Sunday was Cal Lu- 
theran's First Annual Inter- 
collegiate Horse Show. The 
show, in which seven teams 
from different California 
Colleges were represented, 
was also open to any other 
equestrians desiring to com- 

Cal Lutheran, who won 
the show, had an impressive 
score of 92 points. What 
makes this score impressive is 
that the next highest score 
was held by Fresno State 
College which placed second 
with a score of 42 points. 

In all the classes of the 
show, which ranged from 
Western Pleasure and Equita- 

tion to Trail Horse, and then 
to Jumping and Showman- 
ship, the CLC team usually 
had riders place in the top 
four positions. CLC Eques- 
trienne Nancy Richter was 
very happy about the perfor- 
mance of the team. "It was 
a lot of fun and all the team- 
mates were really helpful. 
They gave a lot of support 
and encouragement - and 
that kept you going." 

Next week, the Eques- 
trian Team will compete in 
another Intercollegiate show 
at Cal Poly Pomona. Under- 
standably, the team is really 
looking forward to the show. 
According to Ms. Richter, 
"It looks like we're going to 
have a successful year." And 
from the looks of last Sun- 
day, she could very well be 

Good job team!

Student help needed 

Could you find one hourof 
your time each week to give 
to someone who needs your 
help? Many residents of the 
Thousand Oaks Convalarium 
need the reassurance that is 
given by contact with younger 
adults. The staff at the con- 
valarium have designed a 
weekly schedule of activities 
for the residents in which 
you can participate. If you 
are more suited to one-on-one 
relationships, there is a need 
for that also. Some would 
like to talk, some to sing, 
some to have Scripture or 
other material read to them. 

Lorrie Mercier, the Activi- 
ties Director at the conva- 
larium, will answer any ques- 
tions or make appointments 
for visits. Her phone number 
is 492-2444. If you'd fee( 
awkward going over alone, or 
you'd like some more ques- 
tions answered before making 
a decision, call Joy Hanson 
of the Lord of Life Lutheran 
Church's (campus congrega- 
tion) ministry committee. 
Joy can be reached at 
492-6349. She will be able to 
match a convenient time for 
both you and someone else 
to make the ten minute walk

CLC-TV has potential 

By Maia Siewertsen 

"The primary purpose of 
television here at CLC is to 
give students practice in de- 
veloping skills in producing 
live T.V. material," says Jay 
Libby, director of television 
at CLC. 

So far, T.V. is most obvi- 
ous to students at football 
games. A common sight at 
away games is the brown tele- 
vision van parked near the 
stands with a camera on top 
of it, or the mini camera held 
by a student walking back 
and forth trailing a long black 

But what happens to the 
film after the game is over? 
Not only is it used by the 
football team to watch the 
game again and learn, but it 
is replayed on channel 8 on 
the Sunday after the game. 

Football is only one exam- 
ple of television usage here at 
CLC, though, says Libby. 
Other sports are videotaped, 
such as volleyball, soccer, 
basketball and tennis. Besides 
sports, the television studio 
videotapes lectures, classes 
and experiments for the music 
department, the education, 
anthropology, psychology 
and sociology departments, 
all as a free service just for 
the asking. 

Libby is pleased he can do 
so much for the various de- 
partments. "If we had to 
charge for our services, we 
wouldn't have as much busi- 
ness. They would spend their 
money elsewhere." Despite 
all the business, the Television 
Studio is in need of better 
equipment. "Ninety percent 
of my time is spent in repair- 
ing equipment when it should 
be spent in the prduction of 
student and departmental 
material. We are at least five 
years outdated in our equip- 
ment in reliability and con- 
temporary electronic equip- 

ment," comments Libby. 
"CLC has a positive commit- 
ment towards television be- 
cause they hired me, someone 
who can do television pro- 
duction. What we need are 
facilities to back up that 

Jay Libby received his 
education and television train- 
ing at Chapman College here 
in California, where he was 
the instigator of their audio 
visual department and classes 
that are now available. After 
receiving a 8. A. in English 
(there was no media degree 
at the time), he went to Chris- 
tian Theological Seminary in 
Indianapolis. Half-way 

through the seminary pro- 
gram, Libby became a teacher 
instead of a student. 

"My interest in the semin- 
ary diminished and my inter- 
est in television peaked," ex- 
plained Libby. He not only 
taught television at the semi- 
nary, but produced numerous 
church-related programs for 
the NBC affiliate in that city, 
programming for local 
churches and other non-profit 

Libby cannot emphasize 
the need for new facilities 
and equipment enough. T.V., 
however, isn't cheap. It would 
cost an estimated $65,000 to 
update the T.V. Studio to 
color film and color support 
equipment. But, Libby points 
out, "Better facilities will 
attract more students to CLC 
in this area," than does the 
fact that our black and white 
film is practically obsolete. 

"Television has vast poten- 
tial at CLC, and its growth is 
only limited by the effort 
put into it and the people 
who want to get involved with 
it," says Libby. Then he adds 
with a smile, "But I think 
it's worth it."

Frank Montana, McAfee's Head Resident, is perhaps 
more importantly, CLC's Residence Counselor. This part- 
time position was created last year a* a "process of changing 
the image of the RA's," and to upgrade their training. Mon- 
tana feels that his position is that of a "facilitator of growth 
in a living setting.'' 

As the Residence Counselor Montana is in charge of the 
class taken by the RA's, Practicuni In Psychology, a one credit 
class held once a week, which in essence, puts them in touch 
with a variety of resources that they, in turn, can relay to 
students seeking help. Second semester, this class will touch 
upon counseling, helping and developmental theories, along 
with leadership training and decision making. 

To become an RA, one must go through a "complete and 
thorough screening process," according to Montana. In Feb- 
ruary, applicants need three letters of recommendation. Dean 
Kragthorpe, Sherry Richards, Melinda Riley, along with 
Hossler, Montana and the Head Residents conduct interviews 
to find out past experiences and the reasons the applicants 
are applying to be RA's. Later, the possible Resident Advisors 
are put into a group situation and videotaped on the way 
they work together and try t solve the problem. Finally, the 
twenty-one RA's are chosen and put to work. Montana has 
been out to talk to each RA already this year to see how they 
are handling their respective dorm situations so far. "I feel 
really good about the RA's this year." He feels they're all 
doing a great job, because none of them are power-hungry or 

Eric Kaelberer, one of Pederson's RA's this year, was asked 
if there were any specific qualities a person needed to be an 
effective Resident Advosor. "| think you need to care," he 
replied. He believes the only way to handle people is to be 
genuinely concerned or else they'll see right through it. "People 
are the neatest thing that there is." Did the $700 off tuition 
cost have any influence on his decision to become an RA? He 
felt that it was nice, but the main reason was because "people 
fascinate me." Getting to know people, Kealberer feels, is the 
biggest benefit of being an RA. The roles of an RA, according 
to Kealberer, are in order; 1) acounselor, 2) a resource person, 
and 3) rule enforcement/maintainence. When asked if he had 
anything else to add, he replied, " I want to thank Pederson 
for making it such a good year so far." 

TeriSlothower.the Resident Advisor for the Benson House, 
went through a slightly different process. There were no inter- 
views for the house RA's, but instead, the house residents 
voted themselves for the RA of their choice by majority ruling. 
Slothower stated that the money in no way influenced her 
decision to become an RA. Her reason was to learn more 
about what the school had to offer, a type of "self-awareness 
experience." She feels that a general caring feeling for the 
student body, along with responsibility, are the qualities 
looked for in an RA. She feels her duties are the same as all 
the Resident Advisors; meetings, maintainance, counseling 
and providing study tips and the like. Slothower said that the 
class, Practicum in Psychology, was very beneficial to her. 
"For me, it's self-improvement." 

When asked if she would like to be an RA in a dorm, she 
replied, "J have a preference where I am ... Benson House is 
the best place to live on campus." 

Save $$$, 
and cans 

The final December col- 
lection date for the Senior 
Class Recycling drive is draw- 
ing near. So, Senior Class of- 
ficers are urging all ecology- 
minded students and faculty 
to save their newspapers and 
aluminum cans for the drive 
for which all proceeds are to 
be used for the Senior Class 
gift to the school. 

Recycled goods can be 
dropped off either at Kramer 
3 or m conveniently located 
boxes in each dorm. 

Any questions?? Call Cat 
at 492-6369 and, in the 
words of the Class, "Save, 
save, save!!" 

Is your career choice 
a 'Life Sentence'? 

By Bill Moore 

I have this recurring dream 
(or is it a nightmare?) that 
too many students see the 
area of career "choice" as a 
matter of wandering from 
class to class within the con- 
fines of the institution for 
four years, then having the 
"warden" hand them their 
sentence - "forty years to life 
as an accountant/teacher/soc- 
ial worker/whatever." Is it any 
wonder that seniors approach 
their graduation date with a 
mixture of fear and loathing 
plus perhaps some exiclte- 
ment (depending on their 
plans)? That they see it more 
as an "imprisonment" rather 
than a "release"? Is it any 
wonder that many students 
avoid the whole area of ca- 
reer planning as if it were 
plague-infested? So what's 

the solution to this image 
problem? I'm not sure, but 
I'd like to suggest an alterna- 
tive way of approaching the 

First, I think you have to 
clarify what you mean when 
you refer to "career" and 
"career choice." What exact- 
ly IS a career? The tradition- 
al concept was that you went 
to school for X number of 
years, then came to a point 
where you made your choice 
of a career path and strolled 
into the sunset, presumably 
happily ever after - steady 
job, 2.2 kids, a two-car gar- 
age and a split-level home - 
the American dream. That 
was a very static, cut-and- 
dried view of career choice, 
and even assuming that it in 
fact once worked like that 
(which is debatable), we see 
it now as much more of a dy- 

Music department presents 'Elijah' 

Mendelssohn's mighty 
masterpiece "Elijah" will be 
presented by a 125-voice mas- 
sed choir and full orchestra 
by the Music Department for 
their fall concert on Saturday, 
November 12, at 8:15 p.m. 
and again on Sunday, No- 
vember 13, at 3 p.m. in the 

Dr. Robert Zimmerman, 
Chairman of the Music De- 
partment, will direct the 
production which will utilize 
the All College Choir, the 
Concert Choir, selected 
voices from the faculty and 
alumni, and the Concert 
Orchestra augmented by 
members of the CLC Conejo 

Dr. Gen Muser, Associate 
Professor of Music and vocal 
instructor, will rehearse the 
solo voices, and Prof. Elmer 
Ramsey, Director of the Con- 
cert Orchestra and Musical 
Director of the CLC Conejo 
Symphony, will prepare the 
orchestra according to Dr. 

"Elijah", considered one 
of the greatest works by 
Mendelssohn, is based on the 
Book of Kings and centers on 
several episodes in the life of 
the Old Testament Prophet. 

Medelssohn spent a de- 


i the 


and rearranging episodes in 
the life of Elijah for dramatic 
effect. He wrote most of the 
libretto and some of his finest 
work is , contained in the 
choruses and arias. 

In the setting of the Ora- 
torio, Ahab is King of Isreal 
and a source of continual 
anxiety to the Lord, who used 
the prophet Elijah to convey 
his messages to the unruly 
and evil King. 

Dr. Zimmerman has de- 
cided to use four Elijahs for 
the solo work rather than 

"We could easily have 
chosen one soloist as Elijah," 
he commented, "but we have 
a number of excellent male 
voices and we want each of 
them to have an opportun- 
ity to perform. We also feel 
that concerts such as this are 
a tremendous learning exper- 
ience for our students, so we 
have tried to share the solo 
work as much as possible." 

Singing the Elijah roles 
will be baritones Keith But- 
enshon, Hemet junior; Ted 
Ayers, Prescott, AZ sopho- 
more; Mark Beasom, Clare- 
mont senior;and Jim Nelson, 
San Diego senior. 

Heard in the part of Oba- 

diah will be tenors Mathew 
Bitteti, West Covina sopho- 
more; Alan Rose, Simi Valley 
junior; and Greg Egertson, La 
Pal ma senior. Egertson will 
also sing the role of Ahab. 

Featured in a special duet 
with chorus will be soprano 
Lisa Lemm, Thousand Oaks 
sophomore and alto Carol 
Lobitz, Los Angeles senior. 
Angel solos will be sung by 
altos Debbie Thompson, 
Spokane, WA junior; Joan 
Reeve, Pasadena senior; Kar- 
en Rommereim, Simi Valley 
sophomore, and Lisa Lemm. 

Other women soloists in- 
clude Carrie Stflzner, Simi 
Valley sophomore, as the 
widow; Cathy Borst\ Phoenix, 
AZ sophomore, as a youth, 
and Rhonda Paulson, Lewis' 
ville.TX senior, as the queen 
and Bonnie Pinkerton, Foun' 
tain Valley junior, will sing a 
special air. 

Tickets for the Elijah 
production will be $2 per 
person for adults and $| for 
children. CLC identification 
cards will be honored. The 
box office will be open Fri- 
day afternoon (November II) 
from I to 5 p.m. and reserva- 
tions may be made by callino 
(805) 492-3870.

lamic, ever-changing process- 
: series of choices rather than 
i single choice. This process 

begins early, perhaps even as 
early as the primary and jun- 
ior high grades, but it is a 
lifelong process. If you ever 
stop, you've retired, and 
many people mentally retire 
long before they are 65, 
which is unfortunate. You 
should constantly be evalua- 
ting what you are doing in 
terms of how satisfied you 
are, how involved you are, 
and where you can go from 
there. Am I using the skills 
I want to use and doing the 
things I want to do? If not, 
how can I change to better 
meet my personal needs? It 
should really be called "ca- 
reering, "not career, to show 
that it is a process - you 
never arrive, but the fun is in 
the chase. 

If you see career in this 
light, then, how can it be 
viewed as a "life sentence"? 
So many of us agonize over 
this decision because we see 
ourselves as capable of doing 
a number of different kinds 
of work, and all we see in 
having to make a choice is 
the inevitable fact that in 

choosing one we are closing 
off all the others. That is 
true enough - but surely there 
is some comfort in under- 
standing that careering is a 
process in which changes are 
entirely possible. Right now, 
in fact, the average number 
of career changes is between 
2 and 3, with the number of 
job changes averaging about 
7 or 8. And that is the wave 
of the future, my friend, be- 
cuase the world of work 
changjng faster all of the timi 

More on that topic later, 
perhaps. The point here is 
that the solution, as I see it, 
to this whole business is to 
be able to accept the healthy 
tension between COMMIT- 
NESS. You MUST make 
a commitment to a certain 
path when you graduate, and 
that commitment will most 
likely involve the giving up 
of certain other possibilities. 
But understand that this 
choice, as with successive ca- 
reer choices, is a tentative 
one subject to change at any 
moment based upon your 
life experiences. How are 
those choices made? Can you 
handle the ambiguities of this 
view? Stay tuned-l'll discuss 
these and other exciting 
questions in my next column.

A question of survival? 

California Lutheran College seems to be 
moving along a disaster course towards obscuri- 
ty and a premature demise. A move made sev- 
eral weeks ago and one this past Saturday 
would tend to add fuel to this argument. 

The items in question are the $300 tuition 
raise for next year (along with a $100 room, 
and board raise) and the approval of the 
Learning Resource Center to begin construc- 
tion by the end of this month. 

When a student first visits a college the one 
thing that will either attract or repel him will 
be the available facilities. Being practical, CLC 
doesn't exactly offer an overabundance of 
modernized labs, classrooms, physical educa- 
tion, or any other type of facility. What it 
does have to offer is an excellent faculty and 
staff and dorm rooms that are above average 
in size. The dorm rooms they see. The ability 
of faculty and staff they must take someones 

word on. A high school senior is most likely 
to make a decision based on what he has seen 
and then back that decision up with what he 
has heard. 

Presently CLC ranks just below the median 
as far as cost to the students goes. The range 
includes Stanford University at $6,740 to a 
low of $2920 for Ambassador College. 

Cal Lutheran, now charging $4200 is $392 
below the average for private schools that 
were rated. With the approved increase for 
next year CLC (if the median does not change 
drastically) will rise above this figure. If Dean 
Buchanan's prediction for the coming years is 
true then CLC has seen the last of alternate 
year increases. Taking this into account it 
would be within reason to assume that within 
three years California Lutheran College will 
rise above the $5,000 mark. This will begin a 
process of pricing itself out of existence. We 


d "> not posess the facilities to attract students 
when the idea of forking over $5,000 + looms 
'" the immediate foreground. 

The administration and Regents entertain 
thoughts of attracting more students in order 
to increase revenues. With this forbidding pic- 
ture so close on the futures horizon, these 
hopes seem slimmer. 

, The Regents had approved the raise assum- 
■Jg that a raise in the California State Scholar- 
ship was imminent and in the bag. Counting 
Vour chickens before they hatch has always 
seemed such a trite saying up to now. Gov- 
ernor Brown preceeded to veto the scholar- 
ship raise (see Brown Vetoes Cal Scholarship 
Raise in October 21 issue). Where did this 
leave present and prospective students? With 
a $400 increase next year and no apparent 
Way for many to cover the extra burden many 
will be questioning the rational behind the 
raise. The idea has been voiced that the finan- 
cial aid percentage per student will be increased. 
1 have doubts as to this. First of all the Re- 
gents made the raise in the first place to 
increase revenues into the college. By increas- 
ing the amount of financial aid given out they 
would defeat their own purpose by lowering 
the net income provided by student monies. 

Where is all this leading? It would seem to 
lead to the possibility that within the near 
future, student enrollment may begin a decline 
due to the increased costs, the lackof facilities 
to make up for the exhorbitant fees, and the 
discrepency between the state scholarship and 
the college costs (presently 40% of the stu- 
dents rely on the CSS for a major portion of 
their financial aid). 

True, Cal Lutheran is beginning to feel a 
financial pinch due to a 9% increase in expen- 
ditures last year as compared to a 3% increase 
in revenues. However, with the expressed goal 
of increasing the student body size to 1500 
persons, raising the schools costs to an unreal- 
istic level would seem to be a detriment and 
would cast a forbidding outlook on the future. 

This brings me to the second point stated 
in the second paragraph. With a somewhat 
dim outlook for the financial future it would ' 
seem folly to proceed with the Learning Re- 
source Center. Granted, it would be a most 
desired goal for the campus. We are sorely in 
need of an increased number of volumes in 
our library and the study rooms, lecture hall, 
and solarium would all be welcome additions 
to the facilities here. 

The manner in which this project is being 
financed will leave the college in a precarious 
financial position. In order to build the struc- 
ture we will take out a 2.6 million dollar loan. 
With the present interest rate the total picture 

will come to somewhere hear $3 million. 

Asked his views on the loan, Dean Buchanan 
responded with, "I'm not in favor of borrowing 
big bucks for the library because it's a non- 
income producing building." 

As well as the initial cost of the structure, 
we will experience a $100,000 raise in opera- 
tion costs for the first year. 

My question is can CLC afford the apparent 
overextension that will ensue? With the loan 
we will have reached our borrowing limit for 
the next five years. As well as this overexten- 
sion and we will be forced to sell some of the 
property within the main portion of the cam- 
pus to fund the expansion and towering of 
Olsen Road (a condition placed upon us for 
approval of the Learning Resource Center by 
the City Planning Commission). With the sel- 
ling of this land we will close out one other 
revenue producing option. 

Now for the future. Should CLC incur some 
unforseen financial burden where wil! the 
funds come from to stay above water? We cer- 
tainly won't be able to borrow it. Of course, 
we can always sell more land. We have seen 
the campus virtually cut in half by this process 
(and the master plan has called for continued 
expansion in the direction of Westend) 
With a little over a ten year history of gradu- 
ating classes we can look for little help from 
the alumni association. 

Can we, as a college, afford the precarious- 
ness of this position? It leaves us no room for 
expansion in the near future (where will we 
house the students necessary to increase enroll- 
ment to 1500?) and leaves us on the brink of 
disaster should we undergo any losing legal 
battles (the possibility may be slim but so was 
our operating in the red). 

As needed and desirable as the Learning 
Resource Center may be, it would seem that 
to achieve other goals and to maintain some 
semblence of financial stability, the school 
and the Regents should reconsider the LRC 
and perhaps postpone it to a more secure 
future (despite the foreseen increase in con- 
struction costs this would present). 

Please write in and respond to this issue. 
It is one that will definitely affect students 
presently enrolled and also those thai may 
consider coming to this institution. 

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

I want to praise the ECHO 
on it's fine Editorial series on 
"The Great Lutheran Refri- 
goratorgate Scandal" and the 
apparent problem of food 
quality in the cafeteria. I've 
decided to throw in my two 
cents about the cafe., and so 
must apoligize for the im- 
promptness of this letter. I 
don't want it to seem as 
though I am digging up old 

Before I start "slinging ar- 
rows," I feel it is apropriate 
that I thank the cafeteria rep- 
resentitive who wrote in this 
column for her fine defensive 
tetter. I was glad to hear that 
food services buys high qual- 
ity meat. Now we know that 
it isn't ruined untill AFTER 
it gets here. 

It totally escapes me as to 
how good potatoes can be 
ruined the way they are here. 
Back where I come from, 
boiled potatoes are soft. 
Some how, the staff here has 
managed to cause them to 
form a rubberized shell, im- 
pervious to attack by fork, 
knife, saw, and nuclear war- 
head. However, I must con- 
gratulate the staff on their 
thinking. They have found 
some way to halve the pota- 
toes so that one need only 
dig out the insides. My mouth 
nearly died when it found 
out what the potatoes where 
like INSIDE. Blech. 

The F.D.A. supposedly 
has a goal of everyone cut- 
ting their salt intake in half. I 
see this as impossible with 
the barrage of salt that has 
assaulted our food. The old 
parable of people adding salt 
to the soup seems to be true 
here. I see no use for the salt 
shakers on the tables. 

I must admit that I oc- 
casionally eat a good meal in 
the cafeteria. But when I do, 
I always look around to see 
which faculty member is eat- 

ing with us. This brings up a- 
nother point: the administra- 
tion is unaware of some of 
the low taste quality of some 
of the meals here because 
they only eat in the cafeteria 
when something decent is be- 
ing served. Or is something 
decent being served because 
they are eating there? Per- 
haps they should be encour- 
aged to eat in the cafeteria 
more often. It is always mov- 
ing to see faculty and admin- 
istration members eat in the 
cafe with us, but then so is 
Ex-lax. They never have to 
eat the waffles that stay 
crunchy, even in syrup. They 
don't have to wait in line be- 
hind five people for orange 
juice, and watch it run out 
just as they get there. They 
never have to wait in long 
lines becuase there is only 
one cow working during a 
rush. They are not aware that 
there exists a genuine prob- 

I eat in the cafeteria be- 
cause I can't afford to eat 
anywhere else, not because I 
want to. It shouldn't be that 
way. I know our cooks can 
make a decent meal occasion- 
ally, why don't they?

Dear Editor, 

Time after time California 
Lutheran College students, 
crowded five per room, are 
informed about new dorm 
proposals, and time after time 
students are told that the new 
dorm construction has been 
delayed. Many students cry 
in outrage against too much 
noise to study, overcrowded 
rooms with no chance for 
privacy, and being charged 
high tuition fees for such 
overcrowded abodes. 

The reason given by the 
administration for such con- 
titions is the desire to reserve 
the school's "Borrowing 

Powe" enabling CLC to be 
able to borrow money to con- 
struct the library annex. One 
would feel that in terms of 
needs, the annex would be 
secondary to the dorms. 
After all, what good is a new 
wibrary complex if there are 
no students around to enjoy 

However, if one stops to 
think about the reasoning 
behind the building of the 
annex, before the dorms, the 
idea seems to make a lot of 
sense. In order to keep up 
with the rising cost of infla- 
tion, CLC needs more incom- 
ing students. These hopeful 
students, when visiting CLC 
for the first time, generally 
would be impressed by the 
library annex when it is com- 
pleted, because it will give 
the school a sense of acade- 
mia and prestige which would 
lure new students. After all, 
what good is a small and ex- 
pensive liberal arts college if 
its academic facilities are, at 
best, obsolete? It is true that 
CLC needs better buildings 
over the entire campus, im- 
proved labs, better language 
facilities, a library that has 
the facilities to meet the de- 
mands of college students, 
and a place to house all 
students, but a new library 
annex would start the way 
towards meeting the needs 
of the school. It is the hope 
of the school that after the 
new annex is completed, con- 
tributions to the school, such 
as alumni, charities, or indivi- 
duals, probably would have 
more confidence in the 
school's future and thereby 
donate contributions to CLC. 
This money would then be 
used to start making the 
necessary improvements on 
the school, which, no one will 
argue, are needed. Since the 
newdorm construction would 
probably follow the annex, 
after money is gathered, the 

students would also benefit 
and be allowed the space and 
facilities they paid for and 

The school is in a real 
bind , for they need the money 
that new students would bring 
in F but where would these 
new students live? McAfee 
Apartments could be rented 
temporarily until the new 
dorms are completed. After 
the annex is built, the new 
dorms could be started, since 
all plans have been approved 
by the city, and the lots have 
already been leveled. There- 
fore, in the long range goals 
of CLC, a Library Annex is 
of far more importance and 
need than the new dorms. 

Jeff Bargmann 

Dear Editor, 

The indifference of CLC stu- 
dents to the hungry and needy 
around them is appalling! At a 
college which proclaims the Chris- 
tian principle of love, its absence 
is plain. Students who advocate 
causes ignore need in their own 
back yard. We are reminded of 
the popular song lyrics: "...especi- 
ally people who care about stran- 
gers, who care about evils and 
social injustice, ... what about a 
needy friend?" 

And that is what we have on 
campus - a needy friend. What 
is man's best friend - the many 
dogs who are dropped off at CLC 
by uncaring owners and left to 
fend for themselves? We have 
observed students who appear 
well-fed, stuffing themselves on 
the patio outside the cafeteria 
while starving dogs, too weak to 
move, utter almost inaudible 

Is this humanitarianism? Is this 
what man's faithful friend, the 
dog, deserves? We say no! Arise 
students! Feed the hungry! Begin 
to combat world hunger where 
you are! Share your opulent lunch 
with a poor, hungry, homeless

Regals win 
second in 
a row 

The women's volleyball 
team defeated Ambassador 
last week by winning three 
out of five games. The win- 
ning scores were 15-8, 15-15, 
15-7. "Dana Glover" accord- 
ing to coach Trego, "both 
played well and hit well." 
"We were together as a team, 
with a good defense, and our 
hitters doing well," com- 
mented Trego. "However," 
Miss Trego says, "Our serv- 
ing needs work, it causes us 
to get behind." 

The CLC women's team 
was not as successful last 
Thursday when they lost to 
Azusa Pacific. Azusa won the 
first three games of the set 
by scores of 15-10, 15-11, 15-8. 
Even though it was a loss, 
coach commented that, "It 
was a good match," with 
CLC playing, "A good de- 
fensive game, displaying good 
team effort."

Athlete of 
the week 

By Brad Reed 

Last year John Kindred 
was voted Co-Most Valuable 
Player of the district in his 
role as quarterback of the 
nation's fifth ranked small 
college football team, the 
CLC Kingsmen. So far this 
season, his statistics are again 
impressive and his perfor- 
mance against U5IU last Sat. 
has earned him honors as 
athlete of the week. John 
threw for a school record 
380 yards and tied a record 
of 4 touchdown tosses in one 
game. He has now passed for 
over 1200 yards with a possi- 
ble 3 games left. Though the 
Kingsmen passing game is 
basically short-minded, his 
percentage is still a phenom- 
enal 68%. 

John is a communications 
major from Anaheim who 
visited a couple other collegs 
before settling in the proeram 
here at the Lu. He went to 
San Diego State for a semester 
and spent a year at Cypress 
Junior College. 

With a goal of a national 
championship in front of him, 
"Charlie" (as in Manson, as 
his teammates kiddingly call 
him) really has his work cut 
out for him. 

Kingsmen move closer to playoffs 






By Mike Gibbons 

CLC has almost guaranteed itself a spot in post season play 
with a rousing victory over U.S.I-U. by a score of 45 - 22. Not 
only was it a big game for CLC, but also homecoming as Carol 
Lobitz was crowned homecoming queen at half-time. 

However* things on the field were not so pleasant for U.S. I. U. 
as CLC, after kicking off t ope n the game, forced U.S.l.U to 
punt and later scored on a Brad Hoffman 18 yard field goal for 
a subsequent 3-0 lead and never looked back. 

In the middle of the first quarter, Kingsman Craig Kinzer 
made a leaping interception on CLC's 42 yard line. From there 
CLC's offense drove down field with the big play supplied by 
Mike Hagen with a pass good for a 1 2 yard gain and a first down. 
A few plays later, Rick Yancey, on a perfectly executed sweep, 
galloped 19 yards for a touchdown. Hoffman added the extra 
point and CLC lead 10-0. 

Interestingly, Craig Kinzer came up with his second inter- 
ception on the U.S.l.U. 30 yard line and CLC again was ready 
to strike. It took only one plav t° score as Kindred threw his 
second touchdown in the game, this one good to Harry Hedrick. 
Hoffman again added the extra point and the Kingsmen's lead 
was now 17-0. 

On U.S.I.U.'s next series they were again forced to punt 
and after a fair catch by Steve Bogan, CLC's offense came in, 
starting on their own 33 yard line. Again CLC started a drive 
mixing passes with runs and finally driving to USIU's40yard 
line. One play later, Kindred threw his third touchdown pass 
hitting Hagen in the end zone. Hoffman came in to hit the 
automatic extra point and CLC increased its lead to 24-0. 

CLFL goes 
on through 
the cold 

By Margaret Hartung 

Eight CLFL teams battled 
on the north field in crisp 
autumn weather Friday, 
October 28, from 3:00 to 
6:00 p.m. 

The closest game was be- 
tween the Force and the fac- 
ulty team, the Marauders. 
Sue Warner, Head Resident 
of Pederson Dorm, scored a 
touchdown for the Marauders 
in the first half. Two touch- 
downs were scored by the 
Force in the second half. Eric 
Johnson scoredforsix points, 
and Shawn Howie made a long 
sprint to score the winning 
touchdown. The Force won 

Ray's Robots scored 
twelve points in the first half 
over Mark's Munchies. Con- 
nie Bowers and Billy Hub- 
bard carried the ball for the 
Robots. No one scored in the 
second half, resulting in a 12- 
win by the Robots. Referee 
Dave Zulauf was hard put to 
keep up with track team 
sprinters Larry Wagner and 
Don Grant who played for 
the Munchies. 

Teddy's Bears defeated 
Foster's Brewers 31-13. A- 
mong those who scored for 
the Bears were Paul Trelstad, 
who made two touchdowns, 
and Irene Hull, who made 

The same score ended the 
game between Cary's Coolies 
and the James Gang, winning 
it for the Coolies. The out- 
standing performer for the 
coolies was Kevin Slattum, 
who made some good catches. 

The other games were for- 
feits: Militia to Mean Machine 
at 3:00; Barnhart's Bombers 
to Darth Vader's Raiders at 
4:00; Sudden Death to the 
orange-shirted Crickets; and 
the Dead End Kids to Moon- 
ey's Moonies at 5:00. 

Late in the second quarter, USIU blocked a Kent Puis 
punt and recovered the ball on CLC's 35 yard line. However, 
on third and eleven, USIU's quarterback, Roy Blakeway, threw 
his third interception of the half, this one swiped by defensive 
back Don Gudmunson in the end zone. 

The rest of the quarter was slow as both the Kingsmena and 
USIU exchanged punts. The first half ended with CLC leading 

CLC received the second half ktckoff and proceeded to 
drive down the field. However, USIU got a big break when 
Kindred, attempting a pass to Don Craviotto in the end zone, 
was intercepted. But USIU continued to be unproductive on 
offense as CLC's defense was superb. After a short sustained 
drive, USIU punted and CLC had the ball on their own 27 
yard line. Kindred's first pass fell incomplete but on the next 
play he unleashed a bomb to a wide open Hedrick and he 
dashed into the end zone completing a 73 yard touchdown 
pass. So the third quarter ended with the Kingsmen in com- 
mand by a score of 31-0. 

After the 73 yard scoring play, USIU finally bagan a drive 
which resulted in a score. However, at this time in the game, 
CLC had taken out most of the starters from both Jhe offense 
and defense. USIU started on their own 23 yard line and began 
moving up the field. It looked as though the drive would stall 
as Kinzer, whose presence was felt all day by USIU, batted 
down a bomb intended for wide receiver Ken Harvey. Surpris- 
ingly, USIU continued to move down to CLC's 13 yard line. 
On third and six, the Westerners were able to make CLC's 
defense jump offsides resulting in an illegal procedure call. On 

The Kingsmen defense teams up for a tackle on another USIU ballcarrier. CLC was devestating against the 

only 24 yards on the ground. 

fourth and one on the seven yard line, illegal procedure was 
again called on the Kingsmen and USIU had a first down on 
the two. Two plays later Courent Baker crashed into the end 
zone with USIU's first score. Kicker Phil Storch added theextra 
point and the score read CLC -31, USIU - 7. 

CLC soccer caught 
napping in 4—1 loss to 

L.A. Baptist 

By Tom Kirkpatrick 

Perhaps they studied too 
long the night before or bus- 
ied themselves with other 
endeavors. Whatever the 
cause, the CLC soccer team 
slept through the first few 
minutes of last Wednesday's 
match against L.A. Baptist 
and subsequently spotted 
them two quick goals on the 
way to a 4-1 defeat. After 
that, the Kingsmen defense 
seemed to awaken from its 
lethargy and regained control 
of their end of the field, 
holding the visitors scoreless 
for the remainder of the 
first half. 

Meanwhile, back at the 
ranch (or wherever they were 

the Mustang defense, under 
what for CLC was a barrage, 
relinquished a goal following 
some excellent footwork and 
a well placed shot by center 
forward Scot Rothman. 
Anxious to add to their score 
the Kingsmen pressed harder 
than ever but could not quite 
manage to duplicate their 
previous effort and went 
scoreless for the remainder of 
the half. 

The Mustangs, unfortu- 
nately for Cal Lutheran, were 
not as unproductive. Midway 
through the final period they 
broke away for their third

But CLC wasn't finished scoring yet. On the very next series, 
the Kingsmen drove down field on USIU. The big play of the 
drive came when on third and 23 Kindred hit Hedrick with a 
pass good for 37 yards. A few plays later, -Kindred threw his 
fourth touchdown pass hitting Eric Murphy with a six yard 
strike. With the extra point by Hoffman, CLC's lead increased 
to 38 - 7. 

It took only 3 plays and the Kingsmen had the ball again. 

This time linebacker Sid Grant stepped in front of Blakeway's 
pass and CLC had the ball on the 27 yard line. Within minutes 
CLC had another score when on fourth and two Hedrick swept 
around end for a touchdown on a fake field goal, Hoffman 
added his sixth extra point and CLC lead by an embarrassing 
45 to 7 score. 

USIU scored two more touchdowns late in the game. With 
only 4:01 left in the game, wide receiver Harvey scored on a 
19 yard strike. The two point try succeeded and the score was 
Kingsmen - 45, Westerners - 15. 

Finally, with 31 seconds left in the game, Blakeway hit big 
Allen Rhodes with another touchdown pass finishing out the 
scoring. The final score was CLC - 45, USIU - 21 .

struggling against a defense 
that managed to shut them 
out for the first period. With 
some golden opportunities 
on fast breaks and some 
quick shots by the forwards 
it seemed only a matter of 
time before the purple and 
gold would begin to score. 

The first half ended with 
LABC on top 2-0 but with 
the Kingsmen controlling 
the last tew minutes of the 
first half. 

CLC came roaring out to 
open the second half and 
advancing the ball after the 
opening kickoff, they moved 
to the other end of the field 
only to miss their first shot 
of the half. With the mo 
mentum in their favor thev 
poured on the pressure until 

With their passing game 
breaking down and pockets 
of individual efforts domi- 
nating the field, Calu lost 
its poise. Following a malic- 
ious foul that went unnotic- 
ed, CLC's joe Hammer retal- 
iated and was ejected by the 
lone referree. 

Playing with only ten on 
their side the offense... did 
not. Into the final five min- 
utes, Cal Lutheran's goal- 
keeper Moy Serrano left the 
game with a neck injury 
and fullback Tom Kirkpat- 
rick (also substitute goalie) 
replaced him. 

With a constant forward 
thrust L.A. Baptist managed 
to add one more goal before 
the final whistle to leave the 
Kingsmen with a 4-1 loss.

Mathews foresees possible 
delay in LRC construction 

*2 million to $3 million. 

Once pledges reach

A possible delay in con- 
struction of the proposed 
Learning Resources Center 
here at California Lutheran 
College would seem to be 

The three million dollar 
plus project has already been 
approved by the college plan- 
ning and budget committees, 
the Regents and their com- 
mittees (finance, planning, 
and development), and a tele- 
phone poll of the Southwest 

Synod. However, upon going 
before the American Luther- 
an Church Board of Higher 
Education, approval was de- 
layed until the ALC Board of 
Trustees can meet and reach 
a decision. The proposed 
structure has received approv-

for December

CLC has rec 

$1,958,000 in pledges 
grants. Of that figure 

September 11, a little less 
than $100,000 had been re- 
ceived in cash. Adding this to 
the $500,000 Ahmartson 

challenge grant from last year 
and $600,000 in monies can 
be counted as received. 

According to President 
Mark Mathews, the ALC will 
probably give its approval 
with a "specific go". This 
would be when the pledges 
and grants figure gets a little 
higher, which could be from 
the present figure of almost

0«h the college and the ALC. 
Should construction be delay-

period the overall cost in-

on -Samuel son Construction 
may say, sorry about that." 
CLC would lose the sub-con- 
tractors and have, to re-open 
the bidding. "We have to 
take that chance," stated 

The $3.2 million bond, 
put up by Heitner and Co., 
is a five year agreement with 
an annual interest rate of 8.5 
percent. It may be paid off 
any time prior to the end of 
that period. 

All pledges and grants are 
on a three year payment 
.basis. This would provide for 
paying off the bond with little 
worry, if enough pledges 
have been made to cover the 
, cost.

The BSfeiQ 

Concert on its way 
to becoming reality 

By Cindy Saylor 

With all the new projects 
beginning at CLC this year, it 
is expected that the Associ- 
ated Students will attempt to 
tackle many of the obstacles 
standing in the way of their 
ambitions. But this is some 
undertaking when three of 
those goals happen to be: 1. 
The outdoor concert, 2. The 
Jacuzzi, and 3. The "ASB" 
park. Hopefully, this will not 
be too big a job forthis year's 
ASCLC officers and their sel- 
ected committees to deal 

Peter Crane, a senior from 
I Ventura, is just one example

of thi 

goals a 

person . 
to make or 
reality. He 
serve as the chairman for the 
concert committee consisting 
of six members. The other 
five volunteers are Kandra 
Chenoweth, Sue Koenig, 
Donna Maganaris, Don Myles 
and Paulette Riding. The 
group will continue to meet 
weekly until December 6th. 
By that date they hopefully 
will have signed a contract 
for the band. 

What kind of bands are 
they in the market for? The 
committee has composed 
two lists, an "A" list includ- 
ng names such as Fleetwood 
Mac, Steve Miller, America, 
md Cat Stevens, and a "B" 
st composed of performers 
like Jackson dtoAiiL-, Foreign- 
er, Atlanta Rhythm Section, 
and ). Geils. Crane estimated 
that the List "A" bands 
'would cost at least $25,000 
if one were to buy them 

That isn't the idea, 
though. The focus is directed 
toward a benefit standpoint. 
So the committee contacted 
it least six national charity 
organizations such as the 

American Heart Association 
and Muscular Dystrophy. 

To briefly summarize the 
proposal: A big-named band 
' would donate their time and 
talents to the charity and its 
cause, who would then sched- 
ule the concert to take place 
at the CLC campus. Tickets 
are estimated at $5 per person 
if a list "A" band is perform- 
ing. The minimal cost for se- 
curity and maintenance 
would be deducted from the 
total and the net profit would 
fund the charity. 

The American Heart Asso- 
ciation has shown an interest 
in the CLC proposal and they 
are currently in the process 
of contacting bands. Last 
year, this same organization 
staged a similar contract at 
Arizona State University 
with Fleetwood Mac. It must 
not be overlooked, though, 
that ASU is an older state' 
university with an enormous- 
ly large student enrollment. 

What about parking, se- 
curity, location? What i 
response from the nearby 
homeowners? Crane offers, 
"Once we get a band there 
will be a lot of smaller prob- 
lems, but the solutions will 
be readily available. Right 
now the main problem is to 
get a band." He suggests that 
the size and name of the 
band will determine the draw. 
At the point of signing the 
contract, however, "It will 

investigating all the possibl 
take place.

November 9 "the ASCLC 
Food Committee met with 
Lil Lopez, director of food 
services, and Karen Tibbitts 
nutritionist, and made many 
■suggestions concerning food 
and service improvements in 
the cafeteria. 

As part of the executive 
branch"" of CLC, the Food 
Committee's purpose is to 
act as a channel for the stu- 
dents, provide nutritional 
information to the students, 
and plan for special dinners. 
They are also required to give 
progress reports to the Senate. 
Four areas of emphasis 
brought up by the food com- 
mittee dealt with leaving two 
lines open between 11:45 and 
1:15, developing a question- 
naire on the cafeteria for stu- 
dents to respond to, encour- 
agement for students to cut 
down on how much food 
they waste, thus enabling 
them to have more "special" 
dinners, and entitling students 
to put their names and num- 
bers in a suggestion box. 

Other topics discussed 
included moving the salad 
bar to a less crowded location, 
providing a constant variety 
of vegetables for the salad 
bar, like beans, beets, onions, 
cucumbers, carrot circles, 
and bean sprouts, fruit salad 
[more often, fruit at least 
• twice a week for dinner and 
lunch and at least once for 
breakfast, hamburger steaks 
cooked at medium done, 
fish twice weekly, and a vege- 
tarian dish twice weekly. Al- 
though Ms. Lopez could not 
guarantee that all theserecom- 
mendations would be utilized, 
she explained they will be tak- 
en into consideration,

it is only an hypothesis." 

Financially, Crane's pro- 
posal at the last Senate meet- 
ing suggested that the ASCLC 
put out the front money for 
the concert. This would be a 
guarantee to the charity that 
some monetary gain would 
reward their efforts. The fig- 
ure stated involves $3,000 to 
be taken from the contin- 
gency fund. This and $5,000 

brought in from students, 
paying $5 each and 400 peo- 
ple from the community pay-] 
ing $5 would total $10,000 
guaranteed profit for thei 
charity. "CLC students will 
have priority, though. Ticketsl 
will be on sale to the students, 
for at least two weeks before 
they reach the community," 
stated Crane. "There will be

Kingsmen 'play-off mania' runs rampant 

| By Kathy Hitchcox 

"Play-off mania" spread 
ough-out the ASCLC 
| Senate Nov. 13, as senators 
approved to subsidize $600 
ards 600 student play-off 
I tickets so they would cost 
I only $2.- compared to the 
I regular six dollar tickets. 

"ill Hamm, the advisor to 

I president Mark Mathews and 

; administrator of the 

I NAIA championship explain- 

| ed to the Senate the play-offs 

, "something of which we 

i be very proud." He fur- 

r pointed out the admini- 

|stration's intention to make 

ie students a high priority. 

Normally, NAIA regula- 

ons state that the minimum 

play-off ticket cost is $3.00. 
However, since the Senate 
determined this was still too 
high a price, they voted to 
subsidize out of the contin- 
gency fund one dollar out of 
every first six hundred $3.00 
student tickets. Thus, Senate 
will pay the NAIA $600 so 
the first 600 students seats 
will go for $2.00. 

Hamm explained the stu- 
dent tickets could be sold for * 
less than the normal six dollar 
admission price for a variety 
of reasons. One of the primary 
reasons is the hundred "gol- 
den circle" seats which will 
cost $25.00 each. He added 
"that CLC is also tentatively 

planning to budget only 
$300 for additional bleachers, 
compared to $4,000 spent in 
1971. Hamm noted, however, 
that more bleachers could be 
leased if necessary. 
"We're trying to work this 
out so it's both economical 
and benefits the students," 
Hamm concluded. 

The 600 $2.00 tickets 
were given out on a first 
come, first serve basis. Since 
CLC is one out of three hun- 
dred small college to be cho- 
sen for the play-offs, Hamm 
admitted it should be a first- 
class ball game and urges stu- 
dents to attend the game. 

Although a few senators 

felt the money in the contin- 
gency could go towardssome- 
thing else and one dollar dif- 
ference in the price didn't 
make that big of a difference, 
Shawn Howie, ASCLC trea- 
surer pointed out, "We have 
the money and it will go di- 
rectly to the students." 

"We want to get everybody 
as thoroughly involved as we 
possibly can," stated Hamm. 
As a result, CLC has reserved 
six hundred seats for the stu- 
dents under the stipulation 
that six hundred students will 
attend the game. Sections D 
and E constitute this reserved 
area, while the pep band will 
sit in their usual place.

From the end of Thanksgiving vacation to ,

A second major change concerns the emphasis on state 

scholarships. Brown pointed out that in the past his was

Last week'sa 
was mistaken in two key as- 
pects. First, the present cost 
of a four unit class is $362.40 
so the headline referring to 
the new raise should have in- 
cluded the figure $362.40 
rather than $324.80. Second- 
ly, the tuition cost will only 
increase by $300 while anoth- 
er $100 will be added to the 
cost of room and board. 

Considering this $300 as 
the figure, the tuition will be 
$2900 next year. Assuming a 
student carries an average 32 
credit load for the year, each 
unit is equal to $90.60. A 
four unit course then costs 
$362.40 or $8.63 per class 
session. This is provided that 
the class meets three times a 
week and 42 times during the 
Fall semester. A three unit 
course costs $271.80 and for 
a two unit course the cost is

Have you ever walked

and thought it needed paint? 
Did you ever dream of build- 
ing a park, stone by stone, 
;tree by tree? Don't you think 
the CLC campus is in need of 
a little rejuvenating? Well, 
get ready to grab your overalls 
and tone those muscles on 
Dec. 10 when students, facul-

team up to renovate specific 
areas on campus under the 
theme "Renew the Lu." 

Representatives from 

Thompson, Pederson, Kramer, 
Westend, McAfee, and Mount

SUB Nov. 11 at 9:00 p.m. to 
share ideas and organize pro-

What if the charity doesn't 
come through? Crane re- , 
sponds, "The wheels are in 
motion for a benefit concert , 
'to occur, but the likelihood 
of a benefit" is not 100% sure 
so we realize that our poten- 
tial possibilities could include 
promoting our own concert 
as other schools do. At this 
stage of the game, there are 
no promises and we have 
contacted no band." 

Important information 
that must be added is that 
according to Crane and 
ASCLC President Craig Kin- 
zer, the reaction to the all- 
campus activity day sche- . 
duled for December 10 will 
determine whether the plan- 
ning process for a Spring 
Concert can be continued. In 
Crane's words, "Any disre- 
gard for school policies during 
this event would definitely 
cancel the Spring Concert. " 

Peter Crane and the con- 
cert committee will be updat- 
ing this information in their 
next report to the Senate on 
December 4.

approximately $9,500. Ac-

ASCLC treasurer, "The 
money is undistributed," 
which means that it can be 
used for unplanned costs that 
may arise during the year. 
The final decision, however, 
as to if and how the money 
will be spent, rests with the 
senate committee headed by 
Craig Kinzer. 





The first two planes

SUB changes initiated 

ASCLC looking towards expanded usage 

By Kathy Hitchcox 

Currently, the SUB is 
undergoing a gradual meta- 
morphosis to "increase the 
use of the SUB while balanc- 
ing time with the lounge at- 
mosphere," explained Craig 
Kinzer, ASCLC president. 
This metamorphosis is evident 
through both a change in 
SUB-policy and current plans 
for renovation. 

Management of the SUB 
is determined by the ASCLC 
Executive Cabinet. They are 
responsible for drawing up 
priorities and policiesforSUB 
use, recommending major 
equipment purchases, annual- 
ly reviewing the budget, and ' 
making semester reports to 
theSenate. Members of execu- 
tive Cabinet and subsequently 
the SUB committe board are: 1 
j.-niF Berg, Paul Brousseau, 
Joel Gibson, Dave Hagen, 
Shawn Howie, Marrie Jaynes, 
Craig Kinzer, Kay Lehen- 
bauer., Janet Persson, Terrel 
Ratchford, Brad Reed and 
Creighton Van Horn. Don 
Hossler, the director of cam- 
pus activities, acts as the SUB 


In the past, the SUB was' 
limited to use as a lounge, for 
Senate meetings, and student 
art shows. In order to facili- 
tate an increase in student 
use, Kinzer recommended 
that the SUB policy be 
changed. After discussion, 
the SUB committee formed a 
new policy which states stu- 
dent groups or organizations 
may use the SUB to meet in 
as long as the "lounge" at- 
mosphere is not disrupted. 
The SUB committee will de- 
termine if an organization 
may use the SUB by evaluat- 
ing the quality of the event, 
class and good taste, partici- 
pation by CLC students, and 
whether SUB time will be 
monopolized. In the future, 
many Barn activities will also 
be incorporated into the SUB 
along with more commuter 
orientated activities. 

With the probable increase 
in SUB use, the SUB com- 
mittee has made plans to 
renovate the building in sever- 
al ways. Terrel Ratchford is 

in charge of this project and 
performs such duties as work- 
ing out construction details 
with Walt Miller of mainten- 
ance and organizing the pur- 
chase of specific items. 

Some of the plans for 
SUB improvement are a 
snack-bar with indoor and 
outdoor access, a new patio 
with an awning, more parti- 
tions to section off areas, the 
"Z" channel for the televi- 
sion, a magazine rack, a game 
room with pinballs and elec- 
tric games, a study room, a 
music system, and many new 
plants. Funding for these 
projects comes from the 
Capital Expenditures budget 
and comes to approximately 
$8,000. This fund is com- 
prised of money from the 
student fees. 

Executive cabinet aims to 
have these projects completed 
by the end of this year, but 
Kinzer pointed out, "If we 
complete just 50% of this, 
we will have done a fantastic

ties. The day will begin with 
a "wake-up" call, specia 
breakfast, and organizational 
information. By 10:00 the 
projects will begin and con- 
tinue until 1 :00. During the 
projects, each participating 
student will receive a special 
ticket entitling him to receive 
a steak for the afternoon bar- 
becue. At 2:00, Westend will 
i be the site of a concert. A 
hockey game between the 
Kings and Toronto will act as 
a finale to a full day of events.

in organizing this day are,

Towards the end of the 
meeting, everyone divided 
into their own dorm groups 
and decided on a chairperson 
and what activities they 
would concentrate on. They 
also discussed a means of 
distinguishing themselves 
from the other dorms. 

For Mountclef, the chair- 
person is Ann Jaenhig and 
the projects include painting 
the water-pump room and 
grading the area in back of 
Mountclef leading to the 

park. Creighton Van Horn is 
the chairperson for Kramer, 
which will paint their back 
gates, construct a washroom ^ 
platform and place stepping 
stones in the grass between 
Kramer and the pool. Pool 
projects will be direcied by 
Marty Rouse, and includes 
painting the bathrooms, trim- 
ming the hedges, and staining 
the benches. Westend will 
work as an entire unit in 
planting' trees, digging trench- 
es, and pruning trees for the 
new park site. Paul Blaze will 
act as chairperson. Pederson 
will also assist in park projects 
under chairperson Steve 
Bogan. A patio awning behind 
the SUB is thegoal of McAfee 
with chairperson Edie Harrie. 
I Finally, Thompson will paint 
the Kingsmen biidge and cut 
away unnecessary branches 
covering it. Joel Gibson will 
chair this dorm. Commuters 
are invited to either work as 
a unit themselves, or join in 
assisting a dorm. Along with 
these specific activities, each 
dorm will also pick up trash. 
All students are encour- 
aged to take an active role in 
this special day and invite a 
professor or administrator to 
join in the work. Craig Kinzer, 
ASCLC president, explained, 
"This is a kind of test for the 
whole student body to see if 
we can have a spring festival 
this year. Outside by the con- 
cert, please do not have alco- 
hol, get crazy at the hockey 

Movie channel 
still off the air 

By Joel Gibson 

. ASCLC President Craig 
Kinzer announced to the 
ASCLC Senate(10-3and1 1-6) 
that the "Showtime" movie 
channel would be secured for 
the television in the Student 
Union Building. 

The cost for this service, 
according to Terrel Ratch- 
ford, ASCLC presidential ad- 
visor, would be $15.00 for 
installation and a monthly 
service charge of $8.99. (The 



$29.00.) The service charge 
would be paid from the SUB 
Operations budget of Don 
Hossler, Student Activities 
Director. The installation fee 
would come from the ASCLC 
Capital Expenditures fund. 

Originally, the sales repre- 
sentative of the Thousand 
Oaks, Newbury Park, and 
Westlake areas approved the 
plan of the SUB Board so the 
announcement was made to 
the Senate. However, the West 
Coast Manager of the Storer 
Cable Television classified 
the SUB as "a non-residential 
dwelling" and overruled the 
local sales representative's 
decision, according to Kinzer 
and Ratchford. 

Kinzer and Ratchford are 
still working on the problem. 
The SUB Board would like to 
see the moviechannel installed 
in the SUB. Says Kinzer, "We 
are still attempting to work 
something out." 

Cal scholarships 
needed by students 

(continued from page 1) 

ships. Currently, 26% of the student bocy receive state scholar- 
ships, valued up to $674,000. If CLC could raise this number 
to 30% or sixty-seven additional students, CLC would receive 
$1 54,000 more. This would ease the financial aid program and, 
as Brown asserted, enable a better use of college funds to meet 
student needs. Accordingly, all students who need and want 
financial aid must apply for a state scholarship. 

Finding sources of money is another area of interest. Brown 
urges students to check into the. reserved section of the library 
and look through the "grant books". He also suggested that 
students could write to "Scholarship Search" in New York. 
This is a computer bank of information about 250,000 scholar- 
ship programs, valuing up to $5 million in funds. There is a 
dollar tee lor an application and an additional $39.00 for pro- 
cessing. However, if no aid is received by the student, all $40.00 
is returned. This accounts for the 90% success rate of "Scholar- 
ship Search". "Every dollar you receive is one more dollar to- 
wards your goal, " explained Brown. 

Another area of concern is based on the employment oppor- 
tunities on campus. Although Brown stated his philosophy 
that "Everyone should have the opportunity to seek employ- 
ment," he pointed out that jobs on campus may be restricted 
to those exhibiting financial need. This is due largely to require- 
ments set by the federal government, 

Brown continued to point out that, "Governor Brown's veto 
was a great disappointment to the financial aid community." 
He explained that since the bill passed through the state legis- 
lature they thought the governor would approve it. However 
Brown explained, "The governor is unpredictable." 

Although the bill to increase scholarship aid was vetoed 
Brown noted a bright^spot still remained. Due to the extensive 
response of people against the veto, Governor Brown stated he » 
will be open for a compromise in the Spring. Accordingly, 
Brown urged students to write a personal, short letter to the' 
governor. If this approach is successful and a new bill is imple- 
mented in the Spring, Brown explained the additional money 
can still be used in 78-79. 

Brown couldn't stress enough the importance of students 
attending the financial aid sessions. "We do not receive more 
than 50% of the students who have financial need," he admit- 
ted. Accordingly, he urged all students to be aware of the ses- 
sions and to attend them.

Emphasizes unreal art 

Slattum expects 'unexpectables' 

By Margaret Hartung 

Jerry Slattum, CLC art 
professor who once excused 
a student from taking a final 
because he apparently hanged 
himself in effigy from the 
campus cross, is an art pro- 
fessor at CLC with many out- 
side cultural interests. He en- 
tertains and inspires his classes 
to produce "unexpectables" 

his students' preconceptions. 
"I like to tear down their 
tunnel vision," he observed. 

Slattum attributes his 
popularity among students at 
CLC to the lack of pressure 
in his classes. "The students 
are competing with them- 
selves, not with other stu- 
dents." His goal as a teacher 
is "to be a person to my 
students - to show them the 

view great architecture and 
collect many artifacts, especi- 
ally New Guinea relics. He 
has over 100 pieces valued at

Jerry Slattum, CLC art professo 
classes to produce 'unexpectables' 

for his joking and friendliness. 
The student who hanged 
himself was the winner of 
Slattum's "SurreaMsticSweep- 
stakes". In order to win, the 
student has to bring in some- 
thing that is "so real it's un- 
real," commented Slattum. 
In his fifteen years at CLC, 
Slattum has tried to eradicate 

beauty of art and luv (sic.)." 
Slattum is a religious person 
but has difficulty defining 
God. "Maybe my art is God; 
I don't know," he remarked.' 
He associates God the Creator 
with the creative process, in- 
dicating his deep absorption 
in his art. 

He has traveled widely to 

..jth the Pueblo Indians, who 
he and his family regularly 
visit. They also participate m 
Indian dances. "I'm always in 
touch with a mystical symbol

fully remarked. 

He became acquainted 

with the architecture of 

Frank Lloyd Wright while 

living in Arizona. Wright, 

who got away from the tradi- 

J tional box structure of a 

I house, favored the geodesic 

J dome and other forms. To 

I Slattum, who must always

Slattum recently spent 
two weeks at a colloquium 
on feminism at the University 
of New Mexico. He believes 
that, "Women have gotten the 
bad end of a lot of things," 
and that men should step in 
to alter feministic patterns, 
especially in everyday langu- 
age. His six-year-old daughter, 
Ktrstin, is one of two girls on 
a Little League soccer team. 
Slattum observed that he-*«d 
his wife have not had a prob- 
lem with the issue at alf. 

Slattum's opinion of CLC 
is that "everything is work- 
ing." He doesn't feel that the 
budget cut will affect his 
teaching. He reiterated a Har- 
vard quote: "No person can 
stop a creative mind." 

Take control of your life 

'Slipsliding away' is not the answer 

By Bill Moore 

Paul Simon has done it again; he's written 
another brilliant song. His new single, "Slip- 
Sliding Away," not only provides us with an 
incisive, if somewhat depressing, view of life, 
but also provides me specifically with a topic 
for today's column: 

"God only knows 
God makes His plans 
The information's unavailable to the 

mortal man 
We work at our jobs, collect our pay 
We think we're gliding down the highway 

when in fact 
We're slip-sliding away." 

Now I personally think he's touching on a 
universal truth there - I mean, haven't you 
felt like you were "slip-sliding" sometimes, or 
am I the only one to have these occasional 
feelings of uncertainty and doubt? To "slip- 
slide" means to move through life without a 
clear sense of direction or purpose and only a 
fuzzy idea of who you are - drifting with the

gears stuck in neutral. So I'd like to say a few 
words to those of us who are drifters, myself 
included: Sail, don't drift. 

Now that cliche sounds a little on the cute 
side doesn't it? Well, I can't accept the credit/ 
blame for it; I saw it on an Argus communi- 
cations poster. Cute or not it seemed quite 
appropriate. Personally and professionally

By Joel Gibson 

Last Saturday night and 
Sunday afternoon, the Music 
Department performed "Eli- 
jah," a two-hour oratorio by 
Mendelssohn. For those who 
attended, it was two hours 

The stage, augmented by 
an eight-foot extension, was 
completely packed by the 
Concert Choir, All-College 
Choir, Concert Orchestra, 
members of the CLC-Conejo 
Symphony, and various voices 
from the faculty and commu- 
nity. This sight alone was very 
impressive and filled the audi- 
ence with expectations of the 
" production to come. 

The audience was not dis- 
appointed. From the start of 
Keith Butenshon's solo to 
the last note of the chorus at 
the finale, the production 
showed ample evidence of 
■ many hours of practice. The 

vide direction to my life; if I "stick my neck 
out" to risk growth and change in my career 
and my personal life; if I operate in my inter- 
personal relationships on the basis of my 
vision of myself rather than the other's vision 
of what I should be; and on and on. 

Sailing with respect to your career means 
not drifting through your classes with no sense 
of how they relate to your future life; instead, 
actively construct your future by fully partici- 
pating in the "now" with a clearer sense of 
purpose - What are your plans? What skills are 
you gaining in college, both academically and 
(more importantly) personally? Whatdecisions 
are you making which will have impact on 
your future? How do your courses relate to 
living skills? 

Raising these questions in your life does 
not mean there are clearcut answers all of the 
time, or even most of the time;you will always 
be forced to make decisions with limited in- 
formation, to cope in the face of uncertainty - 
there are no guarantees. However, it is possible 
and desirable to raise these questions and strive 
for answers, even partial or tentative answers, 
because then you - not peers, profs, parents, 
or the mysterious "they" - accept responsi- 
bility and control for your life. That responsi- 
bility isn't an easy thing necessarily, but it 
doesn't take that much of an effort. Yes, I 
know you have classes, homework, a social life, 
and so on. All of th: a: activities demand your 
time, I agree? unfortunately, the result is thai 
it becomes much easier to drift aimlessly 
through your years in college and beyond - 
much easier to avoid looking at these difficult 
questions. And if you don't sail in college by 
carefully appraising your abilities and limita- 
tions, by learning about opportunities in career 
fields that interest you (perhaps through part- 
time or summer work, or volunteer experi- 
ences), and by learning about job-hunting be- 
fore you graduate (like, who's hiring and how 
do they hire?), then you may easily wind up 
floundering through some tough times in the 
job market after you graduate. It's your de- 
cision - to drift or to sail. I'd like to see us 
ail sail.

'President's Men' 
was top-notch 

By Robyn Saleen 

The Academy-Award 

winning movie "All the Presi- 
dent's Men" was shown last 
Sunday night in the gym. 
The film, which depicts the 
sensational uncovering of the 
sources behind Watergate, 
stars Robert Redford as re- 
porter Bob Woodward and 
Dustin Hoffman as reporter 
Carl Berstein for The Wash- 
ington Post. 

"Alt the President's Men" 
is a superb reproduction of 
investigative journalism on 
the parts of two relatively 
un-established reporters who 
challenged the nation's high- 
est law-enforcement agen- 
cies -the F.B.I, and the C.I.A. 
The unfortunately true story 
discloses the often corrupt 
actions of this nation's highest 

Carl Bernstein and Bob 
Woodward jolted the Ameri- 
can people with their almost 
daily reports of the incrimin- 
ating facts of Watergate in- 
volving the leaders of this 
country -even the President. 
The film is a gripping, sus- 
penseful story that is all too 
real. If vou haven't seen it, 
you are missing out on a tre- 
mendous detective story that 
is very pertinent to our lives.

school as his educational goal. Photo by Paul Broussea 

'Out of many. 

Lee enjoys CLC culture 

By Jane Lee 

Talking with Michael Lee, 
foreign student from Montego 
Bay, Jamaica in the West In- 
dies, is an education and a 
step closer to understanding 
the Caribbean way of life. 

"As a foreign student, I 
can help other students on 
campus to understand inter- 
national affairs in my coun- 
try-" announced Lee. "If 
people will sit down for a 
moment and talk with me, 
they will have a broader ed- 
ucational background." 

Law school is Lee's edu- 
cational goal. He intends to 
travel to England upon grad- 
uation from CLC next year 
and attend law school in 
London. The British law sys- 
tem is the same as the law sys- 
tem in Jamaica. "The idea of 
going to England is like a 
pearl to me. It is a gem to go 
there just to see what it is 
like and to study the law." 

"Basically, my idea of law 
is not only in being a court- 
room lawyer, but also in in- 
ternational law," conceded 
Mr. Lee. But his affection for 
politics was revealed, "There 
is a tug in me to go into 
politics because I'm interest- 
ed in the developments that 
are going on between the U.S. 
and the Caribbean relations." 
Lee has been in the U.S. 
since 1975. He attended a 
junior college in Tucson, Ari- 
zona for one semester. 

"I expected a lot from A- 
merica." exclaimed Lee, 
"When I came here, I didn't 
have that strong of an Amer- 
ican liking. I thought of A- 
mericans as monsters. The 
most surprizing thing was 
that the people were so open 
and so kind in this country." 
"So far the community at 
CLC, as far as the professors 
are concerned, are really help- 
ful." Lee noted, "We don't 
have a sense of alienation like 
on a larger campus." 

Although being a foreign 
student is extremely advanta- 

geous, there are drawbacks as 
well. A luxury that most stu- 
dents with cars take for grant- 
ed is being able to drive 
down to the mall to go shop- 
ping, but that could be a 
problem for foreign students. 
"The foreign student can 
not go home every time he 
wants," exclaimed Lee. He 
thinks that the administra- 
tion should consider the for- 
eign students need especial- 
ly during vacation times 
when they are charged to 
stay in the dorms. 

There are many interna- 
tional students at CLC. 
Michael Lee "would like to 
see everybody get interested 
in the foreign student body." 
He would like to see a func- 
tion where students would be 
able to experience the food 
and culture of all the nations 
represented here on campus. 
"You would get a mini inter- 
national cross section of the 

Jamaica is a very small 
country with a dense popu- 
lation. They promote tour- 
ism and as a result have be- 
come fairly westernized. 
"There is still an indigenous 
culture that comes out in our 
folk dancing and Christmas 
celebrations. We still try to 
preserve our heritage as Ja- 
maicans" concluded Lee. 

Jamaica is a melting pot 
country with descendents 
from Africa, China and India. 
"There have not been any ra- 
cial outbursts," boasted Lee, 
who is of Chinese descent. 
"We have lived in harmony 
for the last fifteen years. Our 
motto is 'Out of many, One 
people' ". 

Michael Lee's philosophy 
is that, "to get a broad edu- 
cation, you have to study 
each discipline. You need a 
broad world spectrum. "Per- 
haps this philosophy of edu- 
cation is what really brought 
him to the United States and 
has encouraged him to be a 
truly global person. 

Kuethe's send greetings from Oxford 

Dear Mark and Jean, 

What a beautiful glorious morning. The sun is so bright 
and the sky is so clear • after I hung the clothes I went back to 
out little garden and picked some black berries. I do wish you 
were really here though - as I look out the window, I m looking 
at our beautiful roses - red, pink and talisman. 

We have been here two Sundays now and have enioyed 
services at Christ Church Cathedral. The music of the male 
choir and boy school choir is so beautiful - the sermons have 
been so rich and full of exactly what we need to hear. One can 
hear organ and even song at many churches every day of the 
week if one wishes - It is sort of like a make believe world • and 
then one steps from any quadrangle and there is the hustle and 
bustle that transforms us like majic - back to the real world. 

John is enjoying reading in the library for several hours 
nearly every day - just "soaking" i< all '"• ln a relaxed manner 
that is impossible in the rat race of anything but a sabbatical, I 

Then he chooses lectures hither and yon at any one of the 
28 colleges that he feels would interest him. What a treat for 
him, and how refreshing and, I would say, necessary for a 
teacher to be absorbing and taking in rather than probably 
altogether giving out. 

Oxford is a good location for seeing England, too - It is geo- 
graphically rather centrally located so we can take a day's jaunt 
and be back - to go most anywhere - among other things we've 



done - a play. King Henry VI at Stratford on Avon - Blenhein

... quite excited about that experience. Yesterday we 
went about 50 miles to the Cotswald Country and saw some 
quaint 14-15 century villages and did a little hiking - another 
storybook experience. 

I go along with John when I'm allowed to go in - or shop 
around the town or go to the museum - also trying my skill at 
brass-rubbing. My first one last week took three hours of hard 
labor, but I think it is quite beautiful - gold wax on black paper. 
One must sit on the' floor and rub hard and careful not to go 
over the edge. It was about 18 inches of God the Father up- 
holding the Son on the cross with his arms, and the dove r 
senting the Holy Spirit. My father had a similar figure n 
form of stained glass in the church that he had built in San 
Antonio, Texas.

By Karen Coppage 

Every Monday at 10:10 
a.m. in the Nelson Room of 
the College Commons, Con- 
temporary Christian Conver- 
sations is held. This year's 
theme, "College: Disciplines 
and Values" provides many 
things for students: A re- 
source for considering differ- 
ent fields of study, a stimu- 
lant for relating your value 
system to what you study, 
a context for meeting many 
of CLC's finest faculty, and 
a stream of questions, chal- 
lenges and interactions flow- 
ing toward the fullest possible 
college experience available. 

A sample of conversations 

to come is as follows: 

Nov. 21: Mr. Carl Swanson, 

"Values are more than 

morals, they also express 

aesthetic worth. Not all 

music is good."

them will probably be repre- 
sentatives from the Uniteo 
States State Department and 
representatives from the Na- 
tionalist and Cummunist gov- 
ernments of China. 

Here are some of the major 
questions which Dr. Tseng 
sought to answer. What is 

the future status of Taiwan? 
Should Taiwan continue to 
be an independant state from 
the mainland, or should Tai- 
wan be incorporated with 
mainland China? He has been 
working on the problem ever 
since he received a post doc- 
torate grant from the Univer- 
sity of California' at Berkley 
in 1973. He now feels that he 
has come up with, "a realistic 
kind of solution." Tseng fur- 
ther stated, "The absence of 
a solution to this problem is

from recognizing Communist 

During Interim, Dr. Tseng 
and some students will travel 
to East Asia. While there, he 
will carry on a series of dis-

tions to his proposal will be 
included in his presentation 
to the symposium.

'Lucia Bride' 

By Karen Coppage 

Each year at CLC, the 
New Earth and the AWS 
sponsor the Lucia Bride Cel- 
ebration. The evening of Dec- 
ember 8th will begin with a 
dorm caroling competition in 
the gyni, judged by our pro- 
fessors. This year we should 
look forward to hearing some 
excellent, well-blended choirs 
because of co-ed dorm living. 

After the contest follows 
the Lucia Bride procession it- 
self consisting of a nominated 
princess from each class and 
the Lucia Bride. Santa Lucia 
was the Swedish saint of light 
and the chosen senior girl 
should "exemplify the quali- 
ties of Lucia in her Christian 
service and devotion."

The Barn is 
going, going 

By Joel Gibson 

The Barn will be gone by 
Spring, 1978. The new Learn- 
ing Resource Center got the 
okay from Regents during 
Homecoming weekend. Let's 
face it ■ the Barn cannot stay. 
Presently, the Barn exists in 
violation of a Thousand Oaks 
city ordinance. If it is moved, 
it will still be in violation of 
the ordinance. 

However, we need some 
place on-campus where we 
can go to socialize and get 
something to eat at night. For 
those students who don't 
have transportation, Jack-ln- 
The-Box might as well be in 
the San Fernando Valley. 
Many students like to get 
something to eat at night. 
But the Barn will be gone. 
What will take its place? 

Currently, the ASCLC 
S.U.B. Board is looking into 
the possibility of incorporat- 

ing the Barn food facilities 
into the S.U.B. Before the 
Regents meeting last week- 
end, Lisa Everett, Student 
Director of the Barn, stated 
that she was "90% sure" that 
the Barn would exist through 
the rest of this school year. 
Well, now it won't. We, the 
students, are going to have 
to do something about it. 

If we want to have a stu- 
dent-run and student-oper- 
ated coffee shop, then we 
must be willing to support it. 
Let's use the Barn while it 
still exists. If enough students 
use the Bain, the administra- 
tion will realize that the stu- 
dents want some place where 
they can go at night without 
leaving the campus. Let's 
have record crowds using the 
Barn right up until the date 
it is closed. If we, the stu- 
dents, don't show concern 
for the Barn, then who will?

Or the home may de- 
clare bankruptcy to avoid 
paying off its creditors. 
Vet the home's profits are 
actually hidden by the 
owner in other corpora- 
tions. This is called "cre- 
ative bankruptcy." 

Investigators have dis- 
covered this kind of fraud, 
for example, in Connecti- 
cut's nursing homes. The 
ripoff runs into hundreds of 
thousands of dollars. 

Monumental Mistake: 
President Carter lost his 
showdown with the Senate 
over natural gas prices. 
But the real story was 
missed. The president lost 
because his aides couldn't 
count. It was a major 

Two weeks ago. the Sen- 
ate was debating whether 
to lift price controls on 
natural gas. Carter op- 
posed deregulation of gas 
prices. He claimed it was a 
multibillion-dollar ripoff of 
the consumers. 

Two Democratic sena- 
tors mounted a week-long 
filibuster against deregu- 

Abourezk and 
Howard Metzen- 
baum. They were cheered 
on by the White House. 
When Metzenbaum offered 
to stop the filibuster, En- 
ergy Secretary James 
Schlesinger told him to 
keep talking. 

But last week. Senate 
Democratic Leader Robert 
Byrd persuaded the White 
House to help him break 
the filibuster. Byrd worked 
out the strategy with Vice 
President Walter Mondale. 
Metzenbaum learned 
that the White House had 
switched sides. He rushed 
to see the vice president. 
But Metzenbaum couldn't 
get past Mondale's staff. 
Later, Metzenbaum 
cornered the vice presi- 
dent in his Senate chair. 

Mondale told the ruffled 
senator not to worry. He 
said the White House had 
the votes to prevent dere- 
gulation. A White House 
lobbyist told Abourezk the 
same thing - that the 
White House had lined up 
enough votes to win. 

The President lost because 

his aids couldn't count. 

Well, it turned out that 
the White House aides 
couldn't count. The Senate 
voted to deregulate gas 
prices by a 50 to 46 margin. 

Dear Editor, 

I am so grateful for 
day. I awoke at 6:00 a.m. to 
study for my Geography mid- 
term. You are probably 
wondering, who in their right 
mind would be grateful for 
that! My reason for this feel- 
ing of gratitude is that it gives 
me another opportunity for 
growth and learning. I have 
been attending college here 
at CLC for two years. I have 
looked forward with excite- 
ment to class lectures, _ my 
own participation and listen- 
ing to my professors. I have 
taken classes in French, 
Speech, Religion, English, 
Math and Education. I can 
honestly say that I have learn- 
ed a great deal. My professors 
have been and continue to 
be, educators in the fullest 
sense of the word. They are 
totally committed to their 
students and dedicated to 
helping us grasp concepts and 
ideas that we might not other- 
wise have understood. I be- 
lieve it is the teacher's respon- 
sibility to know his subject 
thoroughly, and to be con- 
stantly seeking new knowl- 
edge so that they can discuss 
issues with reason and intelle- 
gence, especially when the 
issues are related to the entire 
world. It is the great task of 
the professor to nurture in 
the minds of students a con- 
cept of freedom. This will 
liberate students to question 
their freedom, including their 
right to make mistakes and 
to reduce the students' fear 
so that they will be able to 
become their own judges as 
to what is correct for them. 

If there is an ideal teacher, 
then there must also be an 
ideal student. We, as students, 
have a great responsibility, 
too. How many times have 

we gone to our classes dread- 
ing the lectures and not really 
listening or caring about what 
our professors were trying to 
say? We think we have more 
important things to talk 
about, such as Homecoming, 
personal problems or just 
generally wishing we were 
some place other than a bor- 
ing classroom. Please don't 
misunderstand me because 
in addition to having these 
same feelings, I have acdemic 
motivations, too. Despite 
these weaknesses we exhibit, 
we expect our professors to 
appear in class, not only pre- 
pared but excited and ex- 
tremely interested in teaching 
us. They are not supposed to 
think about places they would 
rather be, or about the many 
complex problems that they 
may be faced with daily. I 
have sat in classes where not 
one student asked a question. 
No student even acted inter- 
ested in what their professors 
were trying to convey. In ess- 
ence, there cannot be an ideal 
teacher unless there are also 
ideal students - students who 

are equally excited about 
their presence in the class- 
room, and their opportunity 
to participate in the learning 
process. Education is inter- 
active and reactive. If this 
gift from God, which we call 

education, is to be complete, 

each person must participate 

dynamically in his or her 

own enlightenment.

Women hold cage tryouts 

By Jeff Bargmann 

The Women's Intercol- 
legiate Basketball Team held 
try-outs in the gym last Mon- 
day for women interested in 
playing with the Regals this 
up-coming season. Although 
Monday night was officially 
for try-outs, Nancy Trego, 
thewo men's basketball coach, 
said that "all interested play- 
ers are welcome" to still 

come and try-out for the 
team. Team practices will be 
held Monday thru Thursday 
nights from 6 - 8 p.m. 

The Regals will face many 
tough teams both in pre-sea- 
son and league games. The 
first pre-season basketball 
game of the 1977-78 year will 
be Thursday, December 1st, 
against Southern California 
College. The two teams will 

Seniors lead Calu 

Kingsmen into 
post season play 

By Brad Retd 

Seventeen young men who have endured through last years 
disappointment of not being able to compete in the playoffs 
are finally there. Tomorrow at 1 :30 p.m. they will square off 
against undefeated Linfield College of Oregon. These players 
are looking at possibly two more of a long line of football 
games. With their careers practically behind them, you know 
that they'll be playing for keeps. 


Eddie Gee 

The Kingsmen won their final regular season game last 
week at Azusa Pacific by a score of 29 - 6. But the game was 
much different than the score indicates. The Lu lost their 
starting quarterback and safety, who were taken out ofter a 
first quarter melee and falling behind 6 - 2 they managed to 
squeeze an 8 - 6 lead into the locker room at halftime, 

It wasn't until Azusa came out with their "Lonesome 
Cougar" offense {I'm almost too embarrassed to tell you about 
it, but it has something to do with leaving most of the team 
on one sideline and 2 players on the other with the center 
and quarterback stranded in the middle} that the Kingsmen 
decided they'd had enough. 

Eddie Gee started things off by tearing one lonesome cougar 
away from the ball on a pass play and giving the ball to the 
offense on the 11 yard line, On the second play following, 
Rick Yancey carried in for the score. Two players after the 
ensuing kickoff, Gee once again got the ball back for the 
Kingsmen, this time intercepting a pass on the Cougar 28. This 
time Casey McLaughlin (16 of 25 for 179 yards) threw to 
Harry Hedrick on the first play for a touchdown extending 
the lead to 22 - 6. From there, it was all CLC as they proved 
that they really were ready to enter the playoffs. 


John Kindred 

This year there could be no stopping the Kingsmen. After 
a tough week of workouts, they will be ready for a team that 
averaged over 400 yards total offense per game and boasts 
that they can score 28 points against anyone. Mount Clef 
Stadium will once again ring with the sound of NAIA playoff 
action. So don't lose your ticket, buy your cowbell and get 
out early so you'll have a good vantage point from which to 
take in all the action. 

Kingsmen hoopsters get in 
shape for '77-'78 season 

By Michaela Crawford 

As the football season 
draws to an exciting conclu- 
sion, the next season is warm- 
ing up in the gym. The suc- 
ceeding athletes to dominate 
the sports scene will be the 
Kingsmen basketball players. 

The team has been prac- 
ticing for several weeks and 
currently is participating in 
pre-season scrimmages. The 
scrimmages are played in 
three twenty minute periods. 
In these "games" everyone 
plays, and the coach is free 
to experiment with different 
offensive and defensive com- 

The varsity basketball 
coach, Don Bielke, stated, 
"We looked good in the first 
two scrimmages." The next 
two will be to ready the team 
for the San Diego tournament 
over Thanksgiving. 

In the first scrimmage, 
CLC proved victorious against 
Ventura Junior College at 
Ventura. The purple and gold 
then played Oxnard Junior 

College on November 8 in 
the Kingsmen gym. 

The skirmish was very 
physical as both teams played 
full out. A few spectacular 
back door plays highlighted 
the activity of returning for- 
ward Steve Carmichael. Mike 
Eubanks, who red shirted last 
year, exhibited clever moves 
to sink several jump shots 
ana, at tne other end, to con- 
trol defensive rebounds. 

The guards showed fine 
play with overall good outside 
shooting in a fast running 
game. Two players seeking 
positions as guards in the 
starting line-up are Dave Tay- 
lor, a junior transfer from 
Orange Coast College, and 
Brian Campbell from Reedly, 

The two high post men, 
returning starter Dave 
Blessing and freshman big 
man Dave Howard, showed 
strength on the boards in their 
respective periods. Randy 
Peterson, up from last year's 

play in the CLC gym starting 
at 7:00 p.m. Other opponents 
in the pre-season schedule in- 
clude: CSU Dominguez Hills, 
January 7th ;CSU Northridge, 
Thursday, January 24th; and 
Point Loma, January 17th. 
All of these games will be 
played at CLC. Some away 
games will be against Pepper- 
dine, Point Loma, and South- 
ern California College. 

Leaguecompetttionfor the 
Regals will begin on Thurs- 
day, January 26th against 
Ambassador college. This will 
be a home game for the wo- 
man's team, with competi- 

tion beginning at 7:30 p.m. 
There is a total of ten league 
games with CLC playing five 
different schools on two oc- 
casions each. The five teams 
to be faced by the Regal 's 
are Ambassador, Azusa, Chap- 
man, California Baptist, and 
Westmont college. 

If this sound like a very 
difficult schedule you're 
right because it is. If you are 
a woman who wants to play 
on the team, or at least try- 
out, feel free to come down 
to the gym Monday thru 
Thursday between 6 - 8 p.m. 
and, who knows!!! 

JV, also pulled down several 
offensive rebounds and had 
good shot selection. Joe Har- 
jung, who was injured, is also 
up from the JV's. 

Three additional varsity 
members returning to this 
year's squad are Cary Hegg, 
Hank Smith, and Reggie 
Walker. Besides the rookie 
center, Howard, freshmen in 
the line-up are Kevin Slattum, 
Mark Caestecker, Randy 
Dumouchel and Steve 

Other freshmen who may 
be members of the upcoming 
JV's are Mike Jones, Mike 
Ward, Bruce Minnich, Johnny 
Walker, Nick Dooley, Clay 
Salisbury and Tim Pomeroy. 

The varsity team may also 
be augmented by the talents 
of Larry Thiesen, who red 
shirted last year do to an 

injury, and several football 
players who hope to be at 
practice after the play-offs. 
Tentatively, these are return- 
ing starter Brad Reed, Steve 
Dann, Kent Puis, and Mark 
Christen sen. 

Coach Bielke intends to 
employ a high post offense 
rotating from the top of the 
key. His defense will be man 
to man. Bielke said, "The de- 
fense is improved. The players 
are still trying to work with 
each other and see what types 
of moves they make." 

Bielke will be assisted this 
year by Greg Ropes, who 
previously coached at Thou- 
sand Oaks High School. 

Overall, Bielke feels, "The 
team is improving." The 
Kingsmen should be ready to 
start their busy schedule in

By Margaret Hartung 

CLFL football play-offs 
will take place Friday, Nov- 
ember 18, at 3:00 and 4:00 
p.m. on the north field. Three 
teams are tied so far, having 
won five games and lost one. 
They are the Crickets, the

The battle between The 
Force and the Moonies on 
Friday, November 11, at 4:00 
resulted in a 20-8 victory by 
The Force, placing that team 
in the final play-offs. Gary 
Pederson scored two touch- 
downs and Shawn Howie, 
one to win it for The Force. 
Shawn Howie made a key in- 

terception in the end zone to 
foil the Moonies' plans for a 
win. Eric Olson scored for 
the Moonies. 

The Raiders defeated the 
Robots by a score of 33-12 
under the flaming sky Friday. 
(Referee Scot Sorensen called 
an "aesthetic" time-out to 
look at the sunset.) Among 
those to score for the Raiders 
were Steve Ginther, John 
Thompson and Wendy Fuller. 
Steve Yeckley scored one 
down for the Robots. 

At 3:00 the Munchies beat 
Bombers 18-6. The Coolies 
forfeited to the Brewers, and 
the James Gang won over 
Teddy's Bears by forfeit.

ratio high at CLC 

By Margaret Hartung 

CLC has the highest number 
of administrators in relation to 
faculty members according to a 
recent comparative study of 
small liberal arts colleges in the 
Los Angeles vicinity. Loyola- 
Marymount had a median stu- 
dent/faculty ratio of 17 to I. 

The student body figures con- 
tain both undergraduate and 
graduate students. Continuing 
students are not included in the 
study, as their involvement in the 
college site is part-time only. The 
study was based on the 1975-76 
school year, as figures. 

In 1975 CLC had one admtn- 
for every 1.6 faculty members; 
there were 43 administrators and 
70 faculty members according to 
the catalogue. Occidental College 
had the next lowest ratio of ad- 
ministrators to faculty members 
- 2.5 to I with 45 administrators 
and 113 faculty. Loyola-Mary- 
mount was next with one admin- 

istrator for every 3.5 faculty 
members; they had 51 admini- 
strators and 178 on the faculty. 
Finally LIFE Bible College had 
a 12.5 to one ratio; they had 25 
on the faculty and two full-time 

The best faculty/student ratio 
was that of Occidental with 13.8 
students per faculty member. 
There was a total of 1,759 stu- 
dents with an operating budget 
of $10,778,902; $6,127 was spent 
per student. 

LIFE Bible College showed a 
student/faculty ratio of 24 to I. 
They had 600 students with a to- 
tal operating budget of $635,000, 
making their expenditure per stu- 
dent the lowest of the study 

Loyola-Marymount had 5,887 
students with a budget of 
$16,211,000. Their expenditure 
per student was $2,736. CLC 
showed a student faculty r^tio of 
17 to 1 and spent $2,163 per stu- 

dent with a total operating bud- 
get of $5,052,035. 

CLC had the greatest per- 
centage of the budget spent for 
instruction -- 40.3%. Loyola- 
Marymount followed with 38%; 
Occidental showed the lowest 
amount - 31%. Administrative 
and instructional costs were con- 
sidered one category at LIFE Bi- 
ble College; it was 47.09% of the 

Operations and maintenance 
was tne highest at LIFE because 
of its categories -34.38%. For 
Loyola-Marymount it was 7.5%; 
for Occidental, 9%; and for CLC, 

Administrative costs were 
20% for Occidental and 19.5% for 
Loyola-Marymount. The admin- 
istrative figure was included in 
instruction for LIFE -- 47.09% of 
the budget. It is impossible to 
say what percentage of CLC's 
budget was spent on administra- 
tive costs because there was no 
such category listed in The An- 
nual Financial Report For the 
Year Ended May 31, 1976. Such 
categories as Public Service, Aca- 
demic Support, and Institutional 
Support may include administra- 
tive costs. 

__ The championship game of the California Lutheran College football team's "Year of 

tiGTG COTTIG the Judges" is tomorrow against Westminster College, Pennsylvania. They earned the 
right to play by narrowly edging Linfield College in a 29 - 28 win on November 19.

Dorm collects 
funds for fun 

By Karen Hass 

Pederson dorm is now search- 
ing for ideas on how to spend the 
dorm dues given by each resident, 
according to R.A. Sue Warner. 
The dues, not yet collected from 
everyone, are $2 a person, with 
one hundred thirty three residents 
in the dorm. 

The dorm government, con- 
sisting of the R.A.'s, President 
Steve Houghton, Vice-president 
Julie Thompson, Secretary of the 
Treasury, Ruben Guzman, and 
Social Activities Chairman, Steve 
Yeckley, plan on a meeting soon 
to decide on the main activity on 
which to spend the money. If all 
the money is not spent, or if 
Pederson has a fund raising activi- 
ty to gain more money, then Presi- 
dent Houghton says, "We'll just 
wait till finals week and spend it 
all then." 

Suggested activities so far 
have been to rent a big boat and 
go clam or lobster diving in the 
ocean, have a beach party, a 
Disneyland trip, and a pizza party. 
Although residents do not have a 
direct vote on the activity decided 
upon, the government is planning 
on asking the residents their 
opinions by a poll. 

Contrary to the belief of some 
of the residents, dorm dues are 
not used at all for dorm damages. 

Financial aid 
meetings held 

It's that time again! Time to 
get your financial affairs in order 
so you can decide whether or not 
you can afford to come back to 
"the Lu" next year. The Finan- 
cial Aid Office is holding brief 
meetings beginning on November 
28 to inform you on how to fill 
out all the forms you will need 
to re-apply for Financial Aid. Re- 
member: Financial Aid is only a- 
warded for one year at a time so 
you must reapply every year. 
This year these meetings are very 
important because all the finan- 
cial aid forms are new and must 
be mastered once again! Call the 
Financial Aid Office and make 
an appointment to attend one of 
the meetings. The number is 492- 
2411, ext. 391. This is important 
for your future so don't delay,

Celebrate Christmas! 

'Lucia Bride', Caroling to crown evening 

By Pattf Behn 

The weeks of preparation are 
over. The stage lights illumine 
the risers as you and your fellow 
dormmates step up and take your 
places. The applause of the 
audience ring in your ears as the 
piano strikes the first note ... and 
you sing. 

Such will be the scene on 
Thursday night as the annual 
Lucia Bride celebration opens in 
the gym at 7:00 p.m. Votes will 
have been tabulated and the 
identity of this year's Lucia Bride, 
the senior girl chosen as most 
worthy of the title of the Swedish 
saint of light, and her attendents 
will have been revealed. 

The dorm caroling contest 
will fill the gym with song and 
determine which dorms are most 
worthy of the various awards, to 

be judged in terms or both musi- 
cal quality and originality. A 
flashlight pilgrimage up Mt. Clef 
will then occur, followed by a 
Christmas service and live re- 
enactment of the Nativity scene 
at the House on the Hill. 

This evening of warmth and 
the spirit of Christmas will then 
culminate with a reception in the 
gym. Cider and Scandinavian 
holiday cakes will be served and 
the awaited outcome of the 
caroling contest winners will be 

Lucia Bride has always beer. 
an exciting and meaningful night 
for us at CLC, with so many 
united to celebrate the wonder 
of Christ's birth. It is a time of 
joy and laughter for all, and each 
person is invited and urged to 
join together to make this year's 
Celebration the best ever.

Fly to Treeeflight' tonight 
at the Christmas dance 

The Social/Publicity Commis- 
sion of the ASCLC, in associa- 
tion with the Freshman Class, 
will present its "Christmasdance" 
tonight in the gym from 8:00 
p.m. untill midnight. 

"The dress for this special 
dance will be semi-formal," said 
Joel Gibson, Social/Publicity 
Commissioner. "However, wo- 
men will not be required to wear 
long dresses. Pants suits will be 
acceptable at this dance," Gibson 

The band for this dance will 
be "Freeflight," a seven-piece 
group composed of Mike Sanders 
on keyboards, Andy Belletti on 
tenor and alto sax, Frank Palum- 
bo on trumpet and flugelhorn, 
Jim Coulson on drums, Phil Neri 
on electric guitar, Mike Estrada 
playing Fender Bass, and Laura 
Bruce, who is the lead singer. All 

of the members of "Freeflight" 
are excellent musicians and have 
a wide musical range. 

"Freeflight" played on the 
Tomorrowland Terrace at Disney- 
land all summer, played at 
Knotts's Berry Farm for the Hall- 
oween weekend, and recently 
completed another engagement 
at Knott's for the Thanksgiving 

"This is not a dance you spe- 
cifically need a date for," stated 
Ann Jaehnig, Freshman Class 
President. "We have an excellent 
band and we would like to have a 
relaxing evening for the students 
the night before the NAIA 
championship football game," 
she added. 

The Christmas Dance tonight 
will be open to all students and 
admission is free.

CLC and Harry Hedrick pass by Linfield, 29-28, look to NAIA final with Westminster 

By Tom Kirkpatrick 

Those who were there know 
the story. Those who weren't 
have been told by now. 

The simole version savs that 
CLC defeated Linfield College of 
Oregon in the NAIA semifinals, 
29 - 28. The story, of course, is 
how the score ended up that way. 
If you didn't see it or even if you 
did you won't believe it. Nobody 
else does. The Miracle on 34th 
Street was a sideshow trick in 
comparison. Harry Hedrick, the 
man of the hour, or actually a 
little over seven minutes, appears 
a somewhat diminutive figure 
when he steps onto the field. 
Standing 5 ft. 1 1 and weighing in 
around 170 pounds he almost 
gets lost in the huddle. To Linfield 
he might as well be PaulBunyan... 
or Moses parting the Red Sea. 
Hedrick did everything and then 
some as he pulled CLC out of the 
role of loser, singlehandedly 
snatching victory from the jaws 
of the Wildcat^ 

It was a fourth quarter un- 
paralleled in Kingsmen football 
history. However, a game starts 
with the first quarter and this 
was no exception. 

Linfield, behind the excep- 
tional quarterbacking of "The 
Silva Bullet" opened a 14-0 lead 
with the first fifteen minutes of 
the game gone by. Things grew 
dark for Cal Lutheran as images 
of the 1975 debacle against Texas 
Lutheran loomed out of the past 
and scampered about the field. 
These haunting images grew 

starker as the Wildcats pulled 
away to a 21 -0 lead in the second 
period. The Kingsmen did manage 
to get on the scoreboard with a 
Brad Hoffman field goal before 
the intermission to leave the field 
trailing 21-3. 

Sitting through a special 
twenty-minute half time, words 
of gloom and doubt whistled like 
wind through the stands as the 
crowd began preparing itself for 
a frustrating loss. 

Now for the second half. 

CLC, taking the opening kick- 
off, showed why they earned a 
playoff spot by moving swiftly 
down the field toward six points. 
John Kindred, denied a thirty 
yard touchdown run on a perfect- 
ly executed quarterback draw 
because of a penalty, came back 
the following play to find Hedrick 
on a tightrope catch at the rear 
of the end zone. Add a Hoffman 
extra point and call the score 

Playing the defense that had 
sustained them throughout the 
season, the Kingsmen held the 
Wildcats scoreless in the third 
quarter. However, excepting the 
initial drive by the purple and 
gold, it was a standoff as the visi- 
tors put the lid on their opponents 
offense. Time was running out. 

Then came the momentous 
fourth quarter. 

Linfield was the first to up 
their score as they drew away to 
make the edge 28-10. With the 
clock ticking away and the two 
totals staring blankly from the 
scoreboard many in the crowd 
began to leave. ..and missed what 
proved to be the real show. With 
a little over nine minutes to play 
in the game, Kingsmen head coach 
Bob Shoup made a change in the

prove to be the undoing of the 
Oregon team.

it was up to Harry to come 
through on his lines. Hedrick had 
been plagued all day by double 
coverage. In the fourth quarter 
Shoup moved him to the same 
side as wide receiver Mike Hagen 
and brought in Rick Shoup for 
the position vacated by Hedrick. 
The result of this became evident 
as the remainder of the fourth 
quarter unfolded. Hagen would 
run a deep pattern drawing the 
the cornerback with him which 
would leave Hedrick one-on-one 
with the safety. 

The miracle began to happen. 

Hedrick began pulling in pass 
after pass, each one a gain of 
crucial yardage. The Cal Lutheran 
team marched down the field 
and added another touchdown 
and extra point making the score 
28-17. Now it was Linfield's 
ball. If they scored the ball game 
was as good as over. CLC's de- 
fense held. Then it did more that 
that. Or Hedrick did. Linfield, 
forced to punt, keyed on the out- 
side defenders to be sure that the 
punt would go uncontested. 
What they didn't count on was 
Hedrick slipping up the middle 
and blocking the punt, giving the 
Kingsmen the ball with superb 
field position deep in Wildcat 
territory. From there the Kings- 
men were led to another score by 
Kindred. Trying for a two-point 
conversion after the score that 
would have left CLC only a field 
goal away, Linfield held and left 

the score at 28-23. 

Only five minutes remaining, 
the crowd, only minutes before 
yelling forced words of encour- 
agement, was up and screaming 
sensing an electricity of promise 
* in the air. 

Linfield received the ensuing 
kickoff and began marching down 
the field. Then lightning struck. 
Silva dropped back and threw to 
his receiver on the left. Unable to 
hang onto the ball, it squirted 
from his grasp and rolled free. 
Right defensive half Steve Bogan 
pounced on the ball. Ruled a lat- 
eral-pass by the referees, the ball 
and momentum now belonged to 
CLC. Again it was Hedrick that 
they went to. And again he exe- 
cuted perfectly. Three plays later; 
a 32 yard deep out to Hedrick, 
a 28 yard pass to Hedrick, and 
finally an 8 yard scoring pass to -

who else - Hedrick and the Kings- 
men were on top 29-28. An un- 
believing CLC crowd went berserk 
in the stands while a stunned and 
dismayed Linfield team stood 
dazed on their sidelines as they 
waited for comprehension to set 

In the meantime the Kingsmen 
tried for a two point conversion 
and again it failed. 

Only two minutes remaining 
in the game but, as was apparent, 
anything could happen. 

Shoup, not wanting to take 
any chances with Linfields passing 
game, put in an additional defen- 
sive back. With safety Don Gud- 
munson injured earlier tn the 
game, he went to Harry Hedrick, 
the man of the day, who hadn't 
played defense since high school. 

The first play that the Wildcats 
ran ended an incomplete pass. 
The second play was a perfect 
throw ... into the waiting arms of 
mister-everything Harry Hedrick. 
CLC ran four plays and gave the 
ball back to Linfield. Completing 
,1 passes and with the aid of 
a fifteen yard penalty the visitors 
sat on the CLC 35 yard line with 
oniy two seconds remaining. 
Time enough for a field goal 
attempt. A fifty-two yardattempt. 
CLC lined up to attempt to block 
it but couldn't. The ball took 
off ... and fell short and wide to 
the left. Linfield was down for 
the count and time ran out on

They will arrive this Friday to 
give them time for rest before 
this final. They are reputed to 
have a big and strong offensive 
line as well as a defense that has 
limited their opponents to only 
five touchdowns in nine games. 

So it seems to match up as a 
game of defensive strengths with 
the offenses relying on their 
passing games. 

By 4:30 Saturday afternoon 
we should know who has the 
better of both.

CLFL still undecided 

By Margaret Hartung 

The Raiders and the Crickets 
won the CLFL co-championship 
in a game called due to darkness 
on Friday, November 18,at 5:15. 
The score was tied 19-19. 

The teams decided to accept a 

co-championship to forestall any 
more players getting hurt. Steve 
Ginther twisted his left knee after 
making the first touchdown for 
the Raiders. Defensive player

The CLC wrestling team won 
its first home bout for the 1977- 
78 season, defeating Whittier 
College 33-12, Monday night, 
November 21st. 

The match began with Steve 
Torres of Whittier pinning Moy 
Serrano during the third period 
of their bout, which gave Whittier 
a six point advantage. The second 
match was just the opposite, 
with Paul (masked man) Schwehn 
of CLC pinning Whitter's Charlie 
Boscarino, also in the third period 
of their bout. Matt Petterson of 
CLC, followed Schwehns example 
by pinning Whitter's Paul Bel- 
vouir. The team cumulative score 
was now 1 2-6, with CLC winning. 
The next two bouts of the even- 
ing were both in CLC's favor, as 
Scott Solberg defeated Whitter's 
Bob Smith, by a score of 10-2, 
then Whittier handed a forfeit, 
along with six points, over to 
CLC in the 153 pound division. 

The tables soon turned in the 
161 pound division, when Whit- 
tier's Roy (Tarzan) Wallace de- 
feated CLC Pete Sandburg by a 
score of 3-5. This match was one 
of the more exciting ones, as the 
score was several times tied and 
the crowd electrifying the gym 
with its enthusiasm. Another vic- 
tory for Whittier was in the 170 
pound division, in which CLC's 
Lance Marcus was defeated by 
Len Donvitto (District Champion 
last year), the match score being 

Kevin Wheator, CLC 180 
pound contender, also suffered a 
loss, as he was defeated by Mike 
Lancey with a score of 1-4. The 
final match of the evening pitted 
Tom Perez (CLC) against Mark 
Rossi. Perez started the bout 
agressively and went after Rossi 
as the 9-2 score at the end of the 
first period shows. The second 
period was not as successful for 
CLC as the first, but Perez was 
able to increase his lead to 15-6. 
The final score was 17-13 in 
favor of Perez. 

Although Whittier won a few 
bouts during the wrestling match, 
as a whole CLC was more stable 
and proved to be the better team. 
The CLC team worked for, and 
deserved the match win they

Kingsmen outclass 
USIU competition 

By Tom Kirkpatrick 

California Lutheran College 
basketball opened with an excel- 
lent team effort Thanksgiving 
weekend as they came away with 
a first place in the USIU Classic 
held in San Diego. 

It was a two game tournament 
with the prelims Friday night 
and the finals and consolation 
game played Saturday evening. 

The Kingsmen were pitted 
against Pomona Pitzer College in

tournament scoring 43 points in 
two games.

their preliminary warmup and it 
proved to be just that as they ran 
away and hid in the first half 
leaving the court with a 42-29 
winning margin. 

It began as a close contest 
with the Kingsmen holding onto 
a slim two point lead, 12-10, 
after the first few minutes of the 
game. Then CLC went into action 
and sealed Pomona's fate with 
twenty-two ananswered points as 
they pulled away to lead comfort- 
ably at 34-10. 

The second half was more of 
the same as Pomona was hope- 
lessly outclassed by the more 
physical and more talented Kings- 

The final score of the game 
was 94-73. The Kingsmen scoring 
was led by Dave Blessing with 20 
points, Brian Campbell with 15, 
Steve Carmichael with 14 and 
Brad Reed tallying 1 3. The Kings- 
men also controlled the boards 
led by Brad Reed who had 8 
according to the statistician and 
Blessing who followed with 7. 

In the second game of the 
night between LaVerne and host 
USIU, the Westerners jumped 
out to an early lead over the La- 
Verne team and held on in the 
second half to reach the finals. 

LaVerne managed to win the 
consolation game and then came 
the finals. 

The Westerners started out 
fast taking a 1 2 to 4 lead early in 
the first half. With ten minutes 
gone, CLC starter Reed severely 
twisted his ankle on a drive 
through the lane and put a damper 
on the team 

All was not disaster, however, 
as freshman Mark Caestecher 
came off the bench and per- 
formed superbly in Reed's place. 
It was tough going against a 
throttling man-to-man defense 
put on by their opponents but 
the Kingsmen battled back from 
a 27 to 21 deficit to leave at half 
leading 35-27. 

The second half was fought to 
a standstill as the Kingsmen final- 
ly won 72-64. Standouts were 
Blessing with 23 points and new- 
comers Dave Taylor and Caes- 
tacker who both came off the 
bench wi th great games. Also 
playing well was Randy Peterson 
who cleaned the boards and 
played heads-up ball. 

Blessing was named tourna- 

ment Most Valuable Player and 
was joined on the All Tourna- 
ment Team by Steve Carmichael 
who played excellent games on 
both nights and was a standout 
for the Kingsmen.

The semi-final game between 
the Raiders and the Mean Machine

two minutes of the game. All 
were long passes caught in or 
near the end zone. The Raiders

Faculty Board requests 11% pay raise 

By Jeff Bargman 

Next week when the Board 
of Regents meet, there will 
be one topic discussed that is 
of great importance to every- 
one attending CLC. The top- 
ic is faculty salaries, and in 
this meeting the Faculty 
Advisary Board will present 
its request for an 11% aver- 
age pay increase for next 
year. Last year the Faculty 
was given only a 3% raise, 
which rs hardly competitive 
with the 7% cost of living 
raise across the nation. 

According to Dr. James 
Evensen, at this low pay rate, 
most Faculty, "cannot afford 

grant to 


Dean Buchanan, Vice Pres- 
ident for Finance and Busi- 
ness at California Lutheran 
College, has received a short 
term study grant from the 
Exxon Education Foundation 
to study planning and budget- 
ing in small colleges. He was 
one. of five nationally chosen 
to receive the grant. 

According to Buchanan, 
he will visit 12 representative 
colleges, primarily in the East 
and the South who have 
demonstrated successful use 
of planning systems. 

Buchanan, who has long 
served NACUBO (National 
Association of College and 
University Business Officers) 
in many capacities including 
the Board of Directors, was 
Chairman of the Small College 
Committee which produced a 
publication on budgeting and 

"I feel the results of this 
study will probably form the 
basis for a revision or a sup- 
plement to the original 
manual on budgeting and 
planning," he said. 

The study grant is N'i sh 
weeks and Buchanan plans to 
be gone two weeks beginning 
November 28 and also for 
the month of January. 

He has been Vice Presi- 
dent of Business and Finance 
at CLC since 1973. 

the basic standards of living." 
"Many instructors are forced 
into getting outside income 
to supplement what they re- 
ceive at CLC," continued 
Dr. Evensen. "Many gradu- 
ating students are making 
more than the professors or 
assistant professors," he fur- 
ther stated. 

Last year CLC was about 
medium in salaries when 
compared to other colleges. 
"But," says Dr. Mike Wiley, 
Associate Professor of Chem- 
istry, "the other colleges all 
received raises and we have 
fallen behind." Wiley went 
on to say that there has, 

"never been a cost of l> v i°g 
raise," at CLC. Specifically, 
the pay increase at CLC goes 
like this: Instructors 5j*» 
Assistant Professors 7*> 
Associate Professors 2/iw, 
and Professors 8%. 

The reason that many 
Faculty members stay on at 
CLC, according to Evensen, 
is because "they feel deeply 
about this school and do not 
want to leave." He says that, 
"The President of the school 
could go on a campaign to 
raise funds" for the faculty. 
Evensen also feels that the 
Administration should be 

economically responsible" 
tor itself. Also, CLC "should 
"ot have to count on the 
students for the needed 
nioney," by raising tuition. 

Jack Ledbetter, Chairman 
w the Faculty Affairs Com- 
mittee, who sees increased 
student enrollment as a pos- 
sible source of income, says 
that "on Saturdays, many 
faculty members are work- 
ing to recruit new students 
for the good of the college." 
For this work, the partici- 
pating faculty "receive no 
compensation." Recruitina 
such as this is good for the 

college; and if the Faculty 
members receive no com- 
pensation they will discon- 
tinue this service. Fac- 
ulty recruiting may not 
sound impressive, but for 
every four year student they 
bring in, it nets the college 

According to Wiley, next 
year's budget does not make 
any allowances for salary in- 
crease. In other words, says 
Wiley, "Next year's budget is 
raised on this year's salary." 
The biggest problem of sala- 
ries, is where to get the 
money. The Administration 

cannot just allocate a certain 
amount of funds to pay the 
Faculty, it would then be 
short in other areas. For 
example, Wiley, computed 
that "If every Faculty mem- 
ber's salary was increased by 
10%, there would be no 
money left over in the bud- 

There has to be some im- 
provement or compromise 
between the Faculty members 
and Administration. If not, 
states Evensen, "Many Facul- 
ty members will be forced to 
leave here."

By Mary Dalgleish 

Will ASCLC students be 
able to relax in a Jacuzzi after 
a hard night studying? They 
will if Dave Hagen has his 
way. Hagen, The ASCLC 
Vice President, said that 
though faculty response was 
poor, the students "are exci- 
ted about the possibilities of 
a project like the Jacuzzi." 
However, despite the enthu- 
siasm, the project has reached 
a stalemate. 

Hagen, and the other 
members of his committee 
have been looking at differ- 
ent packages offered by pool 
companies. They expect to 
find a Jacuzzi for approxi- 
mately 2,000 dollais. The 
Jacuzzi will be at least ten 
feet in diameter, and have a 
capacity of at least twenty 
students. The location of the

Hagen believes that the 
tub will not be expensive to 
maintain; he said that main- 
tainance will be done by the 
pool staff and under the pool 
budget. The intial cost Hagen 
hopes will be paid by a com- 
bination of : the John Wood- 
en Basketball camps, the 
tennis camps and other 
summertime inhabitants; 

faculty groups, and the stu- 
dents themselves. Hagen has 
already contacted the Dallas

Committee beefs up 
on fresh objectives 

By Teri Slothower 

The Food Committee 
held their weekly meeting on 
November 31, and covered 
three topics; 1) "Renew the 
Lu" day menu, 2) concerns 
of the cafeteria, and 3) sur- 

A subcommittee is being 
formed within the group to 
provide two surveys intended 
to record students personal 
and realistic expectations of 
the cafeteria. One survey 
will be given during interim 
in hopes of receiving a surge 
of original ideas from the 
new students. The second 
survey will be administered 
at the beginning of the spring 
semester, reaching out to the 
returning students, asking 
for their experienced feed- 

"Renew the Lu" day will 
begin with a hearty breakfast 
of orange juice, cranberry 
waffles, eggs, sausage, and 
fruit. This delicious meal 

prepares all the workers for a 
Bar-B-Q steak lunch served 
with potato salad, corn on, 
the cob, carrot and celery 
sticks, french rolls, a choice . 
of milk or punch, and for 
dessert there will be ice 
cream cones. The estimated 
value of this meal in $3.50 
per person. 

The Food Committee is 
also aware of the cafeteria's 
problems and concerns relat- 
ing to the students. Those at 
hand include the great 
amount of waste produced 
at every meal by students 
taking much more than they 
can eat. With less waste at 
every meal, the money saved 
could be put into better meals. 
Students should also be re- 
sponsible for getting their 
trays over to the kitchen. A 
lack of responsibility here 
and failure to report food 
spills causes the staff addi- 
tional and unnecessary labor. 

Tomorrow, paint and hammer on campus

Carol enjoys a wide range 
of activities from athletic 

pursuits and the beach to her 
physical therapy major and 
music. Currently, she is parti- 
cipating in preparing for the 
Concert Choir Christmas per-

volleyball season is over she 
says, "I'm just studying and 
working things out for Inter-

busy Interim with two inde-

physical therapy office in 
Thousand Oaks, and the 
other would be a study in 

psychology. However, 
also said that her "first objec-

Carol's busy schedule was 
interrupted by the letter in-

expected it, she replied, "No, 
I'm just going 'why me?' I 
think it's pretty funny, real 
nice, but I'm surprised. I 
didn't think it was real. I was 
really surprised!" 

Her surprise was reflected 

in the responses of her par 
ents. Her mom was "real sur- 
prised" and her dad "just 
laughed" and teased her. 

Carol intends to complete 
her senior year here at CLC 
by applying for graduated 
school in physical therapy 
and perhaps playing intercol- 
legiate tennis. Whatever she 
does, the first half of her 
senior year has been eventful 
for her and CLC. The second 
half of her year promises to 
be just as fulfilling.

Did you notice a slightly 
smaller student eating in the 
cafeteria last week? No need 
to worry-he's not enrolling 
yet. Randy Smith, first grader 
from Crestview Elementary 
School in Huntington Beach, 
was just visiting the college 
to see if he will like it when 
he gets older. 

Randy, cousin of senior 
Shawn Howie, lived in 
Thompson 114 for the four 
days he stayed here. Unfor- 
tunately, Randy didn't stay 
long enough to learn the 
names of the people who 
cam in contact with him. 

Six-year-old Randy would 
like to be a police officer 
when he gets older. However, 
"I don't know for sure-may- 
be 1 won't be one," says 
Randy about his future. Pos- 
sibly he'll become an Admi- 
nistration of Justice major. 
Why become a policeman? 
"Because they're nice" and 
"Thev have guns and they 
handcuff people," says 

Randy's main hobbies are 
watching T.V. and sleeping. 
His favorite shows are 
"Chips", "Xdam-1 2," "Char- 
lie's Angels," "Starsky and 
Hutch," and "Road Runner"

During his four-day stay 
here at CLC, Randy experi- 
enced classes, the cafeteria, 
and general campus life. 
Randy thought that classes 
were "a little bit boring and a 
little bit fun." 

Would he like to attend 
CLC sometime in the future? 
"Yes. It's good to be here 
and the people are friendly- 
nice, really nice." However, 
Randy is not too sure that he 
would like to live in co-ed 
dorms. "Kinda yes, kinda no" 
was his description of the 
present co-ed dorm situation. 

According to Randy, "It's 
good to be here and it's fun 
here," and he also thinks that 
"There are some good looking 
girls here." Would he like to 
come back and visit CLC 
again? "I'd like to. I don't 
know if I can, " says Randy. 

Randy Smith, first grader,

CLC society's high point 

By Cindy Saylor 

The mirrored ball circling 
above the crowd was just one 
aspect that made the CLC 
Christmas Dance the high- 
point of this semester's social 

It reflected a lot of effort 
and enthusiasm by the 
ASCLC to make this dance a 
success. And it was. Expect- 
ing it to be just another or- 
dinary dance, many people 
were overwhelmed by the 
excellent performance of 
l-reeflight, the 7 member 

They began with Serpen- 
tine Fire by Earth, Wind and 
Fire. Laura Bruce, the lead 
vocalist, a mere 17 year old, 
displayed superb talent with 
songs such as We're All Alone 
and Sir Duke. 

But the true juice of the 
evening was Mike Sanders on 

keyboards. He proved I 
possibly the best keyboard 
player on the dance band 

Though more slow dances 
were desired, the low lighting 
and dressiness of the night 
brought forth an opportunity 
to escape from academia into 
a mood-fitled evening. 

Spirits mounted as the 
Kingsmen Varsity Football 
seniors, were introduced and 
praised, by Coach Shoup and 
the crowd. Though it could 
easily have become a pep 
rally, it didn't. The athletes 
were formally honored before 
their last college game and 
this brought an added emo- 
tion to the night. 

i All in all, if the event itself 
didn't catch a few people by 
surprise, the mistletoe surely 

genuine (would you believe) French bread (if you watch 
carefully, you'll even see the well-known slender loaves 
known as baguettes, being carried to the kitchen). On the 
walls are hung reproductions of Renoir and Manet - shades 
of impressionism! A huge brick fireplace invitingly warms 
your feet, while the excellent wines can warm your heart (by 
the way, the house wines are Mondavi). 

And as you and the evening are progressively mellowing, 
sit back and enjoy typically French strains of Edith Piaf, 
Charles Aznavour, et. al. and pretend you're in France. You 
can even brush up on your French by chatting with at least 
two of the waiters, but all of the waiters are absolutely char- 
mants, frightfully chics (just remember not to do anything 
gauche!), and totally dedicated to providing you with service 
par excellence. 

Your being greeted at the door by the Maitre d'hotel 
Andre himself is just a prelude to what this delightful culin- 
ary escape has in store for you. Andre explained to me that 
he ever-so-patiently waited four years for his dream restaur- 
ant to be realized. And every minute was worth it! 

Now last, but certainly far from least -- the bill of fare. We 
started with an exquisite hors d'oeuvre —some of the best 
escargots I have ever eaten, delicately doused with the perfect 
amount of garlic and real butter. What a delight. But you 
might rather care to sample the onion soup gratinee or per- 
haps the pate maison. Then, the creamiest pea soup I have 
ever eaten was brought to the table after which we savoured 
each bite of a perfectly tossed salad, the crispiest imaginable 
with real French dressing (i.e., oil, vinegar, spices and flair). 
After each course - snails, soup, and salad -- a completely 
fresh table setting was placed before us. The French really 
know how to make even the simple changing of a place a per- 
formance. Well, after three courses and my being a one-hund- 
red stick of dynamite at this point, I couldn't exactly figure 
out where in the world I was going to put the entree, but 
nevertheless I waited (not without some trepidation -I didn't 
want to butst in the restaurant!), and was again thrilled to see 
placed before my eyes a masterpiece of French cookery -a 
feast for the eyes and the stomach. 

Of course, I sampled the other meals (and prayed fervent- 
ly that I would not pop at the seams), and can wholeheartedly 
recommend the seabass, the chicken tarragon, and the red 
snapper, and certainly would bet on the perfection of every 
item on the menu. 

Now, if after a meal like this you can down a chocolate 
mousse, creme caramel, or crepe, or dare to choose from the 
pastry wagon, more power (and calories) to you. 

If you really want an enjoyable evening without driving to 
Santa Barbara or Westwood, try 556 East Thousand Oaks 
Boulevard (telephone 495-8900} and if you dote on spending 
an incredibly ieisurely three hours immersing yourself in 
quality a la francaise, you can't walk (or waddle) away dis-

Newlywed Bill Simmons,

in 1975 and majored in

hand man. He helps supervise 
as well as organize the vari- 
ous working crews which set 
up events at CLC. Bill agrees 
that his two jobs and adjusting 
to married life keeps him ex- 
tremely busy. But he enjoys 
it. "I'm excited about work- 
ing at CLC because it gives 
me a different perspective of 
the entire college. Not having 
the pressures of academic 
performance, I can help stu- 
dents with their problems," 
says Bill. 

What about future plans? 
Bill intends to become a law- 
yer. He has applied at law 
schools in Washington, South- 
ern California as well as Wash- 
ington D.C. "But it all de- 
pends on where I am accep- 
ted," Bill adds. Cathy is 
presently a legal secretary for 
an attorney here in Thousand 
Oaks. When asked his feelings 
about his wife's job Bill 
stated, "We both feel good 
about it. After I become a 
lawyer, she will be able to 
understand the problems 
may encounter 

Bill is enjoying this time 
off from the daily routine of 
school. It is giving him time 
to analyze his outlook on 
school. "After going to school 
for sixteen years, you stop 
and think, 'Boy, I need a 
break!' " He later admitted 
that he was looking forward 
to attending law school and 
said, "This break will &j 
good for me. I think I *"' 
appreciate school a lot more

His life is alive with the sound of mu u ic 

By Kathy Hitchcox 

With both the sounds of 
WWII cannons and the ap- 
plause accompanying two 
and a half thousand perform- 
ances on stage still ringing in 
his ears, CLC music professor 
Gert Muser reflected, "Some- 
times you wonder if a little 
angel doesn 't sit on your 
shoulder and make sure every- 
thing turns out alright." 

Muser was born and raised 
in pre-World War II Germany. 
At the age of five he told his 
mother he was going to be- 
come a singer. "It was a very 
honored profession and quite 
possible to accomplish if you 
had the talent," heexplained. 
However, Muser's dream of 
becoming the most famous 
tenor in the world wasabrupt- 
ly broken at the age of six- 
teen, when his teacher in- 
formed him he wasa baritone. 
Yet, baritone or tenor, Muser 
explained, "It was my dream 
to be a singer all my life." 

Although the arrival of 
World War II changed Muser's 
life, he still managed to main- 
tain his education. Through- 
out the war he served as a 
courier to the Air Ministry, 
a pilot, and a communications 
officer. During this time, he 
was intermittently able to 
study in Stuttgart, Salzburg, 
Vienna, and Italy and finally 
receive his necessary degrees. 
This was due in part to his 
first place award in a music 
contest which prompted the 
Propaganda Ministry to allow 
him to continue his studies. 

At the end of World War 
II, Muser and 250,000 other 
men were imprisoned in a 
POW camp in France. As a 
lieutenant, Muser was for- 
bidden to work according to 
Geneva Convention policy 
concerning imprisoned offi-

cers. In order to fight the 
ensuing boredom, Muser and 
seven other prisoners formed 
a modern song ensemble. The 
American captain of the 
camp was so impressed with 
them that they were selected 
for special service. That was 
merely the beginning of a 
successful two year career. 
After the war, Muser pointed 
out, "We were the most 
successful vocal ensemble in 

Europe in those days." 

By the end of two years, 
Muser explained, "I wanted 
to sing as a soloist on my 
own." After his performance 
in the "Majic Flute at Sauer- 
britten, "A very prospering, 
promising career began." "[ 
have sung all over the world 
and in most of the big thea- 
tres," he related. 

During this period, Muser 
met and became the first 

acher of Fritz Wunderlich, 
w h«, in Muser's words, "was 
undisputably the most beau- 
tiful tenor voice we ever had." 
Twelve years later, however, 
Wunderlich was killed. 

Before his performance at 
t he State Opera in Vienna, 
Muser awoke to find he had 
lost his voice. "I could not 
speak anymore," he reflected 
sadly- After five months of 
treatment the infected nerve 
within his vocal chord healed 
and he was able to speak 

"I continued to sing al- 
though there was a certain 
fatigue," he stated. However, 
Muser admitted, "As a singer 
your vocal apparatus is the 
capital with which you 
work." Accordingly, he left 
the professional circuit be- 
hind to pursue a career in 

In the United States, 
Muser worked as an instruc- 
tor of the US Language Insti* 
tute, General Director of the 
National Opera Co., professor 
of music at colleges in Colo- 
rado and New England, and 
finally voice teacher at Cali- 
fornia Lutheran College from 
1961 to the present. He also 
received his Phd in vocal 

"I find teaching very ful- 
filling," he admitted, "You 
must be for your students." 
Since his tenure at CLC, 
Muser has instructed many 
award winning students in- 
cluding Andre Jordan, a Met- 
ropolitan Opera winner. 

Muser's philosophy and 
advice to his students involves 
the idea, "Either you go all 
out or hang behind. You have 
to know how to sell some- 
thing, hopefully something

The Lord of Life Luther- 
an Church, our church on 
campus, recently held church 
council elections. The court. 
cil stands as the administra- 
tion for the church, and the 
elected members provide for 
the continuity of the congre- 
gation's existence. The posi- 
tions are held for one year 
starting in the spring semes- 

Joy Hanson, Dan Ettner, 
Sue Candrea, Eric Olsen, 
Bruce Stevenson and Jane 
Vatcher were elected. Their 
aim for the coming semester 
will be to facilitate communi- 
cations between the congre- 
gation and the pastor, the 
pastoral staff, the Religious 
Activities Commission and 
the church as a whole. 

Good luck to those ser- 
vants of the congregation 
who have chosen to become 
an intentional and self- 
conscious expression of God's 
gathered people. 

The month of December 
is a busy time for the church, 
but a very special time. At 
CLC, we have advent services 
on Wednesday nights at 9:00 
p.m. These services are ex- 
perienced in the New Earth 
following Bible Studies. 
Come and join us! 

/Another -item, this Sun- 
day, Dec. 11th, instead of 
our usual Sunday worship, 
there will be a special Christ- 
mas Service. It's at the usual 
time, 11:00 a.m., but will 
include Christmas carols and 
lessons. Different people 
from the community will be

The Music Department at 
California Lutheran College 
will present its annual Christ- 
mas Concert on Saturday 
evening, December 10, at 
8:15 pm in the auditorium 
and again on Sunday, Decem- 
ber 11, at 3 pm. " 

"This is the College's way 
of saying "Merry Christmas" 
to the community and the 
public at large," commented 
Dr. C. Robert Zimmerman, 
"we have planned a Christ- 
mas program that includes 
sacred as well as popular 
holiday music." 

Under the direction of Dr. 
Zimmerman, the Concert 
Choir will present the beloved 
Ave Maria in three different 
arrangements as a Gregorian 
Chant, by Anton Bruckner 
and G. Strickling. They will 
also sing the Lullaby on 
Christmas Eve by F. Melius 
Christiansen with soloist 
Cathy Borst on Saturday 
evening and Lisa Lemm on 

Prof. Elmer Ramsey will 
direct the Concert Band in 
several selections among 
them Festival of Alfred Burt 
Carols and Rimsky-Korsa- 
kov's Procession of Nobles, 
and Giovannini's Ski Run. 

The melodious "L'Arle- 
sienne Suite No. II" by 
Bizet and Farandole's 

Intermezzo will highlight the 
performance by the Concert 

Following a brief inter- 
mission the combined concert 
groups, including the All 
College Choir, will be featured 
in "Sing We All Noel." This 
segment of the program, 
under the direction of Prof. 
Ramsey, will include many 
favorite Christmas carols, 
among them God Rest Ye 
Merry Gentlemen, I Saw 
Three Ships, The Three Kings, 
and the CLC Chimes and 
Silent Night as arranged by 
Dr. Zimmerman. More 

than a dozen students will 
perform in small group en- 
sembles, and as soloists. 

The 1977 Lucia Bride will 
also be introduced to the 
audience at the concerts. 
This time honored tradition 
at CLC is observed each holi- 
day season when a senior 
woman is chosen by her class- 
mates for exhibiting the 
qualities of service and self- 
lessness, Christian virtues of 
the renowned Saint Lucia, 
who died a martyr's death in 
Sweden. The Lucia Bride's 
court is composed of a prin-

lic wastes were found in 
the water supply.

But it seems that he will in 80 percent of the sam- 

only be able to legally pies. These wastes ex- 

ceeded safe federal drink- 
ing limits at more than half 
the sites. 

We've had access to the 
confidential reports these 
inspectors submitted. 
They're highly technical, 
but they tell an urgent 
story: our sources of fresh 
drinking water are being 
contaminated by industry. 

Interested Observer: 
Diplomats around the 
world are holding their 
breath over Egyptian 
President Sadat's Middle 
East peace proposals. Sa- 
dat is determined to bring 
Israel to the negotiating 
table with her Arab neigh- 
bors. The Palestinian 
opposition, however, is 
doing It j «st to sabotage 
Sadat's efforts. 

No one knows if Sadat's 
bold gamble for peace will 
succeed. But one 
knowledgable diplomatic 
observer thinks that 
Sadat's persuasions will 
bring positive results. He 
is Henry Kissinger, our 
secretary of state under 
Presidents Nixon and Ford 
and the architect of "shut- 
tle diplomacy." 

Kissinger told us pri- 
vately that he believes 
Sadat's bid for peace will 
by successful. Both the 
Israelis and the Egyptians, 
says Kissinger, are too 
deeply committed to let it 
fail now. Sadat's critics, 
claims Kissinger, will find 
"face-saving" excuses to 
accept the Israeli-Egyp- 
tian agreements. 

Amln's Intuition: Ugan- 
da's madcap dictator Idi 
Amin seems to have sec- 
ond sight. He began to 
warn Egypt's President 

Anwar Sadat against deal- 
ing with the Israelis before 
the idea ever occurred to 

Amin solemnly cau- 
tioned Sadat that Israel 
was like a person with a 
contagious cancer. Any 
Arab country that sits at 
the same table with the 
Israelis, he said, will come 
down with the disease. 

Amin has never forgot-

He has signed a deal with

Several weeks ago, my 
family and I were driving on 
the Ventura Freeway when 
we noticed an old foreign 
model car driven by a young 
man moving very erratically 
from one lane to the other 
causing almost two close ac- 
cidents. The driver created 
instantaneous anxiety and 
apprehension among the oth- 
er drivers. It was impossible 
to drive alongside this car 
without the imminent danger 
of being struck broadside as 
it was observed weaving in 
and out of the traffic lane. 

No one missed observing 
this reckless driver and in- 
credible as it happened that 
night, another car behind us 
kept on tailgating and flip- 
ping on his high beam! Our 
alternatives were either the 
divider or the foreign car 
which kept on swerving right 
and left. 

Fortunately, a CHP of- 
ficer came and promptly 
solved the probelm. We were 
tre'mely relieved that we 
;re spared from a probable 
serous accident. How many 
do the CHP men re- 
ceive more abuse than praise 
when ticketing the public 
which is uncalled for partic- 
ularly when you think of the 
serious consequences that 
might have happened. 


By Robyn Saleen, 

Recently, it has come to 
my attention that the stu- 
dent body here at CLC does 
not seem to care what is 
done with their money. By 
this I mean that it appears no 
one realizes that much of our 
student fees are spent for our 
benefit and enjoyment. This 
is obvious from the fact that 
there is such poor student 
turnout at cultural and enter- 
tainment activities. I find it 
appalling that at all the Artist/ 
Lecture features, the major- 
ity of the audience are mem- 
bers of the community, not 
college, and are primarily 40 
to 70 years old. The Artist/ 
Lecture Series is a college 
function designed primarily 

for the students. As many of 
the lectures and features pre- 
sent aspects of life outside 
our usual environment, they 
offer intellectually and cul- 
turaly stimulating experien- 
ces. Lack of interest in this 
suggests to me the narrow- 
minded and indifferent at- 
titudes the students must 

Equally amazing to me is 
the apparent lack of enthu- 
siasm for activities designed 
to entertain. I would think 
that if students did not want 
to listen to a speaker or ob- 
serve an acting troupe, they 
would at least like to go to 
the Barn and listen to a live 
band or watch a Marx Broth- 
ers film for an hour or two 
on a Friday or Saturday 
night. A classic example of 
student apathy in this matter 
is in the fact that at a recent 
Barn show where a live band 
performed, there were five 
people in the audience--my- 
self and the girl who works 
in the Barn included. While 
it was embarrassing for both 
the band and the audience, 
it was equally expensive. The 
band was signed to play for 
an hour (whether anyone 
showed up or not) and was 
paid $350 for their perfor- 

Another shock to me was 
the turnout, or rather lack of, 
at the Beatles dance. Perhaps 
this would not have been 
such a shock if 80% of the 
student body had not expres- 
sed a desire for a Beatles tape 
dance. To be specific, Social/ 
Publicity Chairman Joel Gib- 
son conducted a survey last 
spring on student musical in- 
terests and 80% of the stu- 
dents replied that they would 
be in favor of having a Beatles 
dance. Thus, it seems a little 
odd that probably twenty 
people showed up over the 
four hour event. 

Essentially, I think it 
comes down to student apathy 
reaching even into areas of 
entertainment, thought, and 
just plain fun. Events ARE 
publicized- each student re- 
ceives a bi-weekly calendar of 
activities, signs are posted in 
the gym, cafeteria and dorms, 
and any social activities com- 
mittee member can tell you 
what activiites are planned. 

Either students need to 
open their eyes and ears to 
what is offered at this college 
or they need to re-examine 
their priorities and perhaps 
all this money and time that 
is spent on them can be spent 
on something or someone else 
that will appreciate it. After 
attending so many college 
functions where I constituted 
20% of the audience, the lat- 

ter seems the reasonable alter- 
native. As a student who en- 
joys many of the activities 
offered here, I would hate to 
see them discontinued be- 
cause of ignorant lack of in- 


By Michael Gibbons, 

When evaluating a success- 
ful cross country team rnaTn/* 
contingencies are involved. 
The most obvious is winning.' 
Every sport is measured by 
how many games you won or 
in this case meets. However, 
there are many factors un- 
known to the average fan. 
Distant runners are very sen- 
sitive and success is measured 
by meeting their basic needs. 
They must feel like they have 
improved during the course 
of the year. They also must 
feel that their potential is be- 
ing brought out. How do you 
accomplish these basic needs? 
The single most important 
factor is coaching. A coach 
will either make you or break 
you. He must relate to the 
runner as a individual but al- 
so bring about team unity. 
He must be out on the track 
timing the runners, watching 
out for possible injuries, set- 
ting up workouts, be a inspir- 
ation to the runners and 
most important be an effec- 
tive teacher. 

Well, the cross country 
team here at CLC doesn't 
have these basic needs met. 
Interestingly, the season was 
a winning one compared to 
previous years but still many 
runners expressed disillusion- 
ment with the season. The 
most persistent gripe was the 
lack of coaching. At CLC the 
cross country coach is Don 
Green who is also athletic 
director and football coach. 
How does he coach both 
sports as well as being athlet- 
ic director? He doesn't. It s 
impossible for him to coach 
football as well as cross coun- 
try and be devoted to both. 
He must concentrate his en- 

ergy on only one sport 

So he 

coaches the football team 
and leaves the cross country 
team in the hands of Steve 
Blum a distance runner who 
graduated last year from CLC. 
Blum is a good runner but 
lacks the training of the tech- 
niques of track and most run- 
ners on the team know as 
much as he does. So the basic 
need of improvement issome- 
what hindered because Blum 
is not experienced enougn to 
help the runners improve- 
There has been talk a- 
mong the cross country run- 

ners of leaving CLC. Their 
basic needs are not met. 
They expected more exper- 
ienced coaching here at CLC 
and instead found no coach- 
ing at all. 

A coach must set up work- 
outs. However, here the run- 
ners set up there own work- 
outs. This promotes a lacka- 
daisical attitude and motiva- 
tion is non-existant. A cross 
country coach must prepare 
his runners like a coach on a 
football team prepares his 
players for the upcoming 
game. He must train you for 
the upcoming meet and ded- 
icate his energy towards his 
runners. He has to know if 
you're working too hard or 
too easy. These situations 
are not being fostered here 
at CLC. 

What conclusions can you 
draw from this report? One is 
that a coach is badly needed 
at CLC or many outstanding 
runners will be lost for next 
season. Coach Green as ath- 
letic director is getting paid 
for coaching a sport he does 
not even participate in. I feel 
it is hurting the runners as 
well as the school. The con- 
cern by coach Green may be 
there but the energy needed 
for a cross country season is 
not. Coach Green needs to 
make a decision to either 
dedicate his energy towards 
the football team and hire a 
cross country coach or vice

Since I have been at the 
Lu the football team has been 
the focus of controversies 
ranging from Dual Member- 
ship to getting steaks at meals. 
I would like to set all of that 
aside now and say how I feel 
about the 1977 Kingsmen 
team. I think you guys are 

When I entered CLC I was 
brainwashed that football 
players were nothing but a 
"bunch of Jocks". I would 
like to try to debunk that 
myth by saying that some of 
the highest caliber people 
around here were members 
of the 1977 Kingsmen team. 
I want to congratulate you as 
a team and as individuals for 
a fantastic season. Your hard 
work and dedication paid off 
in many ways around our 
campus. I have never seen 
excitememt and jubilation 
equal to that surrounding the 
last few minutes of the Lin- 
field game. I have really 
enjoyed participating from 
the sidelines watching as you 
have displayed your superb 
abilities. I will.always remem- 

ber the 1977 Kingsmen as 

Ending a season in the 
No. 2 position on a national 
level is outstanding. You are 
No. 1 in my book and I am 
sure that I speak for the ma- 
jority of the student body. 
Thanks for tht 

Mike Bartosch 
Head Resident 

To the Editor, 

I would like to say that 
no matter the outcome, CLC 
showed great poise, good 
leadership, fine ability, know- 
ledge, and sportsmanship as 
it hosted a multi-talented 
Westminster, Pa. team that 
arrived on Thursday looking 
to take home with them the 
name of NO. 1. 

Both teams were magnifi- 
cent, the coaches used fine 
game plans and the crowd 
was overwhelming. 

Sure, I wanted CLC to 
win, because I work here, 
and knowing these students 
is an utterly fantastic experi- 
ence. They are proud, coura- 
geous, enthusiastic, friendly, 
high spirited people who are 
obtaining a fine degree of 
knowledge from a very excel- 
lent staff. 

I stay in the background 
with my co-workers and think 
to myself that one day these 

kids will be the leaders and 
just as in many colleges the 
schools of learning these are 
many more kids trying to get 

We may have lost a bah^ 
game kids, but the CLC spirit 
is still NO. 1.

The off-campus student 1 
of CLC are upset with the 
lack of publicity on campus 
for school events. I have 
been down to the cafeteria 
and have seen the many signs 
advertising events half of 
which I haven't heard of. The 
cafeteria is not the only place 
to publicize activities. Com- 
muters have missed out on 
such thingsas Las Vegas Night, 
some of the homecoming 
events, and films shown in 
the gym. 

I urge all those involved in 
publicizing events to notify 
Don Hossler, Student Activi- 
ties Director, of the event so 
that it can be printed on the 
calender mailed to commuters 
every two weeks. Entries in 
the calender are kept to a 
minimum of words so many 
details are excluded. The best 
way, then, to publicize your 
event is to put as many signs 
as possible on the many bul< 
letin boards located through- 
out the campus. 

Despite this years lack of 
publicity, the situation has 
improved over last year. With 
the activities hotline, a weekly 
newspaper, the activities 
schedule posted in the Stu- 
dent Union Building, and 
events properly publicized on 
the bulletin boards, the com- 
muters will have few excuses 
for being uninformed.

Eubanks, Blessing lead 
cagers to victory 

By Rick Bier 

"It's good to win the first 
home game after being on 
the road the first five games," 
commented coach Don 
Bielke after he watched his 
Kingsmen come from behind 
to defeat the Redlands Bull- 
dogs 77-74 on Tuesday night. 

In the first half, the Lu's 
scoring came from Dave 
Blessing and Mike Eubanks, 
with 15 and 12 points, re- 
spectively. Seven other 
Kingsmen played in the half 
with Steve Carmichael scor- 
ing 4 points and freshman 
Mike Ward scoring a bucket, 
on a thirty-foot, bank shot 
at the buzzer. Going into the 
locker room the Bulldogs 
held a 40-33 lead. 

With nearly six minutes to 
go in the game, Blessing and 
Carmichael made two excel- 
lent saves which led to a Mike 
Eubanks field goal that tied 
the game at 66. The Kings- 
men, not having had the lead 
since the opening minutes of 
the game, took the lead at 
68-66 and never looked back. 
The Lu got a scare when 
Redlands pulled to within 2 
points with 40 seconds re- 


Freshman guard Mark 
Caestecker increased the Lu's 
lead by sinking a pair of 
freebies with 25 seconds re- 
maining. The Bulldogs came 
roaring back and pulled to 
within 2 points with a quick 
field goal. Caestecker again 
went to the charity stripe, 
and sank the first of two 
freethrows to ice the game 
and insure the Kingsmen of a 
77-74 victory. 

Bielke stated, "Mike 
Eubanks played his best game 
of the season." Eubanks, a 
junior forward, led the team 
in both scoring and rebound- 
ing. He was 13 for 25 from 
the field, for 52%. Eubanks 
also pulled down 11 boards. 
Dave Blessing totaled 25 
points for the night. 

CLC took third place in 
the Cal Poly SLO tournament 
this weekend. In the opening 
game the Kingsmen lost 81- 
74 to a very strong Cal Poly 
team. The Lu came off a 
tough loss to CPSLO to find 
themselves playing sluggishly 
against Occidental. They 
played well enough to nip 
the Tigers 56-54. 


JV's lose 
tough home 

By Rick Bier 

The Junior varsity opened 
up its season against Red- 
land's under the direction of 
coach Greg Ropes. Redlands 
took a slim one point lead at 
half time 28-27. In the second 
half CLC had many chances 
to blow the Bulldogs out, 
but could never manage to 

"Never look a gift horse 
in the mouth" seemed to be 
their motto as they missed 
many free throws in the 
closing minutes of the game. 
They did play agressive ball 
only to fall short and succumb 
to the bite of the Bulldogs 
67-61. Dave Howard, 6 ft. 
freshman, led the Lu in 
scoring 18 points. Kevin 
"Get at 'em" Slattum, 
a Newbury Park High School 
product tossed in 11 points 
and steve McCravey tallied 
9 points.

gette Sbeard with 8, Terri 

Haynes with 7 and Ginny 
Green with 11. Conversely, 
the highest scorer for South- 
ern California College man- 
aged to make only 1 2 points. 
A big part of this easy vic- 
tory, according to Nancy 
Trego, the womens' coach, 
is due to the fact that this is 
Southern California's first 

season in womens basketball. 
What a way to start a new 
season, in a new spot. 

The second game of the 
Regals 1977-78 season was 
not as pleasant as the first. 
The opponent was Pepper- 
dine, who more than defeated 
CLC by a score of 94-29. 
Quite the opposite of South- 

ern California, Pepperdine 
has an already established and 
experier ^d team. Pepper- 
dine applied a fullcourt press 
to the Regals which resulted 
in many turnovers by CLC. 
The Regals were also outre- 
bounded by their opponent. 
The high scorer for CLC 
again was Linda Shields with 
10 points.

Another "CAL LU" foot-

end, and again the CLC stu-

to witness another fine foot-

A select group of students 
went all out to express their 
appreciation and high volume 
of spirit last week, when they 
constructed the tremendously 
large sign displayed on the 
cliffs overlooking the football 

field during Saturday's game. 

The sign, spelling out CAL

pie and gold, with the letters 

outlined in black. 

The project, under the di- 
rection of Don Weeks, was a 
success due to the extreme 
dedication on the part of 
many of the students in- 
volved, with the entire project 
taking more than 150 man 
hours. For example, Vicki 
Edgar spent a large part of 
her Thanksgiving vacation at 
her sewing machine, and with 
the help of Don, was respon- 
sible for the piecing together 
of the 35 sheets. Once the 
sheets were sewn together, 
the next step was a "test run" 
on the cliff, taking place at 
5:00 am, involving 10 dedi- 
cated students. The lettering 
was then stenciled in, and 
finally the sign was painted 
on the north field. The stu- 
dents involved in this supreme

ment, a number of the fans

that took place during the 
lowering of the sign. Adding 
to the disappointment, the 
sign was stolen Saturday 
night. We are anticipating the 
return of the sign, in hopes 
that the 22nd bullet will not 
have to be used.)

! Titans cannot be passed 
into the hands of defeat 

By Rick Bier 

California Lutheran Col- 
lege battled Westminster 
College of Pennsylvania in a 
bid for the NAIA Division II 
title. The Kingsmen led the 
Titans in all statistics but the 
rushing yardage and the most 
important statistic of all, 
points on the scoreboard. 
Westminster rallied from a 
nine point deficit, and scored 
17 unanswered points to suc- 

cessfully defend their title. 

In the second period of 
play, with minutes remaining 
Craig Kinzer intercepted a 
Steve Kraus pass inside the 
Kingsmen 10 yard line and 
returned it to the 17. It was 
there that John Kindred put 
the wheelsin motion. Kindred 

completed four consecutive 
passes for 65 yards, bringing 
the ball to the 18 yard line. 
From there he showed his 

gambling ability by gaining 
10 yards. Cal Lu could not 
) c °re six and had to settle 
for a 3-0 halftime lead. 

Late in the third quarter 
Jr 3 ' Lu began at the 32 yard 
•me with Kindred completing 
two passes of 11 and 26 yards 
to wide receiver Mike Hagen 
jnd another loss to Eric 
Murphy. The finale was an 
Jl yard reception by Harry 
Hedrick, good for a touch- 
down and a 9-0 lead due to 
we missed conversion at- 
tempt. The turning point of 
•he game came on the kick off 
return. The Kingsmen were 
called for a personal foul, 
which placed the ball for 
the Titans in their own 43 
yard line. Westminster's final 
play of the third quarter was 
a desperation effort. Second 
string freshman quarterback, 
Ray Lyerly handed off to 
Frank Rondinelli (offensive 
player of the hame) who 
eluded the pass rush and 
threw down field to Bill 
Stiger who leaped over Steve 
Bogan to make the reception 
and raced for the touchdown. 
The extra point left the Titans 
trailing by two points 9-7. 

The Kingsmen coughed 
up the ball on their own 19 
yard line just minutes into 
the final period when Steve 
Bogan fumbled on the punt 
return. The defense held, 
and forced a 11 yard field 
goal. The field goal was good 
for three points and that was 
all that was needed as they 
led 10-9. The Easterners 
added insurance points when 
Rondinelli proved that he 
was worthy of the offensive

Lu Renewal seen successful 

By Karen Coppage 

The day started at 8:30 in the morning with wake-up reveil- 
les, balloons, blasting stereos and sleepy but smiling faces. By 
9:00 am everyone had found their way down to the cafeteria 
some dragging their feet and some literally marching for break- 
fast and instructions. Looking around, one could see everyone 
was dressed for taking care of business including a few profes- 
sors and a smiling President Mathews. 

With all people at their stations, jobs were designated and 
the work was on. Paint brushes, hedge clippers and hoes were 
all in motion, most of them to music producing a beat that 
made progress go smoothly. 

Total involvement of the day was estimated at around 400 
people, with 297 at breakfast and 360 steaks served in the 
afternoon. An estimated 1 200 man hours for the day saved the 
school $3600 worth of work. Walt Miller, head of the mainten- 
ance crew who provided all the tools and took care of the 
pre-site preparation for the new park, was extremely happy 
about this. 

Not only did the Renew the Lu day produce a lot of fun, it 
produced comments as well. 

Damon Butler: "It's really fun seeing students and faculty 
get together and work. I hope we have one of these every 
year. ..does anyone know how to trim a palm tree?" 

Camille deFord: "This is the best idea that's come up all 

year! ,,., 

Dean Ron Kragthorpe: 'm having fun ... this is the 
biggest turnout I've ever seen and a lot of the credit should 
go to Craig for his energies. 

Cindy Saylor: "With Marty R ouse as ne | m5man for , 
renovation, I feel like the day is certainly worthwhile .. organ- 
ized and fun." 

Steve Houghton: "The enthusiasm of Pederson Dorm has 
been tremendous all year and more active than any other dorm 
in general, especially today." 

Al The Painter: "This is a great day .. real comradeship. It 
shows that this campus is together. A few years ago we did 
this but the turnout today was so much better." 

Bill Hamm, Assistant to the President: "This ought to be- 
come a tradition." 

When asked if he was having fun, Mr. Fonseca from the 
Spanish Department replied, "Oh, reasonably so," and contin- 
ued his hard working journey. 

After most of the work had been completed , Louie Soteriou 
and Lil Lopez had organized a delicious meal with steak, corn 
on the cob, rolls and ice cream that went down just right. 
Following this came the concert by "Orion" which provided 
relaxation and listening pleasure which rounded out the

Deficit hits the bottom 

By Maia Siewertsen 

According to Administra- 
tion sources, by May 31, 
1977, when the fiscal year 
books were closed, executive 
- administrators were made 
aware of an operating funds 
deficit of approximately 
$180,000. Deficits are no- 
thing new to CLC. In 1971, 
the college rose out of a one 
million dollar debt through 
hard work and careful plan- 

When it became evident 

that the deficit was as serious 
an amount as $180,000, Pre- 
sident Mathewsmetwith Dean 
Buchanan to find some way 
of handling the matter, some 
way that the final fiscal books 
could be balanced. 

According to Mathews, a 
decision was made to remove 
money held in savings ac- 
counts and add them to the. 
deficit to balance out the 
debt. This suggestion was 
brought up at the July Board 
of Regents meeting and duly 

passed. Had this suggestion 
become an actuality, the fi- 
nancial year books would 
have shown an operating 
budget deficit total of (nega- 
tive) -180,000 with an addi- 
tional line below it adding 
'S180.000 from other ac- 
counts to bring the second 
total line to zero, or balanced. 
This method would not have 
solved the deficit situation 
of the school, but hidden it 
and created a new '.'bottom

\ Barn removal fated 

jj By Jeff Bargmann 

The fate of the Barn, 

■ which has much tradition 

■ at CLC, is still not certain. 
There are, however, three 
main actions that could be 

* taken. The Barn could be 
: moved to some other part of 
the campus and used for stor- 
age, or it again could be 
moved to another location 
and used as faculty offices, 
or finally, it could'be placed 
close to the Sub, combining 
both the Barn and the Sub 
together. The one undeniable 
fact is that the Barn must 
be moved because it lies in 
the way of the new Learning 
Resources Center. 

After the Barn is moved, 
for it to provide the same 
food services it does now, 
"would require major revi- 
sion to upgrade it to health 
codes", comments Mr. Ron 
Kragthorpe, the Dean of 
Student Affairs. An alterna- 
tive to this, comments Craig 
Kinzer, President of t he 
ASCLC, is to "move the Barn 
itself next to'the Sub. That is, 
joining the two buildings to 
create a "multi-purpose room, 
where students can gather for 
good times," continues Kin- 
zer. The cost for the change- 
over would be payed for 
from funds coming out of 
Ihe "capital expenditures 

.budget" totaling $14,000. 

Another option for the 
Barn is storage, and this is 
what Kinzer sees as more 
than likely. The storage idea 
is more likely because, ac- 
cording to Kinzer, there are 
no costs involved and the 
great need of storage space at 
CLC would be met. Accord- 
ing to Kragthorpe, usage 
°f the Barn for "storage is 
very likely because "the Barn 
would require no rennovation 
if used in this way." 

According to Dean Mur- 

ley, the Barn is "an ongoing 

function of the institution," 

with much better use than

Senate and classes 
accomplish goals 

By Kathy Hitchcox 

"Except for a few minor 
problems, the Senate has 
worked well together," ex- 
plained Dave Hagen, as he re- 
flected upon the- achieve- 
ments of the Senate in the 
past semester. 

Hagen pointed out that 
attendance of senators is very 
high this year compared to 
the past, so that at every 
meeting there's been a quo- 
rum. The number of visitors 
to the Senate meeting has 
also increased this year. 

In the beginning of the 
semester, the Senate set three 
primary goals consisting of 
increased visibility, more di- 
rect services to students, and 
more student government 
advertising. An example of 
the Senate's attempt to pro- 
vide the students with in- 
creased visibility was evident 
when they voted to subsidize 
the National play-off tickets 
which gave dollars spent back 
to the students. The park, 
Jacuzzi, spring concert, and 
"Renew the Lu" also illus- 
trate activities designed to 
benefit the students: 

Along with the executive 
and legislative branches of 
the ASCLC are many com- 
missions and committees 
which have contributed to 
the accomplishments of the 
semester. In the Student 
Publications Commission, 
Commissioner Paul Brousseau 
explained, "The ECHO has 
firmly established itself as a 
weekly newspaper. It is 
presently considered the best 
newspaper the school has 
seen in fifteen years of pro- 
duction." The Athletic Com- 
mission has been working on 
a new, more comprehensive 
athletic policy. More meet- 
ings, organization, Bible stud- 
ies, movies, and receptions 
characterize the Religious 
Activities and Service Com- 

mission. All the dances, pub- 
licity posters, and the film 
"Fat City" highlighted the 
Social Publicity Commission. 
AWS, Associated Women 
Students, have increased the 
number of members this year, 
provided a survey to allow 
women students to voice 
their ideas, and co-sponsored 
several activies with AMS, 
the Associated Men Students. 
The major activities spon- 
sored by AMS include the 
tVorld Series bar-b-que at the 
Geology house, Las Vegas

lauds Urban 

By Jane Lee 

Dr. Charles Garofalo de- 
scribed the urban semester as 
"a nice compliment to tradi- 
tional forms of learning" in 
an interview with him con- 
cerning the new program. 
Garofalo is a newly hired 
faculty member at CLC who 
will be directing the urban 
semester which will begin in 

"It's valuable to relate the 
classroom to other kinds of 
activities," relates Garofalo. 
"And the urban semester is 
not only appropriate for stu- 
dents who have an interest in 
social work. The group of 
students who have expressed 
interest in the program are 
coming out of varied back- 

Some of the students who 
are participating are interes- 
ted in health, business, the 
arts, city planning, municipal 
governments, aging, adver- 
tising and communications.

Kinzer addresses students 

By Craig Kinzer 

This year as ASCLC President, my office 
has afforded me with vasi insight into how 
spirited, helpful, and enthusiastic the CLC 
student body really is. Each accomplishment 
related to the ASCLC is primarily due to the 
support of the entire student body. In addition, 
the faculty and administration have been very 
receptive to student government and provided 
students with the means to influence the 
successful growth of this institution. 

Looking back over this semester, I realize 
we have fulfilled many of the goals which the 
Senate and myself determined would be bene- 
ficial to the students. While tunning for office 
last May, I set many objectives or campaign 
promises which to a large degree have become 
realities. Although the Senate and the Presi- 
dent are both separate, this year these two 
branches hold cooperative and similar philoso- 
phies that enable us to work well together. In 
fact, this year's Senate is the most active, effec- 
tive, and dynamic Senate I've seen in my four 
years at CLC. 

The areas in which my office has shown 
the greatest influence deal with increasing 
students awareness about all facets of campus 
life, enlarging the student-professor rapport, 
bringing the college into closer fellowship 
through major activities, and leaving the 

campus with improvements of lasting signifi- 
cance for students to enjoy this year and for 
many years to come. 

A major step in student awareness devel- 
oped through my increased participation on 
th Board of Regents, particularly through my 
positions on the Regent's Spiritual Life/Stu- 
dent Affairs and Planning commit lees, stu- 
dents have more influence in areas such as the 
sale of land and capital expenditures. For 
example, the increased student input concern- 
ing the construction of Olsen Road and the 
possible sale of college land made a major im- 
pact on the Regent 's decision to depress Olsen 
Road, hold-off any land sale, and give assur- 
ance that the four lots constituting the New 
Park wil| be maintained. 

Improved areas of student imput include 
the expanded role of representation in college 
committees. Not only are there more voting 
students members, but also creating a new 
group of student chairpersons has provided a 
more direct line of communication to the 
student body. Traditionally, these students 
have played a major role in the shaping of 
policies and decisions related to all j->r»ects of 




ill all the 

hard-working, conscientious people 
committees. Also, since the appointments 
were made from a wide spectrum of students 
who responded to my campus wide memor- 
andum requesting applications, the diversity 
within the college is well represented. 

Another addition to student representa- 
tion is evident through the Food Services 

"You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours" was the motto 
of the Benson House recently when fleas invaded the premises. 
From left, Dona Robbers, Jane Vatcher, and Sue Bloemer exhi- 
bit what the bites could do to a person. trh a photo by Paul Brouwi- 

Benson House coeds 
invaded by fleas 

By Teri Slothower 

"I haven't had a good bite 
for weeks," remarked Val- 
orie Voss, a resident of Ben- 
son House. Fleas kept pop- 
ping up all over the house. 
First they were spotted down- 
stairs, then gradually the flea 
population moved upstairs, 
spreading everywhere. Jane 
Vatcher explained, "I first 
saw one while I was sitting 
downstairs during one of our 
weekly meetings. They must 
have also been in my bed, be- 
cause every morning when I 
woke up, I had a few more 
flea bites on both of my an- 

The fleas are believed to 
have been brought in by an 
Irish Setter who stayed in the 
Benson House for a couple of 
days. Soon after his departure 
the house rapidly became In- 
fested with the fleas. Sheryl 

Widen commented, "Occas- 
sionally I found some fleas 
on my body, and once I 
found a flea in my hair." 

Maintenance was alerted 
to the problem and promptly 
requested that the house be 
exterminated. A week later 
there were still fleas, if not 
more of them. Another resi- 
dent, Dene Bakken spoke up, 
"I am very susceptible to 
bug bites of any -kind. I was 
bitten mostly on my ankles, 
except for the time I slept 
in tlie livingroom and got 
bit all over my neck." 

The exterminators came a 
second time to do a more 
thorough job. The house 
vacated for three hours \ 
the windows shut, beds ex 
posed, and all oxygen-breath 
ing pets outside. 

Committee. Developed for the first time as a 
major part of the ASCLC, this committee 
makes proposals on behalf of the students' 
taste-buds and stomachs. 

Increased student representation has also * 
strengthened the student-faculty rapport in 
many ways. One example of successful com- 
munication between students and administra- 
tion was evident in the financial forum held by 

Brown and Buchanan. Major college events 
such as the national championship and "Renew 
the Lu" have brought students, faculty, a d 
ministration, and staff together in work : "- 
towards a common goal. 


My office has also supported many areas 
surrounding the ASCLC. Initiating a subsidy 
for student tickets in the National Play-offs 
illustrates how the ASCLC has backed the 
athletic department. I observed not only the 
support of the college community, but also 
the hard work put in by the team in bringing 
yet more recognition to the Lu. 

ASCLC support of world issues was also 
initiated by support of the New Earth and 
their stand on the Nestle's boycott. Participa- 
tion with the Women's Center and their forum 
on the ERA also increased the unity of the 
ASCLC with the diversity of students on 
campus. One of the greatest steps taken to 
give support to all campus organizations came 
through the revision of the SUB policy. 
Whereas last year certain students and groups 
were refused permission to use the lounge for 
an ad-college event, such as a stagehand con- 
cert, the SUB is now openlo all organizations 
through a policy change by the Executive 
Cabinet. The entire spectrum of CLC students 
have benefited from the great representation 
displayed by the five commissions which com- 
prise the Executive Cabinet. 


The Park, SUB renovation, and other capi- 
tal expenditures are progressing well and will 
continue to grow towards completion in the 
Spring. These projects will hopefully fulfill 
our goal to leave a lasting mark upon the 
college which may be utilized by present 
students and students to come. 

Thanks to tlm v/fyrk oT aH-ffrecuhv t off; 
cers, the office has greatly improved its effici- 
ency which, together with the Senate, will 
continue to accomplish these and other goals 
set for the Spring. 

In closing, I would like to commend every- 
one who participated and made the first 
annual "RENEW THE LU" day a success. I 
would also like to wish everyone a joyous 
Christmas and a very relaxing vacation. 

What is 
the Barn's 

(continued from page 1) 
storage. However, should city 
regulations force its moving, 
Murley feels that "It could 
still serve academic pur- 
pose:," which include" class- 
rooms, labs, and faculty 
offices." Top on the priority 
list of these "academic pur- 
poses" to Murley is class- 
To this Kinzer replies that, 
"If the Barn is going to be 
used for faculty, then it can 
just as well be used by the 
students." Because there is a 
chance that the Barn may be 
used for storage, Kinzer has 
suggested that the Barn start 
being moved into the S.U.B. 
"I am not out to lose the 
Barn for the students," he 
commented, "but I want to be 
prepared if the Barn should 
be closed." When he talks 
about moving the Barn into 
the S.U.3., Kinzer means'the 
moving of services, such as 
. food service, into the SUB |f 
the Barn and the SUB should 
become one, the room would 
be partitioned, setting th e 
two areas apart. 

The final decision of th e 
Barn will not be made until 
"Dean Buchanan returns to 
CLC, says Kragthorp e 

"that the students need t u '

That is, if any students have

est. "Thev will be treated as 
paid employees but their pay 
will be the college credits," 
added Garofalo. 

"The anxiety of living in 
the city is understandable," 
commented Garofalo, "One 
becomes skillful fairly quickly 
at handling urban conditions, 
if you use common sense." 
He thought that anxiety may 
be stronger now due to the 
publicity of the "strangler" 
in Los Angeles. 

An urban semester is valu- 
able according to CLC's new 
faculty member, "It is a value 
from a career standpoint and 
the experience of city living. 
The students will return to 
the classroom more sophisti- 
cated and they will have a 
clearer sense of direction." 
The faculty and student body 
benefit as well, according to 
Garofalo. "they will be livelier 
and provide leadership and 
direction to the college." 

One of the students par- 
ticipating in the program is 
Mike Shafer, a s ophomore. 
"I'm getting tired of struc- 
, tured classes," remarked 
Shafer whose interest in child 
psychology helped him to 
decide on taking the program.

Lucia Bride crowned; choirs sing out 

By Kathy Hitchcox 

To many people the 
'sounds of Christmas" are 
restricted to familiar carols 
jingle bells, or Santa's "ho', 
ho, ho." However, Thursday 
December 8 at 7 pm in the 
gym, CLC students added a 
few unique notes of their 
own during the dorm caroling 
contest, Lucia Bride cere- 

mony, and pilgrimage to 
Mountclef in Christmas Cele- 
bration '77. 

Students began the even- 
ing with rousing cheers for 
Westend, Thompson, Peder- 
son, Mountclef, Kramer and 
the Houses, and McAfee 
dorms, hoping the first place 
trophy for caroling would be 
theirs. After the

and musicianship. At the end 
of the evening, Thompson

Westend- runnerup, and 
Pederson was awarded most 

Some of the evening's 
choral highlights were/'Silent 
Night," by the Clef carolers, 
"The Twelve Days of 
Christmas," by commuters 
and faculty, "God Rest Ye 
Merry Gentlemen (in lieu of 
ERA) by McAfee, "Carol of 
Ihe Bells" by Kramer, and 
"What Child is This?" by 
Thompson. Original pieces 
included "I'm Dreaming of a 
Learning Resource Center," 
by Westend, "The Twelve 
Days After Christmas," by 
Thompson, and a twist to 
"Chestnuts Roasting on an 
Open Fire," by Pederson. 

Following the carolers, 
was the Lucia Bride cere- 
mony. Mary Stein, assistant 
to the college pastor, read 
the legend of Saint Lucia and 
how each year CLC chooses 
five girls who exemplify this 
Saint's Christian love and 
service. Dressed in white robes 
and carrying a candle, fresh- 
man Patty Gabrielson, sopho- 
more Sara Christenson, junior 
Djane Bannerman, and senior 
Marviejaynes approached the 
stage as this year's princesses. 
Senior Nanc, Schuttereceived

Hagen's life takes many directions 

By Kathy Hitchcox 

Oceans, robin eggs, the 
twinkle in as Swede's eyes, 
and ASCLC vice president 
Dave Hagen share one impor- 
tant thing in common. Each, 
in their own special way are 
very, very blue. For Hagen 





vivid, yet kickback style 
which colors his life and 
unites his dreams with the 
big, expansive, blue sky that 
forever continues in an even, 
equal course. 

The vivid coloring in 
Hagen's life is seen in the 
activity which surrounds him. 
From his earliest memories 
of playing a rousing game of 
hide and seek to his present 
role of vice president, he has 
kept very busy. In high 
school, Hagen participated in 
student government and foot- 
ball, which developed his 
confidence and ability to 
deal easily with people. "High 
school was the base for what 
I've done here," he reflected. 

Since high school pro- 
vided Hagen with a basic 
understanding of the differ- 
ent academic fields, he deci- 
ded to pursue a creer in poli- 
tics and go to law school. 
Although, Hagen was moti- 
vated to attend CLC primarily 
for the football program, he 
has since been influenced by 
many professors. Political 
science professors Tseng and 
Steepee have shaped his 
thinking in many ways. "I 
don't agree with all of Stee- 
pee's philosophies," Hagen 
admitted, "but his cynical 

questioning is very benefi- 
cial." He further added that 
coaches Shoup and Kemp 
have taught him a lot about 
winners. "A winner is a per- 
son who puts out a genuine, 
positive, successful type 
image," issustrated Hagen, 
"someone who seems at ease 
and confident with himself." 

During the past four years, 
Hagen has participated in 
football, an interim class 
which provided experience in 
the Ventura County DA's 
office, the academics services 
committee, and, presently, 
student government. He de- 
termined that students at 
different colleges have differ- 
ent roles. However, Hagen 
pointed out all students 
should, "Learn as much as 
they can, including interac- 


and competitive sports share 
an important place in his 
busv schedule. 

"People are very creative 
and have the ability to adapt," 
said Hagen, "The world is no 
better or worse than it ever 




3t that decides what you're 
•going to get out of things." 
Hagen believes strongly in 
^strength through diversity. 

"Life is a carnival and there 
are so many different rides," 
he reflected, "Time is the 
enemy." Hagen added that 
through the college experi- 
ence one should do as many 
new things as possible. He 
cited his experience teaching 
PE at an elementary school, 
teaching a discussion group, 
and wrestling as worthwhile 
new activities he's en- 

"If everyone would accept 
this present, I would give the 
world the realization we're 
living here together and it 
can work," recalled Hagen 
as he considered the future. 
Until those countless tomor- 
rows bring his goals into 
reality, he suggests, "Don't 
count the days, but make 
every day count."

turn about how 
may be lit with love, joy, 
peace, and gentleness. Ms. 
Schutte ended thecelebration 
with a short speech reminding 
everyone that above all else, 
"Christmas is a gift of God." 
Next, students formed a 
processional up Mountclef to 
what is now the Preschool. 
Upon arriving there, everyone 
shared in the reading of the 
nativity by the drama depart- 
ment and a message from Dr. 
Tonsing. A brass choir 
directed by Elmer Ramsey 
also performed a medley of 

Christmas music.

Through his first two years

watched what was going on,

Behind the scenes 

Bryant sets the stage 

By Joel Gibson 

Many administrators work 
behind the scenes and Dennis 
Bryant, CLC's perpetual mo- 
tion machine, is noexception. 
As Events Coordinator, Bry- 
ant is in charge of the techni- 
cal crew, the set-up crew, and 
the box office/usher crew. 

When Bryant first came to 
CLC in August of 1974, after 
having earned his B.A. in 
History and his Bachelor in 
Business Administration 

from Pacific Lutheran Uni- 
versity, he was put in charge 
of the technical crew and 
set-up crew for small events 
such as films and dances. 
In 1975, he became the head 
of the technical crew, set-up 
crew, and the box office/ 
usher crew for all events. As 
Bryant puts it, "The title 
has remained the same but 
the responsibility has grown. 

Dennis Bryant has his 
hand in almost every event 
that is put on here at CLC. 
So far this school year, there 
have been approximately 135 
events that Bryant has been 
involved in. However, this 
figure does not include events 

"The title has remain- 
ed the same but the re- 
sponsibility has grown. " 

that are performed more 
than once-Bryant considers 
two concerts over one week- 
end or three drama produc- 
tions as one event. 

"I enjoy the type of job 
that it is," says Bryant. 
However, "Sometimes the 
hours get a bit excessive," he 
added. Presently, Bryant puts 

in an average of sixty to 
seventy hours a week. Two 
years ago, when the cham- 
pionship football game and 
the Christmas activities 
occured during the same 
week, he worked 110 hours. 

As director of the techni- 
cal crew, Bryant has to or- 
ganize lighting, sound, and 

"My long-range goal is 
to get a degree in hotel 

management. . . " 

spotlights tor all events. 

At the present time, head 
residents Bill Simmons and 
Mike Bartosch assist Bryant 
in supervising these crews 
while Bryant oversees the 
general administration of the 

During the summer, he is 
also the Associate Director of 
Summer Programs. CLC is 

mer: not only does the school 
play host to the Dallas Cow- 
boys, but also to the Sports 
World tennis and basketball 
camps, the John Wooden 
basketball camps, and small 
church conferences. 

"The Cowboys basically 
have the new dorms," says 
Bryant, "and the basketball 
camps have Pederson and 
Thompson." Bryant's job 
during the summer is to 
"make sure all their needs 
are met". This includes or- 
ganizing their housing, work- 
ing out meal schedules with 
Lil Lopex (Director of the 
Cafeteria), technical set-up 
requirements, transportation 
requirements, and working 
with Walt Miller (Director of 
Facilities), to insure that 
other details are worked out. 

Put Love under the 
tree this year 

By Brenda Peters 

For the past few years, 
Christmas decorations and 
presents go on the market 
earlier. The malls arid plazas 
displayed their red and green 
holly arrangements one week 
after Thanksgiving. Com- 
mercials on television are 
loaded with game and toy 
advertisements, expensive 
perfumes - tons of luxeries 
to buy loved ones which they 
probably will never even use. 
The crowds, the noise, the 
shoving, the gas fumes. When 
the stores lock their doors at 
10:00 p.m., the spirit of 
Christmas blows down the 
empty streets along with dis- 
carded rubbish. 

Between the cramming 

for finals, finishing up term 
papers, and typing until 3:00 
a.m., is shopping for presents. 
Every year buying gifts for 
family and friends produces 
problems. This year, to solve 
me prooiem, why not buy 
everyone the same gift? When 
you go to buy it, you will 
discover that it won't be 
found, in any size or shape. 
It can't be put into a box and 

wrapped in holiday paper ... 
but the sunset over a peaceful 
ocean can bring it to mind .... 
as well as a playful puppy 
or the sight of a child trying 
to catch a butterfly. It can 
only be given. And so this 
Christmas, why don't you 
give the gift of LOVE? 

CLC's Events Coordinator, Dennis Bryant.

"Basically, what you're run- 
ning during the summer is 
a hotel, especially for Dallas," 
he said. 

Would he like to see any 
changes made here at CLC? 
"We do need a bigger techni- 
cal storage area. Also it would 
help if we had another 
major building to hold events 

Currently, timewise, he 
spends "about 20% in an 
administrative capacity, 

about 50% in supervision, 
and the remaining 30% j n 
college relations and on-duty 
time of events." He added 
that "It would be much 
easier if there were two 
people," working in his 
position. "If the other person 
had a technical background, 
then the events would flow 
more smoothly." 

'Orion' lacks presence 

Emphatically , he says that, 
"It would be a help to myself, 
Don Hossler (Director of Stu- 
dent Activities), Lil Lopez 
(Director of the Cafeteria), 
Walt Miller (Director of Fa- 
cilities) and our crews if all 
events could be scheduled 
two weeks in advance and all 
requirements approved with- 
in a week of the event." 

Although Bryant enjoys 
his work here at CLC, he 
would eventually like to 
move on. "My long-range 
goal is to get a degree in 
hotel management, get a job 
in a major chain, and work 
on the convention end." Why 
hotel management? "It's 
basically the same type of 
work I'm doing here ... a 
type of work I enjoy. The 
possibilities in that type of 
work are virtually unlimited." 

By Robyn Saleen 

The four member band, 
"Orion", attempted to revi- 
talize exhausted students 
after their morning of renew- 
ing the Lu last Saturday. 
Keeping in usual concert 
style, the band came on stage 
at Westend one hour late -- 
but their excuse was car 
trouble near Camarillo, and 
not arrogance. 

The highlight of the band 
was the lead guitarist. He was 
impressively versatile and 
capable of the better rock 
styles. However, the drum- 
mer, bass player, and key- 
board players either were not 
of the same caliber as their 
guitarist or they did not have 
proper staging to express 
their talents and compliment 
the lead euitar. Despite their 
commendably large repetoire 

which included selections 
from Queen; Emerson, Lake 
and Palmer; and Yes (prob- 
ably their best song was "All 
Good People"), Orion lacked 
depth as stimulating musi- 
cians and did not convey the 
driving energy needed for a 

A concert is a perform- 
ance. Orion's lack of stage 
presence and involvement 
with their music leaves them 
better suited to perform as a 
dance band. They display a 
consistent, even beat and this 
is primarily what is needed 
for a dance. If Orion does 
indeed play for a CLC dance 
in the spring, as is tentatively 
planned, it may promise to 
be an evening of good, but 
mainly danceable music. It 
all depends on whether you 
like to listen or dance. 

'Play Strindberg' in the round tonight 

For its final production ol 
i he fall semester, the Drama 
Department at California 
Lutheran College will present 
"Play Strindberg" by Freid- 
rich Durrenmatt on Decem- 
ber 15 through 17 (Thursday 
through Saturday) at 8:15 

The play will be staged 
as an experimental theater in 
the round in the Little The- 
ater according to Dr. Richard 
Adams, Director. 

"The play consists of 1 1 
rounds and a farewell," Dr. 
Adams said, "and only three 
characters are involved. It's 
the story of a marriage locked 
in hate that becomes extraor- 
ecently toured Lompoc Federal dinarily funny." 

/ Tom 

Durrenmatt offers his 
own personal and amusing 

The story revolves around 
the wife, an actress of limited 
talent, played by Vicki 
Blume, CLC graduate and 
now a fifth year student, her 
husband, Edgar, an officer 
and gentleman portrayed by 
Mahlon Hetland, San Diego 
freshman, and the wife's 
cousin, Kurt, with Mark 
Ernsberger, Westlake sopho- 
more taking the part. 

Strindberg viewed their 
struggle for survival as a 
tragedy while Durrenmatt 

sees all three of (hem as prize 
fighters entering the ring 
sparring for survival 

As one critic noted, "This 
is the most interesting play I 
have ever seen from Durren-

Students go to prison! 

By Gordon Lemke 

On Thursday, December 1 , 
seven CLC students found 
themselves in Lompoc Fed- 
eral Correctional Institution 
(FCIJ, along with one very 
innocent professor. After 
passing through the double 
chain link fence, students 
found themselves in a com- 
pound of cold concrete 
among men with idle time on 
their hands, men such as Bob 
Haldeman. The only differ- 
ence was the CLC students 
got inside Lompoc FCI legal- 
ly; the others didn't. 

It was all part of Dr. Stee- 
pee's American Government 
class, with a few curious join- 
ers. After a delicious cafeteria 
sack lunch, (Thank you cafe' 
staff, it really was good) in 
the boring town of Lompoc, 
it was off to the FCI. 


Once inside, students 
were given a tour by an in- 
mate named Charles. I don't 

want to bust your bubble, 
but prisons are not quite the 
way you think they are. Yes, 
inmates do sleep in the barred 
4 by 8 foot cells, but they 
have entire use of the com- 
pounds during their waking 

During the tour Charles 
showed students the cell 
blocks, cafeteria, and machine 
and print shops where in- 
mates work for low wages. 
Lompoc prisoners make all 
the cables required in govern- 
ment missies. The retail value 
of these amounts to about 
$400,000 per month, and 
the prisonors are paid on a 
scale as to how much they 
produce. The machine shop 
was broken down into smal- 
ler, more specific shops such 
as refrigeration, small engine 
repair, plumbing, etc. 

While some inmates do 
learn new trades, most knew 
the skills before they entered 
prison. There is little chance 
to practice these skills after 
leaving prison as there is 
about two percent placement. 

Later on in the tour, 
students saw the education 
department, gymnasium, and 
special wards dealing with 
drug and alcohol addiction. 
During this entire time stu- 
dents were free to talk to 
prisoners, or as the girls 
found out, have prisoners 

talk to them. Many men had 
not seen young ladies in 
many months and hollared 
and whistled at our girls. Yes, 
CLC causes a commotion 
wherever it goes! 


At the end of the tour, 
and after viewing what the 
prison administration wanted 
the students to see, we had a 
question and answer session 
with several prisoners. Stu 
dents took advantage of this 
session by asking questions 
dealing with such subjects as 
racial tensions in the prison 
the Mexican Mafia, homo' 
sexual gang rape, compari- 
sons with other prisons and 
so on. 

The prisoners generally 
rated the Federal Prison Sys- 
tem as much higher that the 
State Prison System. Most of 
the above problems were in 
the State system and not the 
Federal. After four hours 
much longer than a normal 
tour, students left with the 
old cliche, "It was a nice 
place to visit, but I wouldn't 
want to live there.

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

Picture this if you will- | 
finish my last final Thursday 
afternoon, dash back to my 
room, throw my luggage into 
the car and race to the Los 
Angeles airport - along with 
2 million other people also 
hoping to catch a flight to 
spend the Christmas holidays 
with family. 

I arrive in Denver Airport 
late Thursday night and arrive 
home in Fort Collins a few 
hours after that, barely in 
time for Christmas Eve. I grew 
up in a family where Christ- 
mas is observed as a special 
time to prepare and get ready 
for the celebration of Christ's 
birth. I find it VERY frustra- 
ting as I am locked in my 
dorm room - typing final 
papers and cramming for 
final exams. 

I am extremely disap- 
pointed at the people in 
charge of setting up the 
school calender. I think it is 
very inconsiderate to stu- 
dents, professors and our 
families, that we must spend 
the final days before this 
joyous time {or at least it 
used to be!) in a classroom, 
or grading papers. 

California Lutheran Col- 
lege implies by its very name 
that it is associated with a 
strong tradition, basic to the 
appreciation of Lutheran 

The Fall semester schedule 
has infringed on our rights 
to spend this time in prepar- 
ing our homes and our hearts 
for this advent season. 

I have noted that our sister 
private, Lutheran institutions 
are ending their finals by 
December 16th, to allow 
time to unwind and return to 
their homes. I questioned the 
reason for ending so iate and 
I was told that we need to 
have enough school days in a 
year, which I understand, 
however, is it really necessary 
to put these extra days in 

Not only is it hard to miss 
out on the "getting ready" - 
it is also a very dangerous 
time to be on the road, and 
many of us must spend extra 
money to fly instead of driv- 
ing because we'd like to ar- 
rive before Christmas is over. 
There is also the fear of mis- 
sing a flight due to heavy 
traffic or wondering if the 
weather conditions will allow 

a flight to land. 


change it now, but I felt a 
need to express my frustra- 
tion and disappointment in 
the way things were set up 
with our final schedule, I can 
only hope that,, next year's 
schedule will allow us at least 
a few days to be with family

Dear Editor, 

We would like to take this 
opportunity to sincerely 
thank each and every one of 
you who participated in 
CLC's first annual "RENEW 
THE LU'"77. 

Your strong support of 
"RENEW THE LU" was far 
beyond our greatest expecta- 
tions and we are both proud 
and appreciative of the inter- 
est and concern for CLC that 
was displayed on Saturday, 
December 10. We hope you 
enjoyed the day and hope 
that you are looking forward 
to our Spring Event, which 
is now in the planning stages.

"Renewed Lu," I would 
hope we would keep it that

same high standards of

For the past three years 
faculty, students, and staff 
have remembered each other 
at Christmas with a Com- 
munity Christmas Card. Your 
signature on that card repre- 
sents those dollars you might 
have spent on individual 
cards but chose, rather, to 
benefit those in need in Ap- 

An open letter to the 
CLC Community: 

My family, my 
brother's fiance, and 
I would sincerely like 
lo thank the CLC 
community for re- 
sponding to us in our 
time of need. The 
love, concern, and 
bond through Christ 
reached across the 
miles and touched us 
all. With each passing 
day it seems easier to 
be reassured that 
David is now united 
with God and no long- 

er can feel physical 
pain. He was a beau- 
tiful person with a 
strong will to live but 
God in his wisdom 
chose tO complete his 
life early. We feel 
blessed with the years 
we have had with 
David and are thank- 
ful his death came 
quickly and without 
a great deal of pain. 

I would like to al- 
so thank those who 
donated to the kid- 
ney Foundation. Da- 
vid with his unusual 
illness taught the 

doctors so much and 
now with the added 
financial backing, it is 
our hope that re- 
search will soon lead- 
to cures. 

Please continue to' 
remember us in your' 
prayers because il 
seems difficult to

Dam's Collapse Was Avoidable 
Negligence May Cause Others 

last month, a dam col- 
lapsed at Toccoa Falls, 
Ga., and brought death to 
39 persons, 20 of them 
Children. It was a tragedy 
that could have been pre- 

Five years ago. Con- 
gress passed a National 
Dam Safety Act. The legis- 
lators thought it would pre- 
vent disasters, which have 
brought tragedy and dev- 
astation to this country 
ever since the Johnstown 
flood. Yet a congressional 
subcommittee has found 
that dam safety is no bet- 
ter now than before the law 
went on the books. 

We have spoken with 
sources who have read the 
shocking findings. When 
the report becomes public 
later this year, here is 
what it will say: 

It will point an accusing 
finger at the Army Engi- 
neers. According to the 
report, the Engineers 
haven't been inspecting 
dams; they've spent five 
years counting them 
instead. For what good it 
did the victims at Toccoa, 
the Army Engineers 
counted 50,000 dams in the 
United States. Nearly half 
of these would trigger a 
havoc of death and de- 
struction should they col- 

The federal law was 
passed partially because 
state inspection had been 
so ineffective in the past. It 
still is. In fact, most of the 


dams in this country have , 
never been checked by ei- I 
ther federal or state 

Arab Brawl: Over the 
years, the Central Intelli- 
gence Agency has picked 
up secret conversations of 
Arab leaders. We have had 
access occasionally to the 

most sizzling re- 
marks are those they make 
behind each others' backs. 
The three who have always 
had the least use for one 
another are Egypt's 
Anwar Sadat, Syria's Hafiz 
Assad and Libya's Muam- 
mar Qaddafi. 

They have tried to stand 
together against Israel. 
They have even tried to 
unite under a common 
flag. But they have never 
liked nor trusted one 

Their secret conversa- 
tions show that Assad 
holds Sadat in downright 
contempt. Even when they 
were supposed to be close 
allies, he was quoted in one 
intelligence report as say- 
ing, "I would not expect too 
much from the Egyp- 

They have now broken 
up over Sadat's peace trip 
to Israel. Apparently, As- 
sad had anticipated some- 
thing like this for a long 
time. For he is quoted by 
the CIA as saying he ex- 
pected Egypt to leave 
Syria "in a lurch.' 

The enmity between Sa- 
dat and Qaddafi. however. 

is even more bitter. Qad- 
dafi has called Sadat a 
traitor to the Arab cause. 
Sadat, in turn, has called 
Qaddafi "a madman." 

It is one of the ironies of 
our time that the greatest 
threat to peace in the Mid- 
dle East is not an outbreak 
of fighting between the Is- 
raelis and Egyptians. 
There is more likely to be 
fighting, according to our 
intelligence -sources, be- 
tween the Egyptians and 
the Libyans. 

Fresh Face: Jimmy 
Carter campaigned on the 
need for a fresh face in the 
White House. Now that he 
is in the Oval Office, he 
uses the talents of a 
cosmetic expert named 
Lillian Brown to keep his 
face looking fresh. She 
does his make-up for tele- 
vision appearances. 

The White House consid- 
ers Brown to be an artist 
with her make-up kits. She 
is on call whenever the 
president needs her skills. 
The White House pays her 
around $2,000 a year to 
make the president look 
his best for the television 

The president's make- 
up, by the way. consists 
mainly of pancake, to keep 
his face from shining un- 
der the lights. He also uses 
rouge to give his cheeks a 
healthy red color. 

Muslard Man: Sen. Barry 
Goldwater. R-Ariz., has a 
new sideline. He is ped- 
dling mustard. 

Some time ago, it seems, 
Goldwater's youngest 
daughter. Peggy Holt, 
found a recipe for mustard 
in her grandmother's cook- 
book. She tried it, and the 
result was delicious. She 
decided to market it under 
the name Peggy Jane's 
Special Mustard Sauce. It 
sold well on the West 
Coast, where she lives. 

So Sen. Goldwater sent a 
sample to Benjamin 
Wagshal, owner of the fin- 
est delicatessen in Wash- 
ington. Wagshal gave it a 
taste and pronounced the 
mustard "excellent." It is 
now on his shelf. At a price 
of $2.50 per nine-ounce jar, 
Wagshal told us, the Gold- 
water mustard is "selling 

Plugging Leaks: Another 
government agency j s 
cracking down on leaks to 
the press. The poobahs at 
the Federal Trade Com- 
mission have told their em- 
ployees to button their lips. 
In two recent staff bul- 
letins, Executive Director 
Margery Waxman Smith 
criticized staff members 
for making inappropriate 
comments to news people 
about pending cases. 

One memo sternly said 
the news media has been 


Bti ( 

about investigations that 
hadn't yet been publicly 
announced. It noted grimly 
that "every employee j s 
subject to criminal prose- 
cution for unlawful divulg- 
ing of information." 

Trustbust Flop: Fifty 
years ago, before the fed- 
eral trust busters started 
cracking down on big busi- 
ness, 200 American corpo- 
rations owned 45 percent of 
all manufacturing assets 
in the United States. 
Today, the top 200 corpora- 
tions own 60 percent of all 
the manufacturing assets. 

In short, the trustbusters 
aren't busting trusts fast 
enough to keep up. I-ast 
year alone, more than 2,200 
small businesses were 
swallowed up by large cor- 

Sen. Gaylord Nelson, D- 
Wis., has complained 
about the trend in a private 
letter to the Comptroller 
General. Either the laws 
are ineffectively written, 
says Nelson, or they are 
ineffectively enforced. 

China Connection: For a 
while after relations went 
sour between Egypt anil 
Russia, Egyptian military 
officers were worried 
about how they were going 
to get spare parts for their 
Soviet-built equipment. In-

Walking about campus we can all see what the efforts of so , 
many went for on this past Saturday that was designated as ; 
"Renew the Lu" day. The bridge in the park took on new life 
as it received a reviving coat of paint. Walking from area to 
area one witnessed the various projects as they developed. A 
new sidewalk between Mt. Clef dorm and the cafeteria that 
was sorely needed. Dorms receiving new coats of paint that 
refreshed the buildings and gave the campus a sparkle. A park, 
soon to be finished but not delayed because of lack of enthusi- 
asm. The only thing that delayed the willing workers was some 
missing piping. All of the projects added something, when 
blended with the overall efforts of the day, seemed to bring a . 
new face to the community. 

As one of hte participants I can still bring back the feelings 
as I worked. I remember a flood of pride as I watched the 
masses leave breakfast with determination to do something 
with the day. When we got to our dorm and met to make 
assignments, a swarm of willing workers gathered around. 
Then we started. We painted and scraped, swept and raked, 
sweated and swore. Slowly, very slowly things began to lake 
on a new look. Yet there were no complaints. Everyone 
worked with a smile and seemed to have a good time. The 
music roared and finally everything finished. People got cleaned 
up, went and ate a good meal (it must have been, everything 
was gone by the time 1 got there), and then spent the rest of 
the day listening to a concert. All in all it was one of the most 
productive and enjoyable events I remember in my four years 
here. We of the ECHO offer our congratulations to all who had 
a hand in making this day the success that it was and look for- 
ward to more in the future. 

It's been several weeks now but memories of the playoff 
game against Westminster still linger. But then, many of the 
memories are not just of the game. We of the ECHO would 
like to extend our congratulations to the entire college for 
the way the day went. To the students for their enthusiasm 
and dedication in cheering, sign making, and conduct becoming 
of true champions. To the administration for the way the game 
was run. Everything went smoothly despite all of the things 
that could have easily gone wrong. To Westminster and their 
fans who played with a lot of class and were ideal visitors. 

Finally of course, we would like to coneratulate thp f«"«* 
and its coaches. They played their hearts out and were excellent 
representatives of California Lutheran College. The word lose 
never entered their minds, even after the final gun went off 
with the visitors ahead 17-9. Because of this attitude they did 
not leave the field as losers and the pride in the team could lu- 
felt as one walked through the mingling bodies straying across 
the field after the game. It was a year of success by .ill mea- 
sures and they provided the Lu with some exciting moments. 
Congratulations never seems enough. Thank you.

Kingsmen bury 

Claremont, then 
top Pomona-Pitzer 

By Brad Reed 

The California Lutheran College basketball team coaches 
are stressing defensive pressure this year and results are begin- 
ning to show. Other teams are shooting and scoring well below 
their averages against the Kingsmen, 

Last weekend CLC upped its season record to 6-2 by de- 
feating Claremont (67-45) and Pomona Pitzer (74-59). 

Friday's game saw four players score in double figures led 
by Dave 3lessing with 14, followed by Steve Carmi'chael 
with 11 and Mike Eubanksand Brian Campbell with 10 apiece. 
Sophomore guard Henry Smith played a fine floor game chip- 
ping in 8 points, grabbing S rebounds and handing out 6 assists. 

Claremont threw up 73 shots in the game but, thanks to 
the Kingsmen 's defense, many were forced and they hit only

night and will go against CSUN in one of their tougher 
matchups of this young season. Cat Lutheran will be carry-

21 for 27 percent while the Lu hit on 51 percent of their 

Saturday nights game was a rematch of the season opener 
in San Diego, (won by CLC 94-73) but Pomona was not to 
attain any revenge. 

CLC, perhaps overconfident, played somewhat lackadaisi- 
cally but led by 7 at the half 35-28. Blessing took over in the 
second half and led the way to the 15 point final margin by 
tossing in a total of 27. Eubands added 13 points and con- 
trolled the boards pulling down 12 rebounds. 

Winless Pomona shot a mere 34 percent from the floor and 
only 58 percent ( 1 9 of 33) from the line. The Kingsmen shot 
45 percent (30 of 67) of their field goals and added 14 of 20 
charity tosses for 70 percent. 

The team has been working hard this week in preparation 
for a stron Northridge team who they face tonight in North- 
ridge at 8:00. CSUN is led by 6-4 guard Terry Miller who 
surprisingly transferred from Idaho State where he was a three 
year starter and MVP in 76-77. They also boast of 6-4 forward 
Steve Singleton who was their leading scorer last year. This 
will be the last game for the Kingsmen before their trip to 
Oregon for a tournament after Christmas.

CLC Wrestlers take second at Whittier 

Paul Brown named tournament's Most Valuable Wrestl 

CLC's highly touted 
heavyweight, Paul Brown, 
made his first appearance in a 
Kingsmen uniform Saturday 
at the Whittier Dual Meet 
Tournament. Brown missed 
CLC's first five matches of 
the season due to leg surgery 
but quickly showed why he 
is so highly regarded by Cal 
Lutheran Head Coach Buck 
Deadrich. Brown recorded 
five falls in five bouts and 
was voted the Tournament's 
Outstanding Wrestler for his 
efforts. Kingsmen team cap- 
tain Matt Peterson (126 lbs.) 
won the gold medal in his 
weight as did Klackamas 
(Oregon) Junior College trans- 
fer Paul Schwehn (118 lbs.). 
Schwehn continues to lead 
the Kingsmen grapplers sta- 
tistically with a perfect 11-0 
record. Peterson is currently 
8-2-1 for the season. 

In Saturday'scompetition, 
CLC faced and defeated La 
Verne College 55-0, Cal Poly 
Pomona 29-13, Whittier Col- 
lege 33-18 and Cal State Uni- 
versity Los Angeles 51-5. 
Biola dropped the Kingsmen 
for the second time this 
season 36-11. 

"Biola definately won the 
match," commented CLC 
assistant coach George Eck- 
men, "but the score doesn't 
reflect the fact that all of 
the breaks went their way." 
Both Eckman and Deadrich 
believe they can beat Biola 
by the end of the season. 

"If the breaks they got had 
gone our way," said Deadrich, 
"Biola still would have been 
Jhe victor 21-33. We need 
Tom Perez down to weight 
at 134 lbs. (Perez missed 
the weight Saturday by a 
pound and a half then wrest- 
led up two weights and won 
for CLC.) and he has to win.

The coaches believe CLC 
has better talent than 3iola 
in the upper-weights but due 
to the extended football 

season and the rash of injuries. 
Cal Lutheran hasn't been 
able to fully mobilize that 
talent. "By the end of the 
season Bowers, Jackson and 
Weber could all be good 
enough to place for us nation- 
ally," said Eckman. Deadrich 
agrees and adds, "In January,

eligible and that will help

awesome for a small college 
and this year's schedule is the 
toughest yet. CLC scheduled 
Biola on four separate occa- 
sions. (Biola is the only small 
college team in California 
that CLC has not beaten.) 
The rest of the schedule 
features state universities 
rather than small colleges. "I 
suppose it would be nice to 
have a perfect season and we 
are at the stage where we 
could do that as long as I 
watched my scheduling," 
said Deadrich, "but we've got 
to keep seeking tougher

The results of the 1977 
volleyball season are in, show- 
ing CLC splitting the fourth 
place spot with Ambassador 
College. Loyola University 
came in first in the Califor- 
nia Collegiate Athletic Con- 
ference (CCAC), by suffering 
no losses during the season. 
Holding second place is Azuza 
'Pacific, followed by Chap- 
man College in third place. 
The last two teams holding 
the fifth and sixth places 
respectively, are Westmont 
College and California 

The Regals had a "slow 
start" at the beginning of the 
year, but soon "sped-up" and 
had a strong finish. "The fact 
that we finished this year so 
strong," comments Nancy 
Trego, the women's coach, 
"will give us a stronger start- 
ing point for next year." 

There will only be two 
women graduating from this 
years team. If the same team 
members return next year, 
the Regals have a very good 
chance of "starting strong" 
and going onto an even better 
season than this years.

ASCLC committee bites into cafeteria problems 

By Carol Solverson 

Meeting every other Wednesday at 2:00 pm, the ASCLC 
Food Committee, composed of eight members appointed by 
ASCLC President Craig Kinzer and chairman Louie Soteriou; 
Lil Lopez, Director of Food Services, and Karen Tibbitts, 
nutritionist, discuss improvements to be made in the quality of 
food and food services in the cafeteria. 

' The Food Committee, as part of the executive branch of 
ASCLC, has set the goal of trying to satisfy the students' desires 
in this area as much as possible and within reason. Other pur- 
poses of this committee are to provide students with informa- 
tion about the nutrition they receive from their meals and to 
provide special dinners. 

Chairman Soteriou stated that his committee has been mak- 
ing positive progress by taking action on suggestions that they 
have received this past semester. He emphasized that "Good rela- 
tionships between the committee members and the cafeteria 
staff have been established in the past few months and this is 
important if we are to make any progress." 

More input is needed from the students, though, so that 
this committee can execute its job more effectively. Another 
committee, appointed by Soteriou, is now in the process of 
putting together what it hopes to be a survey that can truthful- 
ly represent the students' opinions of the foods now being served 

and the service offered them, and a | So g j ve 5tU(J . 

to put down their suggestior -for s Uch lhings as * ' ance 

trees and new foods to be servea. r hls k 

used to clarify students' opinions and d V * J V t« -be 

and give Mrs. Lopez an idea of -hose f oods ttl , n a n *££™[ 

tage of the students don t * nd d ^PPeH*ing and* would like 

to see oft the menu. New tood_s_*m have (o ^ substitmed f(jr 


those that are removed, and suggestions for such an 

by the Food Committee. According t0 $ 

should be available in the caf*ejg for filling ou, som^S 

the next few weeks, and all students are encouraged to take 

this chance to make their complaints and/or suggestions known 

Results, and hopefully progress, from this survey will be made 

known to the students later on in the semester. 

Positive progress taken by the committee has included keep- 
ing both lines in the cafe open between } ^ :45 am an d 1 :15 pm 
at lunch as suggested, and this has helped to ease the heavy 
flow of student traffic in the cate and make lines shorter dur- 
ing these times. Another improvement successfully initiated by 
the Food Committee has been the additional serving of fruit, 
both at lunch and dinner, and sometimes even at breakfast. A 
new toaster that works and two salad bars, instead of one, 
have been added, much to the pleasure of those students that 
use them. 

Improvements to look forward to in the near future include 
a wider variety of eggs being served at breakfast, such as 
scrambled eggs with ham mixed in, "and" different kinds of 
omelettes; chef's salads once a week, either at lunch or dinner 
and tostadas at night every so often, instead of always at lunch. 

Other suggestions being considered at this time are the pos- 
sibility of having fruit juices available more often; fish, such as 
seafood platter, served two or three times a week; vegetarian 
dishes served twice a week (these suggestions have been dis- 
cussed since November), and the possibility of having chicken 
or turkey out once in awhile instead of just cold cuts at the 
sandwich bar. 

The wasting of food is another area that the Food Commit- 
tee is concerned with, and they urge all students not to be so 
wasteful with their food at mealtimes. In doing so, the com- 
mittee sees that they will be able to provide more special din- 
ners and betler quality food for the students. 

The Food Committee and Mrs. Lopez welcome all sugges- 
tions, but can't guarantee that action will be taken in regards 
to every single one that they receive. They encourage anyone 
to come to the meetings and .voice their complaints and sug- 
gestions, or just talk with any one of the Food Committee 
members. They are happy to bring any ideas up at their

Variety is key to 
Scandinavian day 

More attractions including some additional funfilled activi- 
ties for the youngsters will be featured when California Lutheran 
College presents its fifth annual Scandinavian Day on Satur- 
day, March 1 1 , from 1 1 am through 6 pm. 

Among the new presentations will be "Ribbons of Memory" 
with Gerta and Ed Sundberg of Northern California who will 
show interested persons how to record the stories and experi- 
ences of members of their families and friends on tape. The 
Sundbergs have recorded interesting anecdotes from Scandina- 
vian immigrants throughout the Midwest and the West. Many 
of their tapes will be given to the University of Washington for 
their department of Scandinavian Studies. They will demon- 
strate how you, too, can search for your Scandinavian "roots". 

For visitors interested in the different costumes of the 
Scandinavian countries, Mrs. Lorraine Gravrock of the Bav 
area will give a slide presentation and will display her collection 
6F "costumes. She also has an unusual exhibit of Scandinavian 
woodcarvings to display. 

Youngsters will be entertained by an outdoor dramatiza-* 
tion of the Three Billy Goats Gruff by the covered bridge in 
Kingsmen Park. Students from the CLC Drama Department 
will enact this favorite fairy tale. There will also be an Ugly 
Troll Drawing Contest for children of all ages with prizes for 
the best art work. Treats will be given to youngsters who come 
to Scandinavian Day in costume. Troll tours of the campus 
will be conducted for visitors. 

Folk dancing will be featured around the Maypole in Kings- 
men Park and in the auditorium. More arts and crafts will also 
be demonstrated including dough art, lefse making, rosettes, 
rosemaling.rrardangcr embroidery, Swedish weaving and many 

this year for the first time commercial exhibits will be 
allowed and a variety of items including books, jewelry and 
articles for the home will be for sale by tradesmen who are 
specialists in Scandinavian ware. The Women's "League will 
sponsor a bake sale for the benefit of the CLC scholarship 
fund and for the first time Swedish limpas in abundance will 
be for sale. 

In the Barn, the Club, women's service organization, will 
serve coffee, cookies, pastries, sandwiches and fresh fruit 
throughout the day. Visitors are invited to bring their picnic 
lunches to eat in Kingsmen Park or to visit the dining hall, 
coffee shop or cafeteria for lunch. 

Scandinavian costumes will be in evidence at the Scandinavian Day 
festivities, adding to the fun and frolic. 

The day will be climaxed with the popular Smorgasbord 
banquet at 6 pm in the Dining Commons where special enter- 
tainment will be featured. I Reservations will be available at $7 
per person through the College Relations Office at 805) 492- 
2411 ext. 277. 

Brochures describing the events of the day in detail are also 
available from the College Relations Office. 

Glory looks 
forward to 

A record breaking 300 
entries of prose and poetry 
have been submitted to the 
Mornine Glory this year. The 
staff has been busy screening 
the submissions in hopes to 
produce another All Ameri- 
can award winning publica- 
tion like last year. This year's 
editor, Maia Siewertsen, is 
impressed with the quality 
of literature and adds, "There 
is much more, and much 
better literature to choose 
from this year." 

Ms. Siewertsen has been 
working with the art editor, 
Julie Malloch, and additional 
staff members Randy Inger- 
soll and Jane Lee, with the 
advisement of Dr. Jack Led- 
better and last year's editor, 
Jerry Lenander. We are 
looking forward to receiving 
the Morning Glory this spring 
and a chance to see the artistic 
and literary talents of the 
CLC community.

credits for all college, vo-

According to the CLC 
registrar, Alan Scott, "Second 
semester enrollment is en- 
couraging." As of February 
23, 1107 undergraduates 
were registered. This is an in- 
crease of 23 over last spring, 
or a two percent increase. 
There are 79 fifth-year stu- 
dents making the total enroll- 
ment 1186.Thisisan increase 
of 29 over a year ago. The 
spring enrollment is down 
from fall by about five per- 
cent. This is, however, nor- 
mal for the spring semester. 

In fall 1977, CLC had its 
largest new enroll men i of 
students with 430 freshman 
and transfer students. Appli- 
cations are now being accep- 
ted for next year, with an 
expected enrollment of 475 
new students. Fall 1978 will 
have an expected increase of 
about 10 percent in student 
population. To ease the bur- 
den on student housing the 
admissions office is hoping 
for an increase in commuter 
students from the Conejo

• Do you know someone who was taking 

''solo airplane flights ai sixteen years of age 
"before he even had a driver's license? Some- 
one who now has been Hying for the better 
part of six years and who this summer has 
planned an extensive western U.S. air tour 
in a 1942 biplane? Well, if you know Kevin 
McKenzie, a junior poly-sci/management 

■ major, you know just such a person. 

Kevin's dream has always been flying. 
Even as a five year old, he was an avid fan of 
"early Saturday morning war movies with 
pilot-heroes." Friends of the family encour- 
aged the dream of the seven and eight year 

old Kevin by letting him "take the wheel" of 
their private planes while he was up in the air 
with them. "For an eight year old kid," laughs 
Kevin, "that was a pretty big deal ! " 

Kevin's dream became reality when, at 
15, he started his formal pilot's training. On 
his sixteenth birthday, he made his first solo 
flight with his own student pilot certificate. 

Two and a half years of training were re- 
warded when Kevin qualified for his own full 
license, for which he had to pass a battery of 
written, oral, and flight tests. 

"I probably learned a lot more from my 
private pilot exam," said Kevin, "than in all 
my previous studying." This was so because 

CLC sponsors interim speech tourney

action? Competitive speech, 
The place? CLC. 

The CLC speech depart- 
ment, coached by Dr. Bever- 
ly Kelly, had its hands full 
during the Interim month 
hosting amd competing in 
collegiate and high school 

During the first week of 
the session it was th< i ireal 
Oaks Invitational. Tin. loum 



vent sponsored by the Uni- 
versity of California Los 
Angeles. Being held on the 
CLC campus during the week- 
end of January 6 Ami 7, the 
tournament was conducted 
on a small scale with only 
five colleges entering the 
competition including the 
host school, CLC. 

Biola was the overall vic- 
tor, racking up more points 
than the other four teams 
combined, with CLC finish- 
ing second.

'Cooley High' 


the mark 

By Robyn Saleen and Joel 

An abnormally small 
crowd of approximately 100 
students spent two hours of 
their Friday evening watch- 
ing "Cooley High," which 
turned out to be nothing 
more than an inferior soul 
version of "American Graf- 

The movie attempted to 
draw comedy from prostitu- 
tion, auto theft, destruction 
of a movie theater, ii.i fights, 
and awkward sex. However, 
the movie ended on a serious 
and sentimental note which 
was anticlimactic due to the 
barrage of attempted comedy 
which preceded it. 

Certainly, ghetto life and 
senseless murders arc two ser- 
ious problems in this country 
today. However, the movie's 
comic treatment of these 
problems detracted from the 
seriousness of the situation. 

the helm in the words of Dr. 
Kelly, "The tournament 
proved to be as successful as 
planned." The awards cer- 
omony was held that evening 
in Nygreen with President 
Mark Mathews adressing the 
competitors before the pre- 
sentation of awards and $100. 
00 scholarships for first place 
victors in each of the six e- 
vents offered. 

Working with Thorburn 
were members of an Interim 
class entitled Directing Com- 
petitive Speech. "Through 
their efforts," remarked Kel- 

ly, 'we were able to keep all 
events on time while provid- 
ing a meal of hamburger and 
coke for a modest fee of fif- 
ty cents." 

Since it was a large tourn- 
ament with some fifteen 
schools joining the competi- 
tion, members of the faculty 
and students of CLC provid- 
ed their services as judges for 
the events which lasted 
throughout the day. Dr. Kel- 
ly expressed gratitude for 
their assistance and said shel- 
ls looking forward to an even 
better tournament next year.

available before long. The 
conference, Sat. April 15, 
from 9:30 am to 1:30 prri 
will address the call to live 
out a vital faith and commit- 
ment within the relationships 
of the family. 

He flies like an eagle... 

the examiner covered many other experiences 
and types of planes than Kevin had had the 
opportunity to work with in his own limited 
flight experience. "There was a lot of give and 
take between the examiner and I. But," quip- 
ped Keven, "I was definitely the one in the 
hot seat!" 

He did pass the tests, though, and was 
awarded his pilot's license. Since that time, 
Kevin has been checked out to fly six differ- 
ent types of airplanes. 

One of those different airplanes is current- 
ly the focal point of Kevin's flyingexperience. 
It is the airplane he spends most of his time 
with, and in which he and the owner of the 
plane, Paul Hinckley, plan to tour this 

"Paul is a friend of my family," says Kev- 
in, "a retired U.S. Air Force test pilot who 
lives in Brentwood." Kevin and Mr. Hinckley 
have been flying in the 1942 vintage PT13 
Stearman biplane since last May when Mr. 
Hinckley bought it. "In fact," says Kevin, "I 
found the ad for it in the Classifieds!" 

The plane has two open cockpits and is 
powered by an exposed radial engine and 
single propeller, both of which are in the 
front of the plane. 

"Planes of that vintage require a lot of 
maintanence," asserts Kevin. "We'd alternate- 
ly fly it and fix it up last summer." 

This kind of plane was used extensively 
during World War II as a training plane for 
new pilots. It is for this reason that the pilot 
sits in the rear cockpit and the co-pilot in the 
front. In WWII days, the student sat in front 
with his instructor in the back. "It's evolved 
that the command pilot sits in back." In 
Mr. Hinckley's Stearman, he occupies the rear 
seat, and Kevin, as co-pilot, the front. 

"It's a totally different sense," says Kevin, 
comparing flight in the Stearman to flight in 
the little two-seater in which he learned to 
fly. "The Stearman is controlled by a stick 
rather than a wheel." 

Flying this type of rather rare airplane has 

been a unique experience for Kevin. "It's an 
awful lot of fun to fly it, and it's also terribly 
ego-building because you know you're trie 
only one at the airport with that kind of 
airplane." (This said with a twinkle in the 
eye ...} "You cruise by on the runway in your 
flight suit and helmet and wave at all the 
green young test pilots like I used to be." 

But it's not all a bed of roses, says Kevin. 
"All of the adventure and romance only lasts 
about 45 minutes, and then you notice that 
your hands and feet are terribly cold and the 
wind in your face is beginning to dry your 
sinuses out ... 

"The engine's noisier than hell, even with 
the headsets on, and sometimes communica- 
tion gets to be a problem." It seems that at 
times the engine gets so noisy that their inter- 
coms become useless and Mr. Hinckley and 
Kevin have to resort to hand signals. "It can 
get pretty funny at times, as I recall," grins 

Kevin and Paul are planning to take 6 to 8 
weeks off this summer to fly in the Stearman 
all over the western half of the U.S., and 
probably to Canada as well. They plan to 
travel at their own pace, staying in sleeping 
bags under the airplane 

The trip is a long anticipated one for both 
Kevin and Mr. Hinckley. They both see it as a 
once-in-a-life time opportunity. "It's a unique 
time in our lives because it's probably the 
only chance we'll get to take a trip like this," 
says Kevin. "He's getting older, and I'm reach- 
ing the point in my life where I'll soon be 
getting a full-time job." 

When asked about plans for that upcoming 
career choice, flying again comes into focus as 
a major thrust of Kevin's life. "I'd like to fly 
professionally for awhile, although probably 
not for the rest of my life." 

A varied range of career choices are open 
to Kevin, many of them shaped in a large part 
by his love for flying. "There are a lot of op- 
tions open to me right now," says Kevin. "I 
just have to decide."

set-ups that cannot handle rush-hour crowds. 

Variety is lacking in the day to day cafeteria menu. It has never ceased to ama*e me, for 
example, that the cafeteria staff seems to have ordained Sunday for pork consumption. Not a 
Sunday passes but that we are served either ham or bacon for breakfast, and then ham or pork 
roast tor dinner. Sandwich bars seem to be the newest fad as they are so often served for lunch 
now even during the week. I would be the first one to enjoy these sandwich bars, if only they 
were more complete and contained something besides lunch meat. Often-times the simple gar- 
nishes of cheese and tomato are omitted, and only on weedends (if we are lucky enough to 
come down early enough) do we have a chance to have tuna or egg salad. Why must this only be 
* »'»ekend "treat"' 

t told more often that I care to think that it is no use to complain about the food s> 
in charge sec nothing wrong and consequently have no desire to change. 

Many have complained that cafeteria food causes indigestion. I, for one, have to turn to my 
Alka-I I much more often than I would like. Sloppy joes (swimming in grease) and meatloaf have 
always been killers for me, not to mention meatballs and spare ribs. (It seems somewhat sad 
that one has to take two or three spare-ribs, although you're only allowed two, in order to gnaw 
off the amount of meat one might find on one spare-rib anywhere but in our cafeteria.) 

Inefficiency abounds as well, in our cafeteria. On almost any Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, 
at noon, frustrated students can be seen waiting for lunch in a single line extending back to the 
cafeteria doors while the other serving line remains unopened. There is no excuse for this, it 
seems to me, for this is a time of day when students have no time to wait in line; a time when 
many have only 15-20 minutes in which to grab a quick lunch. Inefficiency is heightened by the 
"new" salad bar set-up which causes back-ups and confusion galore for the simple chore of get- 
ting salad dressing or ketchup. Surely there must be a way to aid this situation. 

I have been told more often than 1 care to think that it is no use to complain about the food 
service, that those who are in charge see nothing wrong and consequently have no desire to 
change. I would hope this assumption was wrong, and hope as well that a service of this college 
that is so integral to the lives of ALL on-campus students would be more sensitive to the large 
majority of the student body that is dissatisfied. I would hope they would try to find out the 
causes of this dissatisfaction, and honestly make an effort to remedy a situation that seems to 
get worse every semester. 

Mount Clef dorm 
damage is decreasing 


No one claims responsibility, everyone picks 
up the bill. Dorm damage is the issue. Who is 
responsible when no one admits to guilt? Peer 
pressure prevents those who know to reveal the 
vandals. It does not seem fair to someone who 
does not abuse the facilities to charge them for 
the conduct of others. 

Figures in 1975-76 showed an expense of 
$1 ,520 for Mt. Clef dorm which came out to be 
$9.50 per student. The money is subtracted 
from the $50 room deposit. In 1976-77 the cost 
of damage in Mt. Clef was considerably lower at 
$425. The notion of charging residents for dorm 
damages was initiated in 1976-76 when it was so 
extensive that they felt it would give the students 
some much needed sense of responsibility and a 
shared sense of community. Pederson is the only 
other dorm that has been charged for overall 
damage. That was in 1976-76. 

Punching a hole in the wall makes you feel 
better, but you must realize that someone 
must pay for it. 

Mt. Clef dorm has improved over the last 
year and the year before. Every year the damage 
decreases. But the fact is that there is still damage. 

This year the damage in Mt. Clef has included 
the candy machine mangled and disassembled, 
the coke machine turned over in a fit of frustra- 
tion along with several holes in the walls. Phone 
receivers are continually being ripped out. 

It does not seem that there is much pride. 
Mt. Clef foyer is an example. How can you be 
proud of something that has newspapers and 
trash scattered everywhere that many do not 
take the time to pick up. I know that 1 have 
gone through and picked papers up and put in a 
container known as a trash can, and I am not 
even a resident of Mt. Clef. I guess it follows 

that if something looks like a dump people will

furniture in the foyer. Many chairs are ripped 
and continually disfigured, causing them to be 
irreparable. There is no budget, therefore, they 
are not replaced. 

At the end of the year the cost for repairs are 
divided up among the residents. If the total 
comes to less than one dollar per student, the 
school will cover it, if not, it is the responsibility 
of the dorm. 

Is there another way? Room and board can 
be raised to cover expenses, but who needs that? 
It could come out of dorm dues, but those are 
reserved for dorm activities. Someone has to pay, 
so it seems that those living together in a com-

The problem is that everyone is accountable for 
everyone else. You have to be responsible for 
your own actions first. Punching a hole in the

that someone must pay for it. Are you willingto. 

Do you like living in a place full of trash and 
holey walls? It's your dorms, your pride, your 
money and your choke! 


to the 

Dear Mr. Howie, Editor and 

First of all, let me state 
that the title, "The Guillotine 
is Ready to Fall" was not my 
own ; it surprised me as much 
as it did you. I am not saying 
that it's ready to fall; that is 
not the issue. That such a 
guillotine exists at all is 
alarming enough. 

And it does exist. You ad- 
mit as much in one of the 
sentences in your letter. 
Allow me to quote it. "There 
is no control whatsoever over 
any part of students publi- 
ctions by student government 
EXCEPT in monetary mat- 
ters." (emphasis my own) 
With the possible exception 
of putting a gun to the editor's 
head, 1 cannot think of a 
better way to control a news- 
paper than by controlling its 
"monetary matters". I am 
not saying that you presently 
have any editorial control 
over the paper, merely that 
the potential for such control 
is ominously present. I am 
not in favor of waiting 'til 
the last minute with these 

Later on, in the same para- 
graph, you write, "Currently, 
the allocation to student 
publications is about one half 
of the budgetable funds this 
year. To suggest that it would 
be a 'simple matter' to cross 
the ECHO out of next year's 
budget is ridiculous." You 
are right; it was a ridiculous 
statement. Knowing that 
half the money in the budget p 
goes to student publications, g 
I shouldn't have written § 
"simple matter". It should g 
have been "financially desir- § 
able and simple matter". It I 
was, I admit, a ridiculous 

When I saw the letter in 
print, the scales fell from my 
eyes. I deeply regret that they 
did not fall sooner. I should 
not have attacked Craig Kin- 
zer. Again, you are right - 
the budget for next year is 
not in his hands. My attack 
was ill-mannered and uncalled 
for. Please let me take this 
opportunity to publicly 
apologize to him. 

By the way, I never alluded 
to Kinzer as God. In fact, I 
stated that he was NOT God. 

I also agree with you on 
another point. There should 
be some student control of 
the paper's budget allowance; 
it is, after all, the students' 
money. But such control 
should not be in the hands of 
the student government (see 
my last letter}. I'm afraid I 
have no quick answers to the 
dilemma of who's to have 
said control; but I think it's 
time someone came up with

Throwing ourselves into 
history and playing make-be- 
lieve is an ingenius activity, 
full of learning, but care must 
be taken. For those who ac- 
knowledged the unforgivable 
comment, the reaction was 
immediate. They felt as 
though they had been slapped 
in the face. Like whipped 
slaves, thronged before the 
man on horseback. Obey or 
die! (Indeed, it hurts to real- 
ize these things; literally and 
psychically.) No college stu- 
dent, and hopefully nobody 
anywhere, wants to be told 
that he or she does not mat- 
ter, does not count, that they 
are nothing, worthless just as 
who and what they are. But 
do not worry, there will be 
no uprising, for it is regret- 
tably true that too many 
don't care anymore. Because 
their individualities have 
been bludgeoned, wrenched, 
mutilated, and in so many 
other ways trespassed against 
that they can no longer un- 
derstand. They do not realize 
what it is they've lost. They 

can no longer see. Theemper- 
or has ordered their eyes sear- 
ed shut by a hot poker. Now 
watch the lions playfully bat 
them around before the kill. 
And the spectators delight, 
viewing the antics from their 
one angle of vision. 

There can only be one set 
of reactions to these exam- 
ples. Do not submit! Beyour- 
self. If you must have com- 
mandments, for god's sake 
follow your own. For it is 
the individual who has pro- 
pelled humanity forward, 
eventually, brash by daring 
step, and we all can help 
ease this continuing process. 
We can all be an artist, paint- 
ing our lives, yet also appreci- 
ate another's art without 
condemning it arbitrarily. 
And the arenas will crumble, 
finally, when the spectators 
stop attending the Games, 
having lost their lack of pur- 
pose. We each have our own 
distinctive style, suited to 
our environment and our will 
to change it. Participate with 
your life. 

College should not con- 
done or breed collectivism in 
any way, shape, or form. It 
is the individual spirit which 
must flower, on its own, 
having discovered its own 
ground of existence. 

Each of us has the ability 
to choose, if we but dare. We 
can be dominated by public 
opinion, or we can learn to 
base our experience on won- 
der and astonishment. A sort 
of freeing wisdom can be 
gleaned with this approach, a 
way to ride ahead of common- 
ness and decay. 

The free, human spirit is 
concerned with the widest 
domains. To suckle one's life 
'on flights of fancy will lead 
somewhere. We each must 
find the courage to unearth 
exactly where, and why. 

You can always be a spec- 
tator again, if that's really 
what you want to be.

Wrestlers win first Kim 
Coddington tournament 

Team balance carried the day for the California Lutheran 
College wrestling team Saturday night as they claimed the 
team title in the first annual Kim Coddington Memorial Wrest- 
ling Tournament. Biola College finished right behind the Kings- 
men with 56 points to CLC's 71. Claremont-Mudd edged Cal 
State University Northridge for third place honors with the 
schools totaling 26/! and 2016 respectively. Cal Lutheran's 
well balanced team produced nine finalists in the ten weight 
divisions but things got a little tough in the evening session and 
the only Kingsmen to take home first place honors were 142 lb. 
Scott Solberg and 177 lb. Lance Marcus. 

Solberg's exciting leg wrestling led to a dramatic 14-3 vic- 
tory over Biola's Russ Engevick and the tournament's Out- 
standing Wrestler Trophy. Solberg will share the trophy due 
to a tie in the balloting with Biola's 118 lb. George Barchie. 

March 3, 1978 


Barchie pulled off the biggest upset of the evening by coming V."» 
"th only seconds ^^^ 

back from a 7-1 deficit to pick up fi' 

left on the clock and defeat CLC's nationally ranked Schwehi 
Schwehn seemed to lose his concentration midway through 
the second period and Barchie rallied for the victory. The de- 
feat was Schwehn's first at the hands of an NAIA oppenent. 
Schwehn had defeated Barchie by signigicant margins on both 
previous encounters. 

Solberg and Marcus will travel to the NAIA Nationals in 
Whitewater, Wisconsin on Tuesday. Seven other CLC wrestlers 
have now qualified for the Nationals but a first place finish in 
the Coddington was set up as CLC's criteria for funding indi- 

The Coddington title marked a dramatic close to CLC's 
best ever wrestling season. CLC finished 16-4 in dual meet 
competition and placed 2nd in the Whittier and Cal-Tech 
tournaments to Biola. Three of CLC's four losses were to Biola, 
the fourth was to powerful Cal State Fullerton. "Two things 
happened tonight that I'll remember for a long time," said 
CLC Head Coach Buck Deadrich following the tournament 
finals. "We paid tribute to the memory of a great friend and 
a beautiful person and we did it in style. And CLC finally took 
home a team championship. The fact that it was the Kim Cod- 
dington Memorial Tournament made this thing more impor- 
tant than any event of the year."

win 60th 
dual meet 

By Craig Hetland 

Thanks to some brilliant 
first place performances, the 
CLC track team squeaked 
out top honors in last weeks 
Biola invitational. Running 
a close second, 15 points 
behind, was Biola College. 

The Kingsmen were led 
by seniors Jeff Kennedy, 
Donnie Grant, Don Weeks 
and Ken Edwins. Kennedy 
won both the 110 and 400 
meter hurdles. Grant teamed 
up with Kennedy, Greg Tog- 
netti and Bob Eddy to place 
first in the 1600 meter relay. 
Grant also won the 400 
meter run. Don Weeks won 
the high jump with a leap of 
6'6" and Edwins had a fine 
161 '2" effort in the hammer 
throw. Jonny Walker also 
had a fine afternoon easily 
winning the long jump and in 
his first try for CLC in the 
100 meter dash, Walker again 
took a first with an excellent 
time of 11.63. 

Final team standings were 

CLC 115, Biola 100, Red- 
lands 31 and Cal Tech 11. 
The CLC athletes managed to 
roll up 12 of a possible 18 
first places. The next meet 
for the Kingsmen will he a 
dual against USIU here at 
Mount Clef field. 

Netters win 
1, drop 2 

By Richard Bier 

The Cal Lutheran Netters 
defeated hosts Chapman Col- 
lege convincingly 6-3, but 
then suffered back to back 
home losses to Biola and 
Loyola Marymount. 

Chapman jumped ahead 
in the match 3-0 but strong 
singles play by Richard Bier, 
Allen Cudahy and Bruce 
Cudahy knotted the match 
at three all. CLC swept in 
doubles behind the teams 
of Shawn Howie-James 
Rower, Bier-Theodore Her- 
hold, and the Cudahy broth- 
ers to get their first victory 
of the season. 

Tomorrow at 2:30 the 
Kingsmen will host Whittier 
College. In a recent match 
the Poets defeated CLC in a 
tough 5-4 match. 

Regals gain 
third place 

By Sara Christensen 

The Regals' efforts last 
weekend were superb. Despite 
the fact that a number of 
team members were absent, 
the women's track team was 
able to place third at the 
Biola Invitational. 

Laurie Hagopian, a Fresh- 
man at CLC, was thi 
runner at the meet. She placed 
third in the 1500 meter run 
even though she was not feel- 
ing well. She came back later 
in the day to win first in the 
5,000 meter run setting a 
new CLC record with a time 
of 19:04.5. Hagopian is the 
first woman to run the 5,000 
meter race for CLC. She is 
one of the top marathon run- 
ners in the area and she re- 
cently placed seventh out of 
one thousand participants in 
the Leggs Marathon held in 
San Diego two weeks ago. 

Other commendable run- 
ners were Carol Cummings, 
placing second in the inter- 
mediate hurdles and Teri 
Mendoza who came in third 
for the second consecutive 
meet in the shot put at 30 ft. 
5/2 Inches. Scheila Pikes, a 
new addition to the Regals, 
placed fourth in the shot 
put. First and second place 
went to CSULB whose mem- 
bers put 48 feet and 38 feet 
2 inches respectively. 

Coach Dale Smith, along 
with other team coaches, was 
upset by the poor manage- 
ment of the javelin throw. 
Due to time and poor judging, 
some of the throws were not 
marked properly and all par- 
ticipants received only four 
of their allotted six throws. 
This caused an argument be- 
tween the Biola manager of 
the meet and the coaches, 
but, in spite of protests by 
coaches and team members, 
the situation was not changed. 
On the whole, the team 
performed quite well, even 
beating Redlands, one of 
the Regal's main rivals, in the 
events where both had entries. 
Coach Smith remarked how 
surprised he was at how well 
the team was developing. 
Laughing, he added, "We're 
almost ready to take" on 

not only get the ball through th. 
it to drop on a court in Switzerland, ' 
always wanted to travel and react with 
different people," explained Dave, who ulti- 
mately hopes to work for an international 
marketing program. After corresponding with 
friends playing professional basketball in 
Austria and Sweden, he decided playing profes- 
sional ball in Europe would be a good opportu- 
nity of learning ways and traditions of other 
people he may one day be working with. Accord- 
ingly, he has spoken with scouts from Europe, 
made his connections, and plans to leave for a 
two-year period in Switzerland at the end of 
July. "Basketball opens a lot of doors for me," 
related Dave. 

Ever since Dave was a small kid, basketball 
held a special place in his life. He's alternately 
played guard, forward, and center through his 
high school, Pierce College, and CLC programs. 
*'| like the athletic program here," admitted 
Dave, "When the program is good you can have 
basketball and other things. I've never had so 
much fun. We all get along really well." 

Dave comnares basketball to a small society 
in itself. "Athletics is such a mental thing," he 
reflected, "You're working with people and 
learning to communicate with them." Although 
he explained basketball prepares you for the 
star competition faced in the "real world," he pointed 
out, "You're still out there to have fun. I like to 
see people be friends instead of being at war out 

When basketball season's over, Dave likes to 
"Hang up my shoes for awhile. I can't play year- 
round," he explained. "I take pride in all the 
sports I like, I couldn't eat, sleep and drink bas- i 
ketball; there's too many other things to do." T 
s other sports include tennis, golf, volley- A

Theft outbreak plagues campus 

The art building was just one of the buildings v 
in a spree after Interim. This and other thefts have been 
during the last six months on campus. Photo by Pain 

By Michaela Crawford 

A rash of thefts has plag- 
ued the California Lutheran 
College campus during .the 
last six months. Over $80UU 
worth of goods has been stol- 
en during that period. 

According to Palmer Ol- 
son, campus security, tne 
thefts date back to August 5, 
1977 when $4000 worth or 
camera equipment were 
ta-ken during the noon hour 
from Buck Deadrich s ottice. 
On September 30, two type 
writers valued at approxi- 
mately $650 apiece were 
from one athletic of- 
n the gym sometime 
■ the afternoon or even- 
xording to the athletic 
secretary, Rachel Gil- 



Since Christmas vacation, 
^'eve Bartosh's car was brok- 
en into while parked in the 
m - Clef parking lot. A by- 
zander heard the breaking of 
glass and hurried out to the 
lot but the would-be thief 
*as gone. The burglar later 
returned and attempted to 
remove the stereo speakers 
but settled for five tapes 
worth $25.00. Bartosh had 
to obtain an emergency loan 
'o replace the shattered win- 
dow on the driver's side. 

At the end of Interim van- 
dals embarked 
which resulted 

broken windows on campus. 
The weekend of February 2 
was the time of the campus 


TV van's break in during 
which $350 worth of equip- 
nent was removed. At ap- 
proximately this same time, 
the studio was robbed and 
$2300 worth of equipment 
disappeared, including a 16 
mm. sound projector. 

More recently a thief en- 
tered the men's locker room 
at night and stole 3 team 

ers for transistor radios, 
sweat suits, etc. The locks 
were completely removed 
from the lockers, according 
to Coach Don Bielke. 

Later some juveniles stole 
two basketball varsity shorts 
and two varsity shirts valued 
at $46 from the laundry 
room. Approximately two 

weeks ago someone broke 
the lock on the window and 
broke the door to obtain two 
basketballs valued at $32 
each from the gym. 

These thefts, including 
the stolen amplifier from K- 
building over Interim break, 
have disturbed campus secur- 
ity. The police have been 
contacted in some cases but 
Olsen stated, "The police are 
at a loss. There's no way of 
knowing who did it." 

Olsen suggested that any 
strange or unusual activities 
be reported to campus secur-

An agreement was 
reached by Prime Minister 
Ian Smith and three moder-

desia last week, spelling 
out terms for a transition 
from white minority rule 
to black majority rule by 
the end of 1978. 

But international ap- 
proval for the settlement 
seemed to be lacking. Both 
Washington and London 
have not, as yet, endorsed 
the accords reached after 
three months of hard bar- 
gaining. Moreover, black 
nationalists spurned the 
internal settlements and 
threatened continued 

guerrilla warfare against 
the present Rhodesian

Unless more unrestricted 
money is given, there is a 
possibility that CLC will end, 
for a second year in a row, 
in a deficit situation. 

"We are at a better in- 
come point than ever before 
however, we are receiving 
more restricted monies," said 
President Mark A. Mathews 
when asked about CLC's 
j fici i.m.j,., f.„ Lhe ,. : 
demicyear 1977-78. 

To achieve the two goals 
of building the Learning 
Resource Center and main- 
taining a balanced budget, 
more unrestricted donations 
will be needed. Increased tui- 
tion has not covered the costs 
of inflation. So far this year, 
approximately 1 .4 million, 
dollars has been contributed 
for specific purposes like the 
Learning Resource Center. 

Eight years ago CLC faced 
the problem of a deficit 
budget which almost closed 
the school. With the help of 
the American Lutheran 
Church and the Lutheran 
Church in America, CLC was 
able to secure a one million 
dollar loan. This kept the 
school from collapsing.

Scholarships certify 
'exceptional ability' 

By Carol Solverson 

This year's Women's League Scholarship recipients, Kari 
Johnson, Vicki Edgar, and Julie Wulff, were recently honored 
at a luncheon put on by the Women's League in the Nelson 
Room Saturday, February 25. 

The Women's League, composed of women involved some- 
how with the CLC community, such as faculty, staff, adminis- 
tration, and wives of the above, and also the wives of pastors 
in the Conejo Valley, has been awarding these scholarships 
since 1965 and 28 have been awarded to date. Past recipients 

have included Melinda Riley, now Director of Housing here at 
CLC, and Barb Bornemann, assistant to the pastor for the 
1976-77 school year. 

CLC's Women's League was begun in 1964 to bring the 
women of the college community together to become better 
acquainted, and for the purpose of awarding scholarships. The 
League has an activity every month and uses the money re- 
ceived from its small membership fee and fund raisers through- 
out the year to provide these scholarships. They will be having 
a bake sale at the upcoming "Scandinavian Day" here at CLC 
Saturday, March 11, and they encourage all women to come 
support this fund-raiser. They also encourage all women in- 
volved within the CLC community to come join them in their 
activities throughout the year. 

Women's League Scholarships, which are given to CLC 
junior women students to be used for their senior year at CLC, 
are worth $150 each, and are awarded mainly on the basis of 
GPA, need, and school involvement. The certificates that the 
recipients received stated, "This is to certify that {name of 
recipient* has shown exceptional jhilitv and achieved oul- 
standing i tftiUg lll l l m i i n mum a il tf UI MUIH U l rntellcctual inter- 
est and a responsibility to her community." The Dean of Stu- 
dents makes recommendations as to who should receive these 
awards then these are further checked out with both the 

registrar and financial aid offices in regards to the GPA and 
financial need of those involved. The Women's League Board 
then makes the final decision as to which three are the most 
deserving and notifies them appropriately. 

A possibility for next year's awards is that of awarding one 
to a foreign student so that she may be able to come to CLC 
and study here for a year. Jan Swanson, English teacher here 
at CLC, has been discussing this with President Rosella Hagen 
and the Board, and they seem interested, but have not made 
this a known fact as of yet. 

Vicki, Julie, and Kari were all pleased and thankful at re- 
ceiving these scholarships, but admitted that they were a little 
shocked when they were notified that they were this year's 
recipients. All three of these students have been here 3 years 
and fit quite well into the CLC atmosphere. They really enjoy 
it here and are looking forward to a fantastic senior year. Intel- 
ligent and involved, these three students put a lot of time into 
their studies as well as extracurricular activities, either within 
the school and the community, or just for their own enioyment.

Developments loom large 

By Janet Persson 

The final decisions regard- 
ing the construction of the 
Learning Resource Center 
(LRC) and the new Olsen 
Road will be made at the end 
of this semester. 

The way things stand now 

concerning the LRC, CLC is 

one million dollars shy of its 

goal and building will be de- 

■ ; layc-d until funds become 

H available at an escalating cost 

g of 1% for every month we 

delay, however, efforts are 

being made to raise the 

necessary funds. 

According to Dean Bu- 
chanan, Vice President of 
Business and Finance, CLC is 
holding a money drive in the 
American Lutheran Churches 
of the South Pacific District 
which includes approximately 
250 parishes. April 16th has 
been designated as the CLC 
Appeal Sunday, a day during 
which most congregations 
will conduct special services 
for the college as part of 
their morning worship. The 
administration hopes to hold 
groundbreaking ceremonies 
before the end of this sum- 
mer, hopefully before the 

end of the current spring 
semester. The Board of Trus- 
tees of the ALC and the Ex- 
ecutive committee of the 
Board of Regents mutually 
agreed that groundbreaking 
will take place as soon as the 
College comes within $1 mil- 
lion of the total cost of the 

On may 27th the Board 
of Regents will be meeting to 
discuss whether or not they 
are ready to give the go-ahead 
on actual construction of the 

The Heitner Corporation 
of St. Louis has agreed to 
loan CLC the $3 million 
necessary for the buifding of 
the LRC. This loan is to be 
paid off in five years as 
pledges are realized. 

Plans for the building it- 
self have not all been cleared 
by city boards. The board on 
Building Safety has expressed 
some concern relating to the 
proposed skylight which runs 
the length of the ceiling. 
They are concerned that a 
glass alley may pose serious 
problems if it becomes over, 
heated by the sun. The glass 
alley is a relatively, new 

structural idea, but has prov- 
en to be sound in other 
buildings in which it has been 
constructed. The board pro- 
posed a sprinkler system as a 
safeguard, but in a library an 
accident with the sprinklers 
would be disasterous for the 
books. According to Kidem, 
Vice President of Develop- 
ment, "The LRC will set the 
avchitectural style for the 
coming years and will be a 
bold statement of our dedica- 
tion to quality education." 

The contract bid made in 
September is no longer valid 
and hopes are that we will be 
able to begin accepting new 
bids on May 1st with firm 
cost figures. This new con- 
tract will again be valid for 
a 60 day period. 


When asked about the sale 
of the remaining lots, Bu- 
chanan stated that there are 
no plans to sell in the imme- 
diate future, but that with 
replacement spaces being 
made available the lots along 
the former language houses 
will be sold. This would be 
continued on page 2 

approximately a year or the 
1979-80 term. The lots them- 
selves can only bring in ap- 
proximately $30,000 and at 
this point would contribute 
very little to the raising of 


The plans for the Olsen 
Road project have also been 
progressing. It is estimated 
that this project will take 
six months for construction, 
which will hopefully begin at 
the end of August or early 

Drastic changes in the 



Bill 1-78, authored by

vide a catalyst for ASCLC 
projects towards the end of 
the semester.

Clowns, boa-constrictors, 
and eagles greeted children 
and young-hearted adults last 
weekend when Moorpark 
College presented its second 
annual exotic animal circus. 

The circus, while not your 
spectacular Barnum and 
Bailey production, was an en- 
joyable hour and a half which ; 
showed the pop-corn munch- 
ing audience the interesting 
and beautiful animals that 
belong to the college com- 
pound. Schmoo the sea lion 
and Valentine the came), 
along with three very soft 
and very exotic llamas, pro- 
vided the most unique events 
of the show. But no circus 
would be complete without 
ponies and elephants, and 
the audience was happy to 
see both. 

The exotic animal training 
program at the college is an 
internationally renowned or- . 
ganization. The 40 students 
involved are selected from 
500 applicants each year, and 
work in the program on a 24 
hour, 365 day a year basis. 
The students are tremendous- 
ly serious about their work

The Los Angeles Times 
has recently found out that 
hundreds of California 
doctors have become the 
main illegal suppliers of 
dangerous drugs to thous- 
ands of young people 
across the state. 

The doctors are illegally 
giving out close to a mil- 
lion pills a day by writing 
prescriptions for anyone 
who can pay their fees. 
Narcotics agents say the 
doctors now illegally sup- 
ply about 90% of all 
pharmaceutical drugs on 
the street. Some of these 
doctors are earning up to 
$1,000 a day writing illegal 
prescriptions for anybody 
who can pay the $10 to $20 
fee, preferably in cash.

original plans for the road 
have produced some financial 
roadblocks. The original plan 
ran along the lines of a two 
lane country road, but has 
now developed with plans of 
the city into a four lane high- 
way with a midway divider 
along with landscaping. The 
bond of $48,000 posted 
earlier is no longer enough to 
cover the new cost estimate 
of $200,000. 

CLC and city planners 
have proposed and counter 
proposed on how the esca-

of yet, no information has 
become available on how fin-

Capitol educated students 

s! By Alicia Thornton, 

'Sacramento Here We Come' could be the theme of the trip the Dr. Jonathan Steepee's State 
and Urban Government class takes every year. Each year this class attends the Sacramento Leg- 
lip islative Seminar. This year the seminar took place February 25-28. 

We left Saturday morning for our beautiful state capital. My car took scenic route 99, while 
another car went up the coast route. Seven hours later, we arrived in Sacramento. Since my car 
had taken the shorter route we arrived first at St. John's Lutheran Church, where we stayed. It 
was a little upsetting to get there and not be able to go in.bu, the problem was solved shortly 
f | when one of Dr. Steepee's former students showed up with the key 

hor dinner the group went acrosss the the street to Mario's Italian Restraunt. The small fam- 
ily-run restraunt is where Govenor Brown and numerous other state officals eat. After dinner I 
had the fun job of traveling to the airport to pick up one of the students who flew in. The only 
problem was, that I went to the wrong airport. It seams that Sacramento has two airports, that 
:J| problem, however, was soon straightened out. 

.** On Sunday we went to Sutter's Fort and the Old Govenor's Mansion before attending the 

i first session of the convention. We also visited Old Sacramento which is part of the town that 

m has been restored to resemble the buildings during the 1850's. In Old Sacramento there are 

if p aces like Fanny Anne's which is a collection of antiques and "other collectables" in a bar. It is 

■ like a historic museum of the last hundred years. 

The seminar started Sunday night with a panel of professionals in government. Their jobs 
ranged from special advisor to the finance committee to an educational staff person. Their main

nate bill 346 or the Peripheral Canal. This is of importance to Southern California because it re- 
gards water supplies to farms in the San Joaquin Valley. In times of drought, like this past year, 
a project of this type would be useful. Both sides explained their positions on the passage of the 

The second panel Monday was the constitutional officers. March Fong Eu, Secratary of 
State and Ken Cory , State Controller, both spoke to us. They told us about what was goine on in 
the senate, which just happened to be our next stop. 

The California State Senate has to be one of the most efficiently run operations in the U S 
The meeting started at 1:15 and finished by 1:4U. The meeting adjourned, so the 
senators could go in committee meetings. 

One thing learned was that in Sacramento they give thesame amount of bureaucratic run a- 
round as they do anywhere else. The class was assigned to choose an assembly district and get 
some information about it. In the process of learning about My district I must have visted 20 
offices, and been on all six floors. It was a wild goose chaie but I learned the location of iust 
about everything in the capital.

Vicki, a business major, was quite involved in SPURS, the 
sophomore service organization no longer in existence, and 
was also a lab assistant tor anatomy during her sophomore 
year. She enjoyed both quite a bit and was really disappointed 
to see SPURS go this year. She did become a member of the 
Presidential Hosts this year, though. This group of involved 
students serves CLC by giving tours to prospective students 
and their families, talks with Regents when they are here' 
about the school, assists with such activities as the upcoming 
"Scandinavian Day", and will be involved with Visitation Day 
here this spring and the welcoming of new students next fall. 
Enthusiastic about everything she's involved in, Vicki also has 
participated in intramural sports, having lots of fun while 
doing so. Vicki is also very enthusiastic about one special 
person here on campus, senior Don Weeks, and they are look- 
ing forward to a summer wedding. 

Julie, a pre-med major, has been running for CLC's Cross 
Country and Track teams for the past few years, and is quite 
successful. She runs the mile in track, and hopes to be involved 
in such things as coed football, coed Softball, and even pan- 
cake eating contests. 

Last, but not least, Kari, an education major, is also involved 
in many campus activities. She has an assistantship with the 
education department and acts as a student teacher three days 
a week for preschoolers at the school on the hill. She finds this 
experiencevery exciting and worthwhile. She is also involved 
with the "Scandinavian Day" Committee and is very active 
with the "New Earth Collective", a group that focuses on 
awareness of world issues. Presently they are saving cancelled 
stamps which will be sent to the Bodelschwingh Institutions 
in Bethel, Germany. These stamps are fixed up by severely 
handicapped people and then are resold. Through the New 
Earth Collective, Kari is also heading a group that will spend 
one of their Saturdays working to improve the Los Ninos 
Orphanage in Tijuana. A speaker will first come to CLC to talk 
and present a movie on this orphanage to better acquaint those 
going with the conditions there. Kari was very excited about 
receiving this scholarship as she has never won anythine be- 
fore in her lite. fi 

A large turnout of women attended the formal luncheon 
organized by Jan Swanson, held in the girls' honor. All went 
well as Janet Roberts presented a slide show and special music 
was provided by students Carol Goff, on the piano, and Cathy 
Durkovic, on the recorder. Awards were presented and all 
three recipients were congratulated for their fine achievements.

Three unique and enjoy- 
able senior music recitals 
were performed for the CLC 
community during the 
month of February. 

The first was given at 
7:00 pm on February 1 1 by 
San Jose senior Eric Bertel- 
sotv. The trumpet recital 
took place in Nygreen 1, 
with the reception held 
?fterwards in Nygreen 2; 
The trumpet player's mother 
made all the flower arrange- 
ments and most of the re- 
freshments for the recep- 
tion. The many difficult 
pieces were performed well, 
but maybe the most enjoy- 
able to listen to was Le- 
cuona's "Malaguena," ar- 
ranged by Klickman. The 
last number on the program, 
it featured a brass quartet 
made up of Bertelson, Gary 
Larson, Bob Hood and 
Greg Hollister. Bertelson 
takes lessons from Mr. Elmer 

Joan Reeve gave the 
second recital on February 
25 at 3:00 pm in Nygreen 1. 
The South Pasadena voice 
major's recital was well- 
attended, and she seemed to 
be at ease, in spite of the 
fact that she had been locked 
out of her dressing room 
only half an hour before 
Ms. Reeve's twelve years 
of piano helped her to ar- 
range two Negro spirituals 
which were last on the pro- 
gram: "Deep River" and 
Go on, Brother". She was 
assisted in these by an en- 
semble drawn from the 
Concert Choir. Ms. Reeve's 
reception was held after- 
wards in the SUB and the 
refreshments were catered.l 

The third and last recital 
of the month was given 
coincidentally, at 7:00 on 
the same day as Ms. Reeve's 
and by her roommate, Karen 
Myrehn. Ms. Myrehn and 
her viola, Maynard, gave an 

excellent performance, but 
the number most enjoyed 
by those present was Bruch's 
"Kol Nidrei opus 47." Ms. 
Myrehn's family drove from 
Prescott, Arizona to be pre- 
sent. Following the recital, 
the reception was held in 
Nygreen 2 and featured re- 
freshments that Ms. Myrehn 
had made herself.

Self-made college coed 
makes her own kind of music 

By Reggie Gee 

There are many exceptional students attending California 
Lutheran College. One student who must rate high on the scale 
of uniqueness is an eighteen year old freshman, Cathy Durkovic, 
from Guatemala City. That's right. Guatemala. The daughter 
and oldest child of a foreign missionary, Cathy found herself 
in a perplexed situation when, at the age of nine, her father 
was assigned his first call to the Central America city. And 
he's still there. 

Here now, Cathy is majoring in music. But, unlike most 
CLC students, she never hums the jingle of her old alma mater. 
She doesn't have one. Attending a private bi-lingual school up 
to her eighth grade year, Cathy found herself without a long 
awaited high school when it came grade school graduation 

Now came the important decision. What would she do? She 
could attend the only available native school which was based 
on memorization as opposed to comprehension, or she could 
leave her parents, three brothers, and two sisters, to continue 
her schooling in the states, or, finally, she could do her high 
schooling through correspondence. The latter was her decision. 

So, "I wrote to the University of Nebraska's High School 
Extention Program. They suggested I write my own schedule so 
I could work at my own pace." She began immediately. 
"Through the university, I began to prepare for college by 
taking basic required courses such as English, math, and his- 

Attending a private bi-tingual school up to her eighth 
grade year, Cathy found herself without a long awaited high 
school when it came grade school graduation time. 

tory. I chose to keep away from electives because I was al- 
ready taking private music lessons." 

It took Cathy six months to get used to the self-discipline 
required for studying constantly and alone. Her only incentive? 
Self-improvement. And she did improve. "My books were my 
only companions. The access to a small library and my ency- 
clopedias soon became my only instruction." Although work- 
ing this way was difficult, "I at least had a good supervisor to 
handle my exams and books. He happened to be my father." 

Here at CLC, Cathy found herself having to make a diffi- 
cult transition: competing and learning with peers. "I visited 
here a few times and at first I was not impressed. But on a 
second visit, I found myself delighted with the music depart- 
ment and the personalized attention. I'd rather have limited 
facilities than forfeit individualized attention." Cathy 
found other favorable interests here at Cat Lutheran. "Two 
things that are important to me are having small classes and 
participating in a Christian environment. Being one of twenty 
in a class is difficult, but being one of five-hundred would be 
terrible." Other reasons for choosing CLC were climate and 
the close proximity to relatives who reside in Seal Beach.

Coffers filled for hearts; 
backpacking this Easter 

Cathy remembers that "even though Guatemala had its 
disadvantages, the advantages were many. "For one thing, I 
loved living there so much, I'd like to go back." And although 
"there is nothing to do there," it still offers many rewarding 

While there, because of her musical talents, "I was able to 
work for a recording studio, help with commercials, and was 
able to play keyboards and conduct choirs of local groups and 
churches. Here in the states it's too competitive to get that 
kind of experience." 

Finally, Cathy said she would recommend this type of per- 
sonal schooling to others in foreign countries, but warns to 
"Keep away from correspondant chemistry courses. Most of 
the equipment you need, you have to buy and the university 
cannot send all the necessary chemicals through the mail, 
which makes the course virtually impossible." And she ought 
to know.

The Rock and Rollathon 
for the American Heart 
Association at the Conval- 
arium which took place 
March 28, proved to be a 
huge success. The estimated 
amount when collected, 
according to organizer, 
Marvie Jaynes, will be 
$1,000, which will bedona- 
tedto the Heart Association. 

Thirty students adopted 
patients and searched for 
sponsors throughout the 
campus and community to 
pledge money. Some of the 
participants rolled around 
in wheelchairs while stu- 
dents pushed. A few of the 
patients sustained the pace 
for five to six hours. A com- 
bined effort of dedication 
and enthusiasm made the 
day a worthwhile and re- 
warding experience for 
everyone involved. 

Due to the rain, the 
Passion Pilgrimage has been 
rescheduled for Sunday, 
March 12. This is an impor- 
tant event in observance of 
Lent and Easter. The group 
will meet in Kingsmen Park 
at 10:00 am Sunday.

By Jeri Gray 

We were a unique group 
standing in the TWA terminal 
that morning. First of ail, the 
ratio of males to females 
going on the tour was 1:6, 
the one mate being Dr. Wilfred 
Buth, our leader (people of- 
ten mistook us for his 
daughters, a thing he reacted 
to differently at different

we were much impressed by 
the Delphic Oracle, the Olym- 
pic games site and the Bema 
where St. Paul spoke to the 
Corinthians. We were also 
learning about Greek modern 
life, though, and before we 
left Greece we had learned

times). Also, we were ad 
getting core or major credit, 
so each of us was equipped 
with a notebook, a pen and 
an oral report, researched 
beforehand, which would be 
given sometime during our 
24-day tour. I think the most 
unique thingabout our group, 
however, was the fact that 
we were bound for Greece 
and Italy on the first of Janu- 
ary, 1978 - a good day for 
five out of the seven of us to 
make our first trip to Europe! 
The group consisted of: 
Dr. Buth, Debbie Kniss, Car- 
olyn, i. Linda Steinberg, 
Ellen Hackerd, Julie Mclner- 
ney and Jeri Gray. As we 
boarded the New York-bound 
747 that morning none of us 
could really conceive of where 
we were going. 

The Los Angeles to New 
York leg went fairly fast, but 
our first experience with bad 
weather (and believe me, we 
had plenty!) happened just 
after landing in New York. 
It was snowing, and though 
we enjoyed the going-out- 
side - and -walking - around-m- 
it part, we didn't appreciate 
it as much when our take- 
off was delayed an hour as 
the snow got heavier. Finally 
we left New York, though 
the storm still bothered us in 
the form of turbulence for 
quite a while. 

None of us could really 
remember much about what 
happened to January first or 
second. The thing that seemed 
the wierdest to me was flying 
into the sunrise. I don't think 
it was dark any longer than 
five hours, though it didn't 
matter to some of us; we 
couldn't sleep anyway. 

We changed planes in 
Rome for The last leg to 
Athens, and when we finally 
stepped off the plane in Ath- 
ens we realized that we had 
left Los Angeles 20 hours 
earlier. We didn't notice 
much that night except that 
we had a gorgeous view of 
the Acropolis from our win- 

We spent a total of three 
days in Athens and saw, 
among other things, the Ac- 
ropolis and Socrates' prison. 
Our hotel, the Hotel Plaka, 
had the nicest people of any 
place we stayed (they took 
us in when the bad weather 
left us stranded, forexample); 
the people almost made up 
for the quality of the food. 

Our four-day classical 
tour included Delphi, Olym- 

Greek men like to dance at 

Before leaving Greece, we 
flew to Crete. There we were 
blessed with one of the most 
gorgeous days of the whole 
trip and a climate similar to 
ours. The Palace at Knossos 
is the best preserved dwelling 
of the Minoan people - a 
people who reached such a 
high level of civilization with 
their art and culture in general 
that other peoples didn't ap- 
proach it again for many 
hundreds of years. 

Our ship to Italy was to 
sail from Athens the day we 
came back from Crete, but 
when we arrived back in 
Athens, we had a rude awak- 
ening. Because of the weath- 
er, we wouldn't be able to 
sail until the next day - and 
that time was postponed 
even further when we found 
out that the ship was still in

who was exiled from his 
native Florence. The ice 
cream in Ravenna was the 
best I had ever tasted - and I 
learned right away to ask for 
Stracciatella - that is, choco-

On our way to Florence, 
we took an excursion to Pisa, 
where all but two of us climb- 
ed the leaning tower. It was 
an experience, but it's terri- 
fying enough to climb a 
tower that's standing upright- 
I'd never do it again! 

By noon the next day we 
were in Florence - more than 
any other, the city I had come 
to see. We spent three fabu- 
lous days there, which of 
course weren't enough. In- 
side the Church of Santa 
Croce we saw the Tombs of 
Michaelangelo, Machiavelli, 
Galileo and Rossini. At the 
Academy - Michaelangelo 's 
"David". And in the Uffizi 
Palace, Leonardo's "Gift of 
the Magi" and "The Annunci- 
ation". Florence was incredi- 
ble - it came to be, in my 
mind, the city of the native

and a half later, at about 
noon on Saturday.

but what stands out most in 
my mind is St. Mark's Basili-

apostles were displayed. 

At mid-morning the next

In Rome we had more

we went shopping and after-

love the waiters and the old 
lady who sat near the door 
each evening and said "Buena 
Sera" (good evening) to each 
of us as we came in. The next 
day we saw St. Peter's and 
the Sistine Chapel with 
Michaelangelo's "The Last 
Judgement". And on the 
way out, a little serendipity-

after dinner, an Italian Opera 
for which we had box seats! 

Monday, our last day in 
Rome, we spent on such sights 
as the Coliseum, the Forum

r My Fair Lady'charms audience 

By Carol Solverson 

AWS also got it, (a good 
movie I mean), when they 
showed the movie "My Fair 
Lady" in a packed Nygreen 
1 last Friday evening at 
7:30 pm. 

"My Fair Lady" is the 
story of the transformation 
of Eliza Doolittle from a 
flower seller in the gutter to 
a beautiful and gentile lady. 
Played appropriately by tal- 
ented actress Audrey Hep- 
burn, one can't help but 
relate to and admire this 
lovable character. Professor 
Henry Higgins, played by 
"That extraordinary man," 
Rex Harrison, is Eliza's 
"Savior". A bet with a 
friend that he could not 
take this scroungy looking 
and savage talking young 
girl and turn her into a 

charming and beautiful 
young lady challenges and 
motivates Professor Higgins 
to work terribly hard in 
order that he might succeed 
with this task. He spends 
hours working with Eliza, 
teaching her proper English 
phonetics, and finally suc- 
ceeds in making an elegant 
lady out of her. 

Elaborate costumes and 
sets throughout fascinate 
viewers and add much to 
this well-made movie. A 
musical adopted from 
George Bernard Shaw's play 
"Pygmalion," this movie 
provides those watching with 
some of the world's best 
loved music. One can't for- 
get such greats as "Wouldn't 
It Be Loverly?", "I've 
Grown Accustomed To Her 
Face", "The Rain in Spain 

Falls Mainly on. the Plain", 
and "I Could Have Danced' 
All Night." 

As well as being emotion- 
al, this movie also provides 
bits of sattire and a few 
great lines which fit in at 
just the right times to get 
viewers laughing. Fitting j n 
by bringing laughter and 
smiles to many faces were 
the songs, "Why Can't The 
English Learn To Speak'" 
and "Why Can't a Woman 
Be More Like a Man'" 
both sung by Professor 
Higgins about Eliza. 

Brilliant acting on the 
part of the entire cast has 
helped to make this movie a 
hit for many years, and it 
definitely will be entertain 
ing viewers for many morp

Circles of living come 
to life in '78 Karios 

By Theodore T. Herhold 

The CLC student year- 
book will be available at the 
end of this year, trying once 
again to capture the year in 

Scot Sorensen, editor of 
this year's yearbook, said 
the books will be ready and 
delivered by the week before 
finals if "things work out 
the way they should." 

The name of the year- 
book will be "Kairos," 
which is what the book was 
called last year. Kairos is a 
Greek word meaning fulfill- 
ment of time. Scot explained 
that the book will have a 
graphic theme of circles, 
viewing life as a never-ending 

Like fast year's edition, 
the 1978 Kairos will be 176 
pages long, which Scot says, 
"seems to be the right size 
for the size of the school 
and the amount of activi- 
ties." It will contain the 
underclassmen pictures, a 
large section of candidsand 
campus shots, and a section 
on CLC sports. "Hopefully 
we'll have some good and 
interesting pictures," Scot 
remarked. The book will 
have no color pictures but 
will make use of spot color- 
ing, or the use of a single 

The yearbook's budget is 
$9,700, and will again come 
out of student fees, which 

amount of money needed 
for the yearbook.Mostof this 
year's pictures will be taken 
by either Scot himself, Paul 
Brousseau, or Janet Auer. 
Scot disclosed the possibility 
that next year.students' pic- 
tures may be done by pro- 
fessional photographers, 
with students able to buy 
their own class pictures in 

Scot went on to say that 
the "quality of the yearbook 
will perhaps get better as 
the years go by," but assert- 
ed that, "You need a class 
to insure this." He said, "It's 
just too hard to get people 
together unless they are 
enrolled in a class." 

Presently, the yearbook 
is offered as an independent 
study course, giving out onty 
one credit. There are now 
eight students working on 
the yearbook, but <; rAl 
says that "you can only do 
so much" when people 
aren't pressed to do things, 
as in a classroom situation. 
Scot also pointed out that 
the money situation is "de- 
finitely a disadvantage." At 
his high school, where he 
was active in the yearbook, 
the budget for the year- 
book was $26,000 as op- 
posed to the $9,700 alloted 
for CLC's book. But Scot 
made no excuses, and main- 
tained that the 1978 Kairos 
will "definitely be a good

of Mount Clef foyer. It was there that I came 
upon the first of three scenes that stick sn 
vividly in my mind. Our maintenance staff 
was busy washing the foyer windows. No 
maintenance MAN, it looked more like half of 



the staff! Five men, count them FIVE, were 
busy washing the windows ...on a rainy day...? 
Well, actually only two were washing win- 
dows. The other three were standing by, mak- 
ing suggestions. 

Act two followed a week later. Sitting 
peacefully in my room, I was interrupted by 
a knock at the door. Enter three maintenance 
men. What for? Well, it seems that they had 
received a work order. ..the day before. ..about 
a clogged toilet. Ours had been. Twenty-four 
hours before. I told them that the problem 
had resolved itself. They wouldn't take my 
word for it. So the three of them traipsed 
merrily into the bathroom, looking officious 
and knowledgable. It took the three of them 
fifteen minutes to discover that I was right. 
There was nothing wrong. Why they sent 
three men to look at our toilet, I cannot fath- 
om. Michaelangelo didn't paint the lid, and 

our bathroom isn't done in mosaic tile. The 
only other answer was that two of them would 
hold the safety line in case the other fell in. 

The clincher was yet" to come. It seems 
that one of the other rooms in my dorm (Kra- 
mer Court) was having problems with their 
kitchen sink. had been plugged so long that 
it looked like a cesspool. Finally the cavalry 
came. Rather, maintenance did. To work on 
it they had to go next door and plug up the 
sink there so that it would not drain through 
the same pipes. That was fine. What wasn't so 
great was the fact that they went into the 
bathroom grabbed some towels, and stuffed 
them down the pipes to stop them up. 

These, of course, are only three instances 
of ineptitude. But they were three that I saw. 
How many others are there? 

A major name concert band on campus. 
The first idea I am violently opposed to and 
that is of having it open to the public. The 
idea of five-thousand kids running rampant 
across the campus held in check only by 
twenty security guards sent shivers of horror 
down my spine. On top of that, from where 
would the space for parking come? If two 
people came in a car, that would still mean 
somewhere around 2,500 cars. That would 
present an interesting problem in itself. 

The second idea is to pay for a band pure- 
ly out of student fees and open it only to 
CLC students. The band in mind is Firefall. 
Granted that my knowledge of the world of 
music may be limited but I had to have some- 
body quote the names of several of their 
songs before I could figure out who they were. 
I've talked to a "few" people and they seem 
to have the same lack of knowledge. On top 
of this, how long are they going to play for? 
Two hours? Three? For five thousand dollars, 
I feel that a great deal of entertainment with 
more variety could be had to fill some of 
those weekends that people so often complain 
about. What do YOU think? If you have an 
opinion you'd better let it be known quick 
before a proposal gets rammed through at the 
at the tail end of a senate meeting when all 
anybody is thinking about is going home... 
which was almost the case last week. Have 
an opinion on the subject? Bring it down to 
the SUB this Sunday at 6:30 and let YOUR

ECHO challenges 
faculty and staff 

We of the ECHO have 
received numerous comments 
from faculty and staff, on 
both sides of the fence, con- 
cerning our stand on cafeteria 
problems. We offer this chal- 
lenge to any faculty or staff 
member and their families. 

For one week you will take 
three meals a day in the 
cafeteria. You will not eat 
any meals outside of those 
served and prepared by the 
CLC food services. We ask 
you to notice everything in- 
volved with each meal and to 
make note of it afterward, 
both the positive and nega- 
tive aspects, from the eating 
utensils you use to consume 
the food to the temperature 

and palatability of the food. 

At the end of the week 
we invite you to submit these 
notes and an overview of the 
entire week to us. From these 
we will write a summary 
using the notes from all in- 

Perhaps the Food Services, 
upon seeing this challenge, 
will attempt to remedy some 
of the problems still lacking 
a solution (in all fairness, to a 
certain degree the preparation 
process and serving seems to 
have improved the last sever- 
al weeks) for a few weeks. If 
so, at least we will have ac- 
complished the attainment of 
a respite of digestibility.

Students upset over lack 
of West End parking 

and something must be don> 

By Theodore T. Herhold, 

A very serious problem is plaguing some CLC studei 
these students will continue to suffer. 

Two years ago four new dorms were built at the west end of the campus-Afton, Santa Clara, 
ianta Rosa, and Conejo. Both the administration and the students welcomed the much needed 
dorms with open arms and felt that finally the housing needs of students would be fufilled. But 
recently, a problem has arisen which needs serious attention. I'm referine to the parkins situa- 
tion at the new dorms. 

The situation has reached a point where it has almost gotten out of hand. Anyone who lives 
m West End knows what I'm talking about. When the dorms were built, an ample parking lot 
was also constructed just to the north of the buildings to meet the needs of those students own- 
ing cars. But nobody uses the spaces and for some very good reasons. 

First of all the lighting is so poor that it's practically non-existent. Students who work late at

Letters to the Editor 

Conejo Twin 

Dear Editor, 

I was one of many frust- 
rated CLC students who 
went out in the rain on Dol- 
lar Night at the Conejo Twin 
Theater at the Mall on Feb. 
28 and was turned away be- 
cause I could not PROVE 
that I was not sixteen years 
of age (the required qualifi- 
cation to see the R-rated 
"Saturday Night Fever"). 
Now, being that I was born 
March 9, 1957 and have not 
been 16 for five years, I 
considered this a GROSS 
infringement on my rights as 
an adult. 

Not only was the whole 
matter handled in an extreme- 
ly discourteous manner by 
both the salesgirls and the 
manager, (the assistant man- 
ager treated it in a somewhat 
more courteous manner -- she 
probably realized how ludi- 
crous the whole situation was} 

but both decidedly rejected

though all three of my 
friends and roommates were 
sold tickets. I explained that 
I had not taken my purse or 
wallet because of the rain, 
because it has been a LONG 
time since I was a sophomore 
in high school, and because 
I had already seen the movie 
without having to prove my 
age. Not only were there 

many respectable students 
there who had proved their 
own ages and who were 
continually vouching for my 
"acceptable" age, but also I 
had my meal tag in my pock- 
et, several CLC game ticket 
stubs, and I felt that with my 
sincere, honest appeal, I 
should have been allowed to 
buy a ticket. I also pointed 
out to them that their news- 
paper ad did not cite their 
theater as an exceptional one 
which required patrons of 
ANY age to prove they were 
not teeny boppers in disguise, 
but to no avail. They still 

less to say , my friend; 
ed refunds on their tickets. "7 
I assert that this theater 
has gone entirely overboard 
with this asinine campaign to 
exclude patrons from their 
services. They even went so 
far that night as not to allow 
a middle-aged man to buy a 
ticket for his wife until they 
could look at her. They would 
not allow a mother to buy 
a ticket for her son's friend. 
Many other CLC students 
who had neglected to bring 
their wallets were also told, 
in so many words, that their 
money was not wanted. 

I would urge CLC stu- 
dents, and any one else in 
fact who has been imposed 
upon by this ridiculous movie 
theater, NOT to patronize 
the Conejo Twin, except of 
course on Dollar Night. I 
agree that it's a very good 
deal few could resist, and 
besides, it's at their expense. 
I would, however, urge you 
to bring your ID (even if it's 

Secondly, the amount of broken glass and rocks in the parking area makes it impractical even 
if someone did want to park there. In short, students aren't willing to park their cars in the 
parking lot because it's just not practical nor safe enough. 

Consequently, those who can't find spaces in the circular area right next to the dorms, are 
parking their cars on the street, and being ticketed for it. One student, Rhondi Pinkstaff, has 
received over 1 5 such tickets. Rhondi, whose situation is similar to a number of other students, 
works late at night, and by the time she gets back to her dorm all the available spaces are taken. 
So she ends up parking in the street. But Rhondi insists she doesn't know what else to do. "We 
are willing to cooperate with the administration and Security if they were to offer us a plan, but 
(hey just haven't given us one." 

One aspect of the problem that needs to be dealt with is that Security just doesn't seem to 
^be doing its job. "They are too busy giving us tickets, and not looking out for our safety," said 
" Michele Conser, another student who has received over 15 parking tickets. If Security's job is to 
make life safe and secure for students, then they aren't doing anyone a service by forcing stu- 
dents to either park their cars in the unsafe and unprotected parking lot, or else get a ticket for 
parking it in the street. Michele went so far as to say that Security is "too busy writing tickets 
to prevent a rape." Both girls are understandably upset over the situation and vowed that they 
won't pay their fines, which range from $3 to $10 per ticket. Both also realized they won't be 
allowed to graduate until they do. 

There are a few things that could be done if Security and the administration are willing to 
listen. First of all, the lighting in the parking lot could be greatly improved, making it at least a 
little safer for students to park there. Secondly, Security should actively patrol the area at night 
instead of taking up all their time writing tickets. If niether of these solutions works, then may- 
be some sort of escort system should be worked out, something similar to what they have at 
some of the larger schools. And lastly, if the school can't guarantee the safety of the cars parked 
in the lot, or of the students themselves, then the school vans, which now occupy parking spaces 
next to the dorms, should be parked in the area, allowing space for student cars. 

We're hoping some sort of solution can be worked out to this serious problem. Students at 
the West End aren't out to break the rules, but they simply just don't know where to park their 
cars where it will be safe. Let's hope it doesn't take a car to be broken into, or a woman to be 

this. At this time Walt Miller, 
head of facilities, would like 
to have the cooperation of 
the students and faculty in 
an effort to lower the con- 
sumption of energy.

and you're a 40 year old pro-

any of the staff (except may- 
be the ushers who were al-

ticket-takers SHOULD have 
been), dress up in sophisti- 
cated clothes in case they 
think you have a fake ID, 
and, as a last resort, bring 
along six or eight of your 
largest and meanest looking 
male friends who can threat- 
en to storm the gate if all 
else fails.

turn it off if the room isn't 
going to be in use for a while. 
The students of CLC could

from the money that they 
save by the end of the year. 
This will depend on the stu- 
dents and faculty.

Saving Energy 

Dear Editor, 

Over the last four years, 
electrical rates for CLC have 
risen 130%, and in the future 
the school can look forward 
to the possibility of another 
increase. Within the next 
three years a 300% increase 
in gas costs can also be ex- 
pected. For those here at the 
Lu this may mean that the 
increase in school costs for 
next year will not be enough 
to cover the rising costs of 

Much can be done to stop

Regals close out season, 
plan for 1979 campaign 

By Pete Sandberg, 

On Tuesday night the CLC 
Women's basketball team 
crushed Westmont College 
85 to 38. The Regals had a 
fine night as Westmont prov- 
ed no match for CLC in any 

High scoring honors went 
to Ginny Green wfth 23 
points. Ginny utilized the 
fast break on her way to top 
point fame. Erica Stein 
showed fine out-side shoot- 
ing totaling 15 points. Brid- 
gette Sheard came on strong 
to boost the CLC score with 

But upon returning to the 
home stands. Cal Lutheran 
was dealt a disappointing de- 
feat at the claws of Chapman 
College. The 98 to 66 heart- 
breaker was the last game of 
the season. 





Lisa Roberts was a bright 
spot as she added 23 points 
to the CLC score. Linda 
Shields and Irene Hull con- 
tributed 12 points a piece. 
Linda also pulled down 12 
rebounds during the game. 

A post-season wrap-up of 
the talents and misfortunes 
show an aggressive and talent- 
ed Women's basketball team. 
Anyone who has witnessed 
any of the Regal 's games 
realizes the structure of tal- 
ented individuals within the 
well knit Women's basketball 
team of CLC. 

Consistency is a key word 
in athletic performance. 
Linda Shields lives by this. 
An average of 9 rebounds 
and 14 points per game with 
50% at the freethrow line 
speaks for her basketball 
wizardry. But one player can- 
not do it alone. Enter Irene 
I Hull who is very close to 
Linda in stats. Irene averaged 
12 points per game for the 
Cal Lutheran Regals. 

"Lisa Roberts runs away 
'with improvement honors," 
cited Coach Nancy Trego. 
Lisa has git 65% of her shots 
from the freethrow line while 
adding 10 points per game 
from the floor. 

Ginny Green is the key to 
CLC's defense. Ginny is high- 
ly agressive defensively, which 
keeps any opponent cauti- 
ous. Then put Erica Stein 
in and the opposing team 
has a hard time at both ends 
of the court. 

Bridgette Sheard is a new 

player who has worked well 

into Ms. Trego's game plan.

By Pete Sandberg 

An honest mistake could 
have developed into a serious 
problem for CLC's athletic 
department. Post-season ath- 
letic probation for Kingsmen 
would have been the sentence, 
which would have serviousfy 
hurt Cal Lutheran's athletes. 

For many months, head 
wrestling coach Buck Dead- 
rich tried very hard to gather 
transcripts to establish an 
eligibility status for CLC's 
star heavyweight wrestler, 
Paul Brown. Faculty Ath- 
letic Representative Dr. 
Johnson added his efforts to 
the bureaucratic quagmire 
and, finally, they thought 
that they had succeeded. The 
formal eligibility request and 
transcripts were then sent to 
the National NAIA commit- 
tee for a formal approval. 

In the meantime. Brown 
was allowed to compete with 
the understanding that he 
was an eligible athlete. Real- 
izing the mistake, CLC Ath- 
letic Director Don Green 
contacted the NAIA District 
office to try and clear CLC 
of any wrongdoing because 
when a school uses an ineli- 
gible athlete, the school is 
automatically put on post- 
season athletic probation. 

This penalty would bar the 
school from any athletic 
championships which follow 
the regular season. 

The National NAIA office 
said that it would follow the 
district offices recommenda- 
tion on the matter because of 
the shortness in time before 
the National Wrestling Cham- 
pionships in which CLC had 
planned on entering. The 
District NAIA office 

realized that it was an honest 
mistake and declared CLC 
eligible for post-season com- 
petition. The National office 
did the same, following the 
District office's lead. 

However, CLC must for- 
feit all of Paul's matches as 
a consequence. This lowers 
the wrestling team'sstandings 
in the tournaments and dual 
match record. The rules must 
be followed to ensure fairness 
to everyone, but the spirit 
of the law was followed and 
all were treated fairly. 
Editor's note: 

We are glad to see that mat- 
ters have once again worked 
out for the best. We only 
wonder how many more of 
these honest mistakes the 
NAIA will allow us to get 
away with before the hand 
of leniency is removed.

Volleyball hits winning 
track early in season 

By Pete Sandberg, 

With only two practices 
under their belt, the Kings- 
men volleyball team fell vicr 
tim to College of the Can- 
yons last Tuesday night. The 
■game was a tightly fought 
contest as the fifth and last 
match decided the match win- 
ner. The two game tie was 
broken by a 15 to 12 win by 
the College of the Canyons 

Coach Bob Ward explain- 
ed that the team had a tre- 
mendous game despite the 
limited practice time. Al- 
though missing middle hitter 
star Dave Blessing, the team 
played well together. To fill 
the gap, Dave Taylor and 
Rex Kennison proved that 
they could fill in a position 
with strong support. 

Then on Friday night, the 
Kingsmen rallied to beat a 
tough Pamona-Pitzer squad. 
The CLC team took three 
out of the five matches for 
the win. This gives the team 
a 1-0 record in the crucial 
NAIA district standings. 

Then, last Tuesday night, 
the Kingsmen defeated a 
tough Ambassador squad in 
three games. Ambassador 
came touting a record that 
included the defeat of such 

annual powerhouses as Cal 
Poly Lan Luis Obispo and 
Whittier. After a week and a 
half of practices CLC is look- 
ing sharp with an outstanding 
performance from Steve Car- 

As the season progresses, 
Coach Ward feels that the 
CLC volleyball team will 
improve to their full poten- 
tial. Practice time is critical, 
but it is the one item that 
CLC is short on. Most of the 
NAIA teams have been prac- 
ticing daily since January. 
But Coach Ward feels that 
CLC will be able to beat any 
of those teams on their way 
to the National playoffs. 

Starting members for CLC 
include Dave Blessing, Steve 
Carmichael, Cary Hegg, Kev- 
in McKenzie, Scot Sorensen 
and Dave Taylor. Strong 
freshman players such as Rex 
Kennison and Rick Moren 
will add to the strength of 
this year's squad as well as 
future years. 

As to date, Coach Ward 
is very pleased with theteam's 
performance. He is looking 
forward to an undeafeated 
NAIA season as with last 
year's team. With action like 
this last week's games, the 
coaches expectations can do 
nothing but come true.

Senate bypasses constitution, authorizes contract negotiations 

Spring Concert decision still in question 

By Patti Behn and Tom 

The ASCLC Senate, in an 
unprecedented action, by- 
passed its constitution and 
approved $5000 in an at- 
tempt to bring the rock band 
'FirefaN' to the Cal Lutheran 
campus. On Wednesday, 
March 15, Firefall refused

Final LRC 
costs still 
in question 

By Tom Kirkpatrick 

The Board of Regents 
held an open meeting with 
the students last Friday, 
March 10, in the Nelson 
room. The meeting was held 
>u thai any financial mallei s 
could be answered. 

The Regents are the 
governing body of the col- 
lege, having final say on 
matters within the college 
with only the American 
Lutheran Church above 

Members of the Regents 
present were John Wouden- 
berg, Al Swanson, Eric 
Schafer, and Marv Soiland. 
This group comprises the 
Regents finance committee. 
Also present was Regent 
member Craig Kinzer. 

The major issues brought 
up by the students present, 
who totaled about a dozen, 
concerned the financial situ- 
ation of the college at pre- 
sent as compared with last 
years operating deficit, and 
the proposed Learning Re-

Search for 
new dean 

By Alicia Thornton 

The search for the new 
Dean of the College is still 
progressing. President Math- 
ew's ad hoc committee is 
busy finding an additional 
candidate to fill the list. 

The chairman of the 
committee, Dr. Ted Lab- 
renz, said, "No one wants 
to be second choice." This 
is why the committee must 
be so confidential about an- 
nouncing the choices. 

The first five candidates 
are Dr. Lyle Murley-CLC, 
Dr. Jerry Neiss-Kansas, Dr. 
Philip Ouanback-Minneapol- 
is, David Schramm-Oregon, 
and Paul Larsen-Nebraska. 
One of these five has already 
accepted a position some- 
where else. 

The first deadline was 
March 1, for the list of three 
candidates. The next dead- 
line is April 15, when Presi- 

natures opposing the expend- 
iture of the money until the 
students voted on the propo- 
sal was presented. 

Don Myles, junior class 
vice-president, brought the 
petition to the attention of 
the Senate while the issue of 
approving the $5000 was be- 
ing discussed. The petition 
was talked about and the 
point was made that accord- 
ing to Article 7. Section 2 of 
the ASCLC constitution, 
"Upon petition of 10% of 
the student body, legislation 
passed by the Student Senate 
must be placed immediately 
before the student body in 
an election for final approval 
or rejection by a majority of 
those voting. If approved, 
that legislation shall go into 
effect immediately." 

Discussion continued. 

Jim Kunau, sophomore class 
president, then called the 
question (meaning to close 
all discussion and vote imme- 
diately). His motion was 
passed and then the main 
motion on approval of the 
money was voted on and 
passed. The money is to 
come from AWS, the contin- 
gency fund, and the spring 
festival fund. Further funds 
were tentatively expected 
from the Artist/Lecture 

At this point Don Myles 
stood, walked to the table 
where Randy Cooper, presi- 
ding as pro-tern in the ab- 
sence of ASCLC Vice-Presi- 
dent Dave Hagen, sat and 
handed him the petition sta-

Current catches couple 

Swept under road near Barn 

By Carol Solverson 

What started out as a little fun for a CLC couple early 
last Sunday morning nearly turned into a tragedy as two of 
them came close to drowning. 

Taking advantage of and trying to enjoy a little of the rain 
that has been plaguing Southern California for the past few 
weeks, these students, who asked to remain anonymous, 
decided to go out and just have themselves a good time by 
running through and splashing in the many puddles that had 
been created by the recent downpours. They ended up in 
Kingsmen Park, or Kingsmen Lake, as it could have been called 
then. The entire park was covered with water and the drainage 
ditch which runs through the center of the park roared, as the 
waters that flooded it moved swiftly and strongly on. Not realiz- 
ing the strength of the current, these students waded farther 
and farther into the water which was approximately 5 to 6 
feet deep where the ditch hits the road on which the Barn and 
SUB are located. A pipe approximately 4 feet in diameter 
carries the drainage water under this road to the other side 
where the water appears once more and continues on past the

Auto mishap causes injury 

By Alicia Thornton, 

On Tuesday February 28 
at l:38 p.m. a traffic accident 
involving Dr. Richard Adams 
and a local Thousand Oaks 
resident occured at the inter- 
section of Olsen Road and 
Mt. Cfef Blvd. Traffic acci- 
dents happen everyday but 
recently this intersection has 
had several. 

Both of the drivers were 
taken to Los Robles Hospi- 
tal in an ambulance-Dr. 
Adams recievcd a cut equiva- 
lent to 20 stiches on his head 
and the other driver was 
knocked unconscious, 

The accident is still under 
investigation but the other 
driver was cited for failure to 
stop. Three students witnes- 
sed the accident. 

The fact that makes this 
accident different is that a 
blind spot was discovered 
when Dr. Adams went back 
to review the accident. The 
Thousand Oaks office of 
public works is interested in 
this corner because of the re- 
cent increase of accidents.

and suggested that if the

Accreditation report 
received by college 

By Tom Kirkpatrick 

Last September, California Lutheran College began under- 
going the process of reaffirmation of accreditation that all 
institutions accredited by the Western Association of Schools 
and Colleges (WASC) must undergo periodically. 

CLC attacked the process from two points in order to as- 
sure itself of the accreditation. One was a seii-stuuy tne conege 
assigned itself as a task by which it could measure its own 
! M'UJi* p*)i>>ls and >liui Itumingj and decide what areas within 
the Academic structure needed bolstering. 

Secondly, the school would undergo the scrutiny of a visit- 
ing accreditation team who would carefully analyze all facets 
of the campus. 

This team paid its first visit to the college last November 15 
to the 18, to analyze the overall programs of the college and to 
concentrate on the off-campus programs and any steps taken 
to allewate problems brought up by the accreditation commit- 
tee in 7975. Their visit was an open one that included all areas 
of the campus, from talking with the faculty to the students. 
In January they revisited the campus, this time to meet only 
with the administration and off campus faculty. Their visits up 
to this time had concentrated on the campus as a whole, both 
the business and academic ends. At the January meeting, they 
talked solely about the off campus, continuing-education pro- 

The team then returned in February to make their recom- 
mendations as to the reaccreditation of the college. 

They recommended that CLC be put on what they term 
probation until February of 1980. Probation in this case does 
not have the same meaning or connotation that an athletic 
probation would carry. It simply means that the institution 
volved has had recommendations made to it by this committee 
as to how certain areas of its overall program might be im- 
proved, In the meantime the institution retains full accredita- 
tion status. 

According to the college's academic dean, Lyle Murley, 
"Probation is not uncommon." He went on to stress that, 
"Our problem is not probation, it's people's misunderstanding 
of what probation means." 

Since last Friday, the various segments of the college: Re- 
gents, faculty, administration, and students have been apprised 
of the situation with emphasis on the fact that with enough

When Hagen was asked 
whether or not the referen- 
dum vote would have any ef- 
fect on the decision to sign 
the band, Hagen replied, 
"Yes, most definately, if a 
contract is not already 
signed. If a contract has 
been negotiated then we'll do 
all we can to break the con- 
tract if the vote is negative." 

At this time, however, 
due to Firef all's refusal, it 
is unsure whai action will be 
taken. An alternate offer 
was made of Andrew Gold 
for the same price. This of- 
fer would include Gold's own 
back-up band and possibly a 
warm-up band called 'Local 
Talent," previously known as 
'Honk.' Gold had a hit single

Students rally for Cheesewright 

Or. Gordon Cheesewright

By Michaela Crawford 

Dr. Gordon Cheesewright 
English professor, received a 
letter from the Academic 
Dean on March 14 that in- 
formed him that his contract 
had not been renewed for the 
next academic year, 1978- 

This letter was termed a 
"formality" by Dr. Theodore 
Labrenz, chairman of the 
English department. Cheese- 
wright's job performance was 
not an issue but all professors 
must receive notification of 
contract renewal by March 
15, according to the Ameri- 
can Association of University 
Professor's Bulletin (AAUP). 

Cheesewright was hired 
on a one year terminal con- 
tract to replace Dr. Lyle Mur- 
ley who had become the Aca- 
demic Vice-president for a 
one year term. If Murley re- 
turns to the department as a 
professor, the man with the 

least seniority will leave; that 
would be Cheesewright. 
Should Murley be accepted 
as dean at either CLC or any 
other college to which he has 
applied, there will be an o- 
pening. However, the Accre- 
ditation Committee sugges- 
ted that a man with Renais- 
sance background be hired. 

Labrenz will go on sabba- 
tical next fall. To take over 
his classes Cheesewright 
could be retained, classes of- 
fered could be cut, or part 
time teachers could be hired 
for the Freshmen English 

Several of Cheesewright's 
students have formed a stu- 
dent committee requesting 
that he receive any open po- 
sition and be kept at CLC as 
professor. They are appeal- 
ing to the Administration 
and circulating two petitions 
in order to maintain Cheese- 
wright as their professor.

beer kegs 
discussed by 
as incidents

all-college committees: Dave IBlCrCOS©

By Tori Nordin 

The Student Affairs Committee, composed 
of faculty and students, held a meeting on 
February 28. One issue discussed was the in- 
crease in confiscated beer kegs on campus. 
The judiciary process and the disciplinary 
action taken regarding this offense was ques- 

There have been at least three student 
offenders this year which is three times as 
many as previous years when there have been 
one or none. The confiscated kegs are turned 
in to Dean Kragthorpe where they remain. 
The policy regarding the keeping of kegs by 
the Dean is his own interpretation. The 
vendor will not refund the deposit unless the 
original buyer is present. Therefore, the Dean 
is in control ot the kegs. It should be noted 
that on all of the kegs the taps have been 
removed either before they were discovered 
or after they were turned in. Dean Kragthorpe 
believes that it is "a relative configuration of 
circumstances." He feels that it depends upon 
the circumstances to determine what kind of 
disciplinary action should take place. 

As the College Compendium states on the 
College Policy on alcoholic beverages: Posses- 
sion or use of alcoholic beverages on the CLC 
campus is prohibited. Don Mossier, Assistant 
Dean of Student Affairs said, "There is noth- 
ing in the judicial policy that says they will 
be treated different, but as a Student Affairs 

staff, we have lookeJ upon keggers more seri- 
ously than those who are caught drinking 
only a few beers; it is the idea of breaking it 
big." Hossler agrees with the Dean in taking 
the circumstances into consideration. He 
comments, "Ourapproachis more directed to- 
wards certain kinds ot standards not to break 
not to delineate everything that happens." 

In addition to the discussion of the kegs, 
the committee evaluated the judiciary system 
with the possibility of revising the system re- 
garding disciplinary action. In accordance 
with Federal legislation, the school must have 
a Grievance Policy. The policy allows student 
offenders to seek out some source other than 
. the ASB Hearing Board, the President or Dean 
as an arbitrator. If a student feels that he js 
being mistreated due to some kind of preju- 
dice on the part of the authorities, he can de- 
mand alternate action under the Grievance 
Policy. Presently there is no official policy. It 
is being considered by the President and col- 
lege council and is in the process of being 

The next meeting of the Student Affairs 
Committee will be on March 28. The issue on 
the future of the confiscated kegs and disci- 
plinary action will be discussed again with the 
Dean. The next step will be input from the 
student searching for an acceptable solution 
to this growing problem.

The final decision is un- 
clear as of yet. The referen- 
dum scheduled for Thursday, 
March 16, has now been 
changed to an opinion poll, 
because as of Firefall's refus- 
al, there was no longer any 
valid Senate action for the 
referendum to refer back to. 
V.P. Dave Hagen stated that 
although the poll will not be 
constitutipnally binding, it 
will still provide the Senate 
with an idea of the students' 

Hagen has scheduled a 
Senate meeting for Thursday 
night, March 16, at 9:00 pm, 
when the Senate will decide 
on several matters. First, the 
Senate will decide, upon con- 
sidering the outcome of the 
student opinion poll, if they 
will vote to approve a $5000 
concert, and whether or not 
that approval will include the 
proposed Andrew Gold offer. 
If the student poll response is 
negative, the Senate, accor- 
ding to Hagen, would have to 
make the decision whether or 
not lo approve a concert any- 
way: If the Senate votes to 
approve the concert, (regard- 
less of the poll outcome) 
they would also have to 
make a judiciary decision, 
says Hagen, as to whether or 
not a referendum election 
would have to be run after 
this new election, according 
to the constitution. 

The petition's authors feel 
that because of the fact that 
the petition does not refer 
specifically to a certain band, 
it is still viable. It, in fact, 
states-- "We, the undersigned 
members of the ASCLC, ex- 
ercising our constitutional 
right of referendum under 
Art. 7, Sec. 2 of the present 
ASCLC constitution do here- 
by petition that any Senate 
action involving the disburs- 
ment of $5000 for the acqui- 
sition of a band to perform 
on or off campus, be taken 
to an immediate vole of the 
Associated Students of Cal- 
ifornia Lutheran College."

Senate action upsets 
signers of referendum 

By PatTi Behn 

A referendum petition signed by 168 students demai 
student referendum vote on the $5,000 Firefall cone 
proval, was presented at the March 12 ASCLC Senate meeting 
by junior class senator Don Myles. Senate action bypassed the 
referendum petition by giving authority for an agreement to 
be made with the band prior to the student vote scheduled for 
Thursday, March 16. If the student vote is negative on the ref- 
erendum, because of the nature of the legal agreement that 
would be made between the ASCLC and the band, the proba- 
bility of cancellation would be highly unlikely. 

A random polling of students who signed the referendum 
petition found a general feeling of dissatisfaction among those 
students, concerning the Senate action taken. Students com- 
mented -- 

Mark Vanlandingham - "The students had no say-so in what 
was going on. At the same time we were disillusioned on the 
petition as to exactly what We were signing it for. I've follow- 
ed it, so I know what's going on, but the student who had no 
idea of the situation would be misled and not know exactly 
what he or she was signing for. 1 wish they would have broken 
down on the petition where the money was coming from. I 
think it's better that the money comes from different places. 

"It seems to me that they overlooked the concern of a 
good number of the students." * 

Cindy Slee - "l believe that when students take an active 
role in their student government the legitimacy of their inter- 
est should not be ignored. I am for the band. However, I felt 
the controversy was enough to constitute my support'in the 

Cheryl Hanson - "We elect the Senate as our representatives 
but I think they should also respect our wishes when 10% of 
us signed to have a vote. They make all of the decisions for us 
but when we request a vote, they should respect that. I think 
$5,000 is too much to spend for one band, especially with the 
financial state the school is in. There are plenty of bands we 
could get for less money, like at dances, that could satisfy our 
needs just as well as 'Firefall'." 

Clay Salisbury - "There wasn't a heck of a lot said publicly 
If I m going to fork out money for the concert I want to know 
more abouHt. I would be affected, but 1 wouldn't know who 
we were going to get or what was coming about. I knew no 
facts about it at all beforehand. I don't think it's our responsi 
bility to find out where our money is going, it's the school's 
responsibility to let us know what's going on. 

"I think what those particular people want, usually comes 
about irregardless of what the constitution says. I don't think 
they go by it in a lot of decisions, this being one of them If it 
came to a decision between the constitution and their personal 
opinion, their personal opinion would be upheld." 

Kari Johnson - "We vote for them to speak for us - vet 
they don't listen to what we say." 

Shelley Wickstrom - "Article VII, Section 2 'Upon neti 
lion of 10% of the Student Body, legislation passed by the 
student Senate must be placed immediately before the student 
tody in an election for final approval or rejection by a major- 
Hy of those voting.' I did not vote for circus clowns but for re 
sponsible intelligent persons to listen to and to voice mv con 
cerns. Barnum and Bailey here we come." 

Stuart Korshavn - "It's indicative of general student govern 
ment. It s a powerplay arena and quite true to Hobbes" 'Levia 
than . We've granted them power and now we're forced to live 
With our choices; they've gotten power and this is the irrespon- 
stble use of power. Student government has become a self-serv 
ing institution instead of the other-serving institution it was or 
darned to be. I think a responsible student press can do a lot to

Talent show to 
catch the acts 

By Alicia Thornton, 

Dust off your top hat, 
dig out your taps because the 
1978 talent show is coming 
April 28 to the CLC campus. 
The theme of this years show 
is "Caught in the Act!" t 

Auditions for this years 
extravaganza are Tuesday, 
March 28 at 6:30 p.m. in the 
gym. Everyone is encouraged 
and invited to try-out. 

"Rumor holds that this 
will be a big year for the pre- 
mier of new talent. Auditions 
should provide a variety of 
talent to select from," said 
Cindy Saylor, this year's dir- 

Usually the proceeds from 
the annual ASCLC event go 
to Naomi Benson memorial 
Scholarship fund, however, a 
proposal has been made that 
the money go to purchase 
speakers for the gym. 

Final rehearsals will not 
begin until April 25, 

Copyright law 

By Karen Hass, 

The Congress of the Unit- 
ed States passed a new copy- 
right law which went into ef- 
fect January I, 1978. This law 
modernizes the old law of 
1909 which is a guarantee that 
composers and authors would 
get paid some sort of royalty 
for the use of their works. 
Now, all non-profit organiza- 
tions that use copyrighted 
material such as CLC are re- 
quired lo pay royalties to 
the composers. This includes 
school marching bands, 
school concert halls, back- 
ground music systems in 
cafeterias, and school radio 

Composers have seen it 
unfair that colleges can af- 
ford to pay $2000 for secur- 
ity at a musical performance, 
but do not pay anything to 
the composer of the music 
used in the performance. 

The amount of the roy- 
alty payments is not certain 
as yet, but ASCAP and BMI 
realize that non-profit organ- 
izations do not recieve much 
of a budget. A blanket fee 
paid by a college for instance, 
seems the most feasible at 
this time. 

River washes couple up 

(Continued from page 1)- 

football field towards the stables. . . 

One of these students, not realizing how close she was to 
this pipe, apparently walked right into its path and could feel 
herself being pulled under by the pipe's suction, as well as 
being pushed by the strength of current moving towards the 
pipe. Her cries for help were apparently not heard at first by 
the others that were with her. A moment went by before one 
of the students realized that she had disappeared in the water 
and was not coming back up. So he then dove down to see if 
he could find her. Before he really had a chance to find her, he 
was caught himself by the suction of the pipe, which he had 
not known was there, and was swept in. He grabbed on to the 
edges of the pipe, but was not able to hold on for long. Figur- 
ing he would not be able to pull himself back out of the pipe, 
he let go and proceeded to make his journey through it. Since 
he had not known that his pipe was there, he had no idea how 
long it was or where he'd end up, if he was still alive when he 
did so. So he just held his breath and prayed real hard! When 
what seemed to him like an eternity had passed, much to his 
happiness, the pipe ended. After he was all the way out he 
looked around and was surprised to find that the other 
student he was trying to find was not there. The question, 
"Where could she be?" kept running through his mind. Appar- 
ently she had either gotten stuck on the side of the pipe or was 
above him while he went through, for just a few seconds later 
she appeared at the pipe opening. She floated on face down 
until he grabbed her by the middle and carried her into the 
nearby iccplant where they sat for awhile in shock, recovering 
from their traumatic experience. 

Meanwhile, two other students that they had been with, 
having been farther away from the pipe, had not realized for 
a moment or so that their friends had disappeared. When 
they finally did realize this, and that their friends were not 
returning from the water, panic crossed their minds. Thoughts 
of their friends drowning right there in front of them made it 
an even scarier feeling. A few seconds seemed like minutes, 
when suddenly they heard voices coming from the other side 
of the road. They ran over as fast as they could and, much to 
their relief, found the voices that they had heard to be those 
f their friends, who were both a little shaken, and, excepting 
all right. He had received a cut 


under his right eye and a swollen eyebrow and she had a bump 
on the back of her head. Both of their injuries were the result 
of hitting the inside walls of the pipe on their way through it. 
They were just lucky to be alive, let alone receive such minor 

Talking about the incident a few days later, these two stu- 
dents described their "trip" as one of the "harriest" experi- 
ences of their lives. Many feelings had crossed their minds 
during their experience and they both recalled having thought 
that they were going to die and that they didn't want it to be 
in this way. They were especially thankful to have lived 
through such an experience.

LRC costs unknown 

(Continued from page 1} 

When asked to comment 
on the possibility of the 
school running at a deficit 
for the second year in a 
row. Regent member Marv 
Soiland referred the ques- 
tion to CLC's dean of busi- 
ness, D. Buchanan. 

Buchanan replied that 
the college is projecting a 
zero balance for the year. 
However, this is contingent 
upon unrestricted gifts 
meeting what they were 
projected to be. Presently 
monies collected from un- 
restricted gifts are behind 
last year's pace due to the 
fact thai most funds being 
donated to the college are 
. being restricted for use on 
the LRC. 

The fund for the LRC 
presently contains better 
than one and a half million 
dollars in pledges but Wou- 
denberg pointed out that 
little of this has been real- 
ized as cash in the hand. 

The meeting then turned 
to a discussion of the LRC 
and its financial status. The 
original estimate given last 
October on the cost of the 
project, including landscap- 
ing and the depression or 
Olsen Road, was set at 3.7 
million dollars. However, 
because of the delay in 
construction, new bids must 
be obtained from the sub- 

contractors and There is no 
new projection. Any cost 
increases will be offset by 
the accrual of no interest 
over this period of time, a 
savings of $100,000 on the 
Olsen Road project due to 
recent negotiations with the 
city, and the agreement of 
the city to forego the in- 
stallation of an expensive 
sprinkler system in the new 

There are several possible 
problems that might crop 
up which could drastically 
affect the costs. Beginning 
July 1, a new state code 
requiring extra insulation 
and other features to save 
energy will take effect. The 
costs to the college of 
meeting these new restric- 
tions could total as much as 

If a building permit can 
be acquired from the city of 
Thousand Oaks planning 
commission that is dated 
before July 1, then this will 
not be a factor. However, 
the requirements for obtain- 
ing the building permit in- 
clude the stipulation that all 
grading will be done before- 
hand. The cost of this would 
be $40,000. 

The question was asked 
if this would be completed 
in time to beat the July 
deadline but no answer 
could be given. 

Students dismayed 
by ASCLC action 

(Continued from page 2) 

Karen Newmyer - "I just can't believe that they really are 
ignoring something that so clearly reveals a concern held by a 
significant amount of the student body. I didn't sign that peti- 
tion for the hell of it." 

Mike Harrison - "After discussing this concert issue (which 
is vital to the existance of the world) with various people on 
campus, I can only come to the conclusion that our so-called 
'student leaders' (his quotes) are trying to play 'politician' in- 
stead of dealing with anything that is essential. It irritates me 
that people 'play' with significant amounts of money that be- 
long to a body of students. It would be my wish that the peo- 
ple responsible for the spending of our funds would come out 
of their little fantasy (Joe Politician) and concern themselves 
with more important issues. If they feel they must persist in 
this triviaj 'politicking', they should at least show some respon- 
sibility to their constituency (the students), especially when 
they're playing with significant sums of money. Sure, I'm 

Carol Solverson - "I think it's wrong. I think the concert 
money could be used in better ways. I'd like to see more dan- 
ces rather than use it all for one band. I'm not that familiar 
with 'Firefall' anyway." 

Julie Wulff-"l think that for that much money, we should've 
had the right to vote. There was student interest and they 
knew that. They just kind of overstepped their power." 

Steve Houghton - "I think they shouldn't have gone ahead 
and get the band, i think they should have listened to the stu- 
dents first." 

Marty Crawford, the freshman senator who co-authored the 
petition with Don Myles, had no comment on what happened 
at the Senate meeting because she was not in attendance, but 
she did comment on the petition's purpose. "Our purpose was 
simply to allow the students to have a decision. As far as rea- 
sons 1 supported it in the first place, I feel trTat having been 
elected an officer means I have a responsibility to represent 
my constituency, which doesn'l mean making decisions unilat-

other choice. Before that, it would've been presenting a pe-

of a full-time Ph.D. with 
specialization in the Admin- 
istration of Justice to serv-

undergraduate programs. 

3) The decision to begin, 
a Nursing Program of high 
quality should be carefully 
reviewed in the light of the 
demand this program will 
have in relation to other 
staffing and resource priori- 
ties of the college. 

4) CLC should seriously 
consider reducing the 
breadth of the curriculum 
and course offerings to alle- 
viate the overextension of 
many faculty. 

5) CLC should review, 
revise, and clarify its faculty 
promotion and tenure 

6) Financial planning for 
future CLC budgets should 
explicitly provide for salary 
improvement and a high 
priority should be placed on 
this objective.

should be revised to provide 
for (a) appropriate outside

itself to by June are numbers one and seven which state: 

(1) CLC should give attention to integrating off-campus 
programs into its basic statement of objectives and should take 
steps to see that such programs do, in fact, serve these objectives. 

(7) The continuing education courses of CLC should be re- 
vised to provide for (a) appropriate outside assignments pro- 
portionate to amount of academic credit given for each course 
(b) Institutional control of the curriculum, including prior 
determination of detailed course outline by CLC staff; and (c) 
direct administration of all financial aspects of the program, 
including the direct receipt and disbursement of all program 

The wheels have been set in motion to alleviate and act on 
these by June. A program has been devised breaking them 
down so that they may be acted upon. This includes the in- 
volvement of faculty, giving them full knowledge of the exist- 
ing programs that revolve around continuing education, which 
includes a permanant committee already brought into exist- 
ence that will oversee the continuing education program. 
Other areas concerned are tightening down the process by 
which these outside students are reached; establishment of full 
accounting procedures for all aspects of the program; compen- 
sation for local assistants in the continuing education program 
by basing payments on a fixed contract basis; bringing the 
number of courses offered down; and beefing up the amount 
of time spent in each course and the outside work assigned. 

When informed Tuesday of steps alreadv taken, Ms. Ander- 
son agreed that these concerns" spoke very directly to the 

According to Mathews, "Through continued self-study and 
implementation we can make the necessary changes." 

A progress report from a special faculty task force on all 
developments will be given to the Board of Regents by April 17. 

For each of the recommendation an administrator has been 
assigned to oversee the process of meeting it, along with board 
and faculty committees. According to Murley, "We must have 
the faculty and students aware so that they can help. Hopeful- 
ly we can block the misconstruing from being too negative." 

Retreat to focus on society 

There will be a retreat on April 7th and 8th focusing on 
"Working for a Just and Sustainable Society." The American 
Lutheran Church, through Pastor George Johnson of Long 
Beach, is supporting this effort to call attention to world hun- 
ger, expanding population, diminishing resources, and all of 
the problems of justice and injustice, war and peace, which 
stem from them. 

C. Dean Fruedenberger of the School of Theology at Clare- 
monC, an internationally recognized authority "m this Tield, will 
be a resource person for the retreat. 

The Task Force on Values Is seeking interested students 
who would like to attend the retreat and become a part of the 
on-going process. The plan is to have 1 0-1 5 faculty and admin- 
istrators, and 30-40 students, spread across the academic 
disciplines which relate most directly to the problems identi- 
fied above. 

If you would like to apply to participate, please contact 
Dean Kragthorpe's office or Pastor Swanson. 

All costs will be covered by the American Lutheran Church 
and its co-sponsors, so there will be no expense to the stu- 
dents. The retreat will be at a beautiful setting in Santa Bar- 
bara, and will begin with Friday dinner and end on Saturday 
night. Only people who can attend the whole retreat will be 
selected from the list of those who apply.

TV staff obsolete 

By Alicia Thornton 

As of May 31, 1978, 
CLC's television studio will 
no longer have a staff mem- 
ber. This is due to the ad- 
vanced state of disrepair of 
the equipment in the studio. 

The elimination of the 
staff member, Jay Libby, is 
because of two reasons. 
One is that, to work effici- 
ently, an appropriate 
amount of equipment is 
needed to support the ne- 
cessity of a staff member. 
During early last November, 
there was a major bieak- 
down of equipment in the 
studio. It could be repaired 
but the best solution was to 
replace it. 

The second reason is 
that for undergraduates to

The committee is back 
to the initial problems of 
choosing applicants to inter- 
view and then making ap- 
pointments with them. Their 
meeting on Monday night 
hopefully made some pro- 
gress. They had almost com- 
pleted the process once and 
now begin again. 

When the committee de- 
cides on the final candidates 
then it is President Mathews' 
decision. He may ask advice 
of the committee, but in 
the end it is his choice. 

Dean Lyle Murley was 
asked if he will return to 
teaching, if not selected and 
he said, "I will return to full 
time instead of part time 

learn the basic

recorder, the staff person is 
not needed. The drama de- 
partment is to teach the 
students through classes like 
the lab class. 

This year the television 
studio was providing a serv- 
ice to the school by video 
taping student projects, 
football games and other re- 
lated activities. This is the 
first part of the program 
that is being cut. 

Dean Murley has recom- 
mended that the classes be 
maintained and that we 
"need time to write tor 
grants and other things to 
improve the studio," He 
also stressed that the TV

Take a step into the past 

By Jane Lee, 

Going back in history 
may not be as difficult as it 
sounds. Fifteen representa- 
tives from California Luther- 
an College, led by art instruc- 
tor Jerry Slattum, had a taste 
of the past during a three 
week Interim tour of Peru 
and Bolivia. Being the first 
CLC group to visit South A- 
merica, this last frontier of 
the traveler was a new ex- 
perience for all participants. 

Only a few hours bus ride 
from the modern metropolis 
of Lima, we found ourselves 
amidst natives living the same 
way their ancestors did 500 
years before. The quaint vil- 
lage of Huaraz provided our 
home base as we explored 
the ancient ruins of the snow- 
capped Andes. 

Peru's highest mountain, 
Huascaran of the Cordillera 
Blanca (White Range), tow- 
ered over us as we rode in 
the collectivo (mini bus) to 
the site of Chavin. Rural 
families decorated the ver- 
dant valleys as they farmed 
maize and fished in the 
mountain streams. 

curious about our lives 
and our modern distant land. 
A quick stop for an "lnca 
Kola" and a pink banana and 
we were off down the dirt 
road to Huaraz. 

There is no such thing as 
early morning solitude in 
Huaraz. Walking out the door 
of the Hotel Barcelona at 6:30 
a m . was like walking into a 
carnival. Quechua Indians 
carrying huge bundles and in- 
fants on their backs were 
briskly walking to market to 
start their full day of work. 
Street vendors selling fruit 
drinks and breakfast rolls 
offered friendly greetings 
t familiar faces. 

CLC students quickly 
learned how to bargain for 
goods. After all, why pay 10 
cents for 2 ripe avocados 
w hen you can pay 5 down 
the street? Hand made baskets 
and leather goods were quite 

work day. Even the sight of 
a rare North American visi- 
tor did not distract the chil- 
dren from their final game of 
kickball on the dusty street. 

The next two weeks 
brought many experiences 
that were just as colorful as 
the days in Huaraz. We visit- 
ed many ruins and saw beaut- 
iful beaches on our trip back 
to Lima. After seeing mu- 
seums and churches in Lima, 
we made our way inland by 
airplane to Cuzco and visited 
Machu Picchu (The lost city 
of the Incas). Climbing the 
steep mountain of Huayna- 
picchu gave us a spectacular 
view of the ancient city nestl- 
ed into the green mountain.

By Tori Nordin, 

Folk dancing, original costumes, crafts to make and for sale, 
and the experiencing and appreciating the Scandinavian cul- 
ture were among the activities that made the 5th Annual 
Scandinavian Day a most festive occasion. An estimated thou- 
sand people of various ages spent the day observing the ex- 
hibits, book display, slide presentation, and paintings while 
munching on krumkakers and rosettes for those who were wil- 
ling to wait to see how they were prepared. Youngsters were 
kept occupied and entertained by the Troll drawing contest 
and the presentation of the Three Billy Goats Gruff enacted 
in Kingsmen Park by several members of CLC Drama Depart- 

Two of the Lodges that were represented were the Oak- 
leaf Vasa Order of America, located in Thousand Oaks, and 
the Sons of Norway. These lodges are part of the American 
Scandinavian Foundation that are represented throughout 
Sweden and Canada as well as the United States. The object 
of these organizations are to keep up the Scandinavian culture. 
The Oakleaf Vasa Lodge provided the flags used during the 
Presentation of the Flags and National Anthem. 

The Vasa Youth Folk Dancers of Southern California, 
coming from all over California, are a culmination of indivi- 
duals ages fourteen to eighteen interested in exhibiting their 
"culture through the traditional dances. Wearing original cos- 
tumes from different providences of Sweden. They danced to 
live music and demonstrated several different Scandinavian folk 
dances in the Gym. Siv Shosted was the organizer of the flag 
ceremony and folk dancers and was one of the many who 
spent hours preparing for the day. From Thousand Oaks, Mrs. 
Mary Ann Kanyon, a member of the Oakleaf Vasa Lodge who 
was a fromer dancer in the Vasa Youth group now has children 
involved in the program. Her parents came from Sweden and 
although she has never been there she enjoys keeping up the 

Elna Larsen, when she is not in her craft shop in Solvang, 
California, makes lace. She was born in Denmark. Her cousin 
who was a teacher of making lace taught her how when 
she was young and she has been doing it ever since. She says 
that it is great for the nerves. In Denmark they recommend it 
for those on the verge of a nervous breakdown. She says that 
she goes back to Denmark every chance she has but admits 
that it is not enough. 

Bill Hamm, Assistant to the President and President of 
Scandinavian Day, worked with a committee composed of 
students and members of the faculty and community in plan- 
ning the day. He commented that, "most people felt that it 
was the most festive Scandinavian Day ever and with the most 
people." He adds, "It is a way for us to gain greater apprecia- 
tion for the Scandinavian culture, many individuals associated 
with the college have Scandinavian backgournd, and finally it 
is a chance to appreciate our diversity as a community." The 
committee is considering organizing a college Scandinavian 
folk dancing group. 

The most prominent people exhibiting their talents and 
heritage were of various Scandinavian countries. The countries 
represented were Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway and 
Sweden. Most of them either came from these countries or are 
closely related to those that have. But all of them are so inter- 
ested in it that they become a part of the experience and enjoy 
celebrating the culture while sharing it with others. At the same 
time it makes them feel closer to home. It was a day filled 
with culture and festivity appreciated by all.

No credit for 

By T. Herhold 

The CLC P.E. Depart- 
ment's policy of not count- 
ing credits received for inter- 
collegiate sports towards the 
127 needed for graduation is 
not only outdated, but detri- 
mental as well. 

Presently, one semester of 
Physical Education 100 and 
two semesters of Physical 
Education activities (i.e. ten- 
nis, swimming, volleyball, 
etc.) are needed to graduate 
from CLC, and no more than 
two semester credits of P.E. 
activities may be counted 
towards the 127 credits re- 
quired for graduation. But 
these activities don't include 
intercollegiate sports. The 
single credit received for an 
intercollegiate sports affects 
the athlete's grade-point- 
average only. This, of course, 
doesn't include P.E. majors. 

Two years ago, the depart- 
ment chairpeople voted 
down a proposal to change 
this. The P.E. Department's 
explanation is that CLC's 
present policy is desinged> to 
give the athlete a "total 
learn in ing experience"; one 
that will provide background 
in a "life-long" sport outside 
of competitive intercollegiate 

This sounds reasonable 
enough, but what about the 
athlete who plays two or 
three sports and is dedicating 
a lot of time to the intercol- 
legiate program? Shouldn't 
they receive some credit for 
this? Or what about the 
athlete who is already playing 
in a "life-long" sport, such as 
tennis or golf. Is it fair to 
force them to take another

It Is the opinion of this editorial staff inai 
student government in the issue of bringing a 
major band to CLC, for whatever price, over- 
stepped its constitutional bounds in giving 
authorization for a contractual obligation be- 
fore the students, after having rightfully peti- 
tioned for their privelege to vote, could exer- 
cise that right. The fact that the band in 
question at the time has since refused to ac- 
cept the offer in no way dims the alarming 
fact that our student representatives, through 
ignorance of their responsibilities or outright 
defiance of the constitution, swept past the 
objections signified by 168 signatures 
petition and instead voted upon th'

o have any say in the future as to 
fish our student government to 
fees, we must find a way to con- 
front what appears to be callousness to many 
students' wishes and deal with it. Should we 
allow it to continue then we will be as much 
to blame as those we have elected. 

In the end, in this somewhat ponderous set 
of checks and balances, as our governmeni's 
constituency, we provide the final check on 
ail that goes on. If we do not see to it that 
this final check is made and, more important- 
ly, adhered to, then we will only be able to 
look at ourselves when next our representa- 
tives overstep their bounds. To take action 
now, and let those who are making these de-

be a START in the right direction. 

P.E. activity only because it 
will provide a "total learning 
experience"? No state-sup- 
ported school in the country 
has such a policy. 

It seems to me that CLC's 
intercollegiate program does 
not provide enough incentive 
to the athlete as it is (Obvi- 
ously, the athletic facilities 
here at CLC leave a lot to be 
desired.), and that the stu- 
dent-athlete needs all the 
motivation and help he or 
she can get. Intercollegiate 
sports take a lot of time and 
dedication. The athlete is 
constantly called upon to 
miss his or her classes and 
expected to give his or her all 
for the school. I feel that if 
the department chairpeople 
want to upgrade intercollegi- 
ate athletics here at CLC and 
reward the athlete as well, 
that the present policy of not 
rewarding credits for inter- 
collegiate sports ought to be 

CLC goes to thedogs 

By Maia Siewertsen 

I have heard that surprises are fun, but I think an exception 
can be made for the disaster that CLC allowed on campus last ' 

They came from out of nowhere - Enormous motorhomes 
swarmed the parking lot in front of the library and administra- 
tion building for a massive dog show. Can you believe it? A 
DOG SHOW! And the students had no forehand knowledge of 
it! Thousands of yapping, yipping dogs were penned outside 
those motorhomes. Had the contestants remained confined to 
that parking lot, the discomfort of teaming throngs 'of dogs 
and people could have been borne, but those "guests" broaden- 
ed their horizons to the Mt. Clef dorm parking lot - taking up 
student parking space - four normal car spaces per each motor- 
home - spaces which CLC drivers pay $15 a year to park in. Not 
only were the strangers blatant, they were rude. One student 
parked her car in a spot Saturday and left Thousand Oaks only 
to return Sunday and findhervehiclesurroundedby two motor- 
homes whose drivers refused to move because they had setup 
extension "porches" - over HER car. Another driver parked 
her Volkswagon smack in the way of the entrance to the Mt. 
Clef Foyer, between the "Maintenance Only" slots, in the red. 
Several students noticed her do this and informed her that this

Let's get one thing clear: students come first around here 
We (or our parents, and we are their representatives) pay room 
and tuition, which thereby goes to pay the salaries, no doubt, 
of those who brought this atrocity on campus. These obtuse 
and insensitive people seemed unaware of those rights and 
acted as if they had rented the college for a day. If they were 
given this type of freedom outright, a serious infringement has 
happened to students' rights to freedom of movement and pri- 
vacy. A student would have gotten a $5.00 ticket for parking 
in the maintenance slots or fire lanes. I saw no tickets issued to 
any of those cars. Weren't these people informed of where 
they could park and where they couldn't? These people also 
conquered the McAfee apartment parking lot. As a resident of 
those apartments, 1 can tell you that there is ONE parking slot 
per apartment, whether one or two people live there. I have a 
roommate and if she hadn't been gone that weekend, I would've 
had to park in Oxnard. 

I don't know how much money CLC raked in by having 
this "gala festival, but I'm not sure if it was worth our 

Letters to the Editor 

Concert Editorial 

Dear Editor, 

I would like to take 
this opportunity to reply to 
some of the comments made 
in the "ECHO Opinion" 
article entitles, "Take a sec- 
ond look" (March 10). 

First of all, Peter Crane 
was asked to be chairman of 
the ASCLC Concert Com- 
mittee which would look 
into the feasibility of a 
"name band" concert at 
CLC (An. article explaining 
Crane's complete study ap- 
peared in the ECHO on 
February 24 under the title 
"Name band concert alter- 
natives suggested".) Crane 
presented three alternatives 
to the ASCLC Senate: pro- 
mote a concert ourselves, 
co-promote the concert 
with a promoter, or buy i 
band outright for CLC stu- 
dents only. 

The Senate asked Crane 
to look into the possibilitfes 
for a co-promoted cone**. 
However, 1 felt thai a con- 
cert for CLC students only 
would probably be preferred 
by the students. Therefore, 
I secured an offer for the 
band "Firefall". This offer, 
at the time, would include 
a warm-up band, a complete 
P.A. system, and "Firefall" 
for the total sum of $5,000. 

Last year, when Craig 
Kinzer and Peter Crane 
were competing for the 
office of ASCLC President, 
both of the candidates ex- 
pressed a desire to have a 
"name band" concert here 
on campus. At the time, 
that idea generated a lot of 
excitement, so the idea was 

Unfortunately, Crane 
had not been able to come 
up with anything concrete 
that the Senate was interest- 
ed in so I started looking. 
(Since I have booked all the 
bands that have played here 
at CLC for this year, includ- 
ing the band for "Renew 
the Lu," I felt that I was 
qualified to look into it.) 

When Crane presented 
the results of his feasibility 
study to the Senate on Sun- 
day, February 12, he added 
some approximate costs on 
buying bands outright. My 
"Firefall" proposal was in- 
cluded in that list. Last 
week, I pointed out to the 
Senate that time was grow- 
ing' short and that Crane 
still had not offered a final 
proposal. Meanwhile, the 
offer I received on "Firefall" 
still stood. 

My objective in pointing 
out these facts was not to 
get the proposal "rammed 
through at the tail end of a 
senate meeting when all 
anybody is thinking aboul 
's going home..." I resent 
this charge and would like 
to reiterate that it is NOT 

Many articles have it* 

peared in the ECHO but 
very few students have taken 
the time to attend a Senate 
meeting to get all the facts. 
Is this the fault of student 

Now a referendum peti- 
tion has been circulated to 
put the "name band" con- 
cert proposal to a school- 
wide vote. For this referen- 
dum to be held now, by 
waiting for the vote, we 
may end up losing the offer 
due .to a time delay. Is this 
in the best interest of the 
students? I believe that, if 
the referendum vote were 
held, it would pass. That 
affirmative vote would do 
no good if the offer had 
been withdrawn due to the 
time delay. 

At the time of this writ- 
ing (Tuesday, March 14), the 
ASCLC "name band" con- 
cert fate is uncertain. I re- 
ceived the "Firefall" offer 
almost six weeks ago. Now, 
due to the impending release 
of their third album and 
commitments back East 
that were recently finalized, 
it is questionable whether 
o* not "Firefall" will now 
accept the offer. I am hop- 
ing that they will be willing 
to do the concert on our 
Spring Day (which will be 
styled after "Renew the 
Lu"); I've done all I can -- 
it's now up 10 the students. 
I welcome any and all 
comments concerning this 
project. My number is: 
492-6845 and I live in 
Thompson 114 -- please let 
me know YOUR feelings!!!

Student Supports 
Dr. Cheesewright 

. Dear Editor, 

In a time when people 
are being graduated from 
high schools who cannot 
read or write, a heavy em- 
phasis is being placed on the 
ability to communicate 
with others. The written' 
word is, at this time, a major 
concern for educators. There 
is, in the English Depart- 
ment of California Lutheran 
College, a teacher who 
embarks upon the task of 
teaching with an ability and 
zeal that this author has 
rarely seen. This teacher in- 
stills in the student a will to 
learn, and to constantly im- 
prove one's writing abilities. 

Dr. Gordon Cheesewright 
is a top quality educator. 
His ability to communicate 
with students in a manner 
which is easily comprehensi- 
ble to them is a valuable 
talent. This talent should 
not be lost because of petty 
politics. As a student I have 
seen too many good teachers 
let go, at the expense of the 

Dr. Cheesewright has 
given some of his enthusi- 
asm for English to this auth- 
or. His style is such that the

student wants to learn more, 
but he does not stop there. 
Dr. Cheesewright also has 
the ability to further the 
students' knowledge of 
English. In discussion of 
literary forms, he stimulates 
a meaningful discussion of 
the work, not leading stu- 
dents to a blind alley or 

From a student's point 
of view, I feel that Dr. Gor- 
don Cheesewright is an in- 
dispensable and vital portion 
of the English Department. 

I feel that it would be to 
the detriment of the student- 
at-large to lose such a vital, 
capable teacher as Dr. 

I would hope that this 
letter would cause a reexam- 
ination of the possibility 
of losing a vital educational 
asset that Dr. Cheesewright 
has proven to be.

Dating Lack 
at CLC 

lieve me, men, we understand. 
If a woman just wants you 
for your money she probably 
isn't worth your time. Sure, 
dinner and/or a movie is 
great, when you can afford 
it, but there are other things 
to do that are free. We have 
mountains to climb, if you're 
the outdoor type; picnics can 
be fun, inexpensive, and a 
good way to get to know a 
person; or you can ask some- 
one to go to the movies we 
have in the Gym. The Barn 
is also a fun place to go, 
food is inexpensive, and 
games free to play. If these 
don't appeal to you, I'm sure 
you can tind something to do. 

2) Lack of Interest - 
This, of course, is a possibili- 
ty, but I can't believe ihat 
the men here aren't interested 
in at least one person, and 
want to get to know them 

3) Fear and Misunder- 
standing -- This is the major 
problem. The men of CLC 
misinterpret our actions and 
that has caused the ruination 
of many possible friendships. 
If a woman pays any attention 
to a man around CLC, even 
if her intentions are only 
friendly, it is taken the wrung 
way. Soon he has ideas in 
his head that she's in love 
with him and if he doesn't 
ignore her, she may trap him. 
Sorry men, it just isn't like 
that. Al least nol in the 
majority of cases. Most of us 

just < 
the men

What's so 
a serious n 
nothing 1 

Dear Editor, 

As hard as it is to believe, 
fear is a common emotion in 
quite a few CLC men. The 
reason for this is unknown - 
at least it is for the women of 

Yes, men, you've got us 
baffled! As much as we hate 
to admit it, we spend a major- 
ity of time trying to figure 
you out but to no avail, 
just what is it that makes 
you act the way you do? 
Why are you afraid of us? 

I've talked to a number of 
CLCwomen and they've come 
to the conclusion that the 
men's fear is caused by a bad 
case of misunderstanding. 
The men just don't know 
what's going on around here. 
Last year when I was a 
freshman, a senior said to my 
roommates and me, "Don't 
be too disappointed if you 
aren't asked out because for 
some reason the guys here 
just don't date often." 

My question is "What is 
stopping the students from 
dating regularly?" Over the 
past months my friends and I 
have discussed this problem 
and came up with a few 

1) Lack of money -- This 
is a very common plight a- 
mong college students. Bel- 

be friends v 
here, if something 
lops, then great, 
bad about having 
^lationship? There's 
lore beautiful than 
finding out about yourself 
through other people-friends 
and lovers! If you find out 
someone does like you, you 
should be happy. Someone 
has taken the time to get to 
know you, they enjoy your 
company, they like what you 
are. Ignoring someone be- 
cause you are afraid they are 
'after' you is juvenile! If it 
bothers you for some reason, 
you owe it to that person to 
explain how you feel. Ignor- 
ing a problem has never 
solved it. 

Next time you have an 
opportunity to get to know 
someone -- DO IT! Take a 
chance. Even if things don't 
work out, you learn from the 
experience. You have to try. 
Men, don't be afraid to 
get to know us. Together we 
can overcome the communi- 
cation barriers that divide us.

Tennis team 
bitten again 

The CLC Mens tennis 
team felt the bite of the 
University of Redlands on 
Monday. The perennial 
power of the District, Red- 
lands, defeated the Kings- 
men 9-0 in an away match. 

Number one for the 
Kingsmen, David Ikola, 
played tough, just as he has 
all year. Hari Rahimi, one 
of the best players in the 
District was victorious in a 
close 7-5, 6-4 match. Rich- 
ard Bier played very com- 
petitively in a marathon 
contest. Bier went down to 
defeat 6-2, 4-6, 5-7. Being 
down 5-2 in the third set, 
Bier fought back against 
four consecutive match 
points, only to make the 
score closer in the final set. 

Head coach, Grant 
Smith, said, "We are im- 
proving with every match 
we play." Smith also added, 
"Our competition is very 
strong." The netters seem 
to play tough but fall short 
by losing close individual

resigns as 

By Pete Sandberg, 

At the Wrestling/Basket- 
ball banquet, head wrestling 
coach Buck Deadrich public- 
ly announced that he was 
terminating his duties at CLC. 
After three years of non- 
cooperation from the Athle- 
tic Director, Buck decided to 
throw in the towel. Truly a 
first for this Olympic and 
World-class wrestler. 

When Buck Deadrich took 
over at CLC as head wrest- 
ling coach in 1975, the wrest- 
ling team was in eighth place 
in theNAIA District III. The 
Kingsmen placed third that 
year and second the follow- 
ing year. This year, the CLC 
matmen placed first in the 
Kim Coddington Tourna- 
ment which replaced the old 
District III Tournament. 
Quite an accomplishment for 
any coach in any sport. Now 
the administration is letting 
this coach go. The realization 
will come too late that the 
really big one got away. 

Buck's entire situation 
was a struggle. Along with 
being head wrestling coach, 
he was Director of Publica- 
tions. One can plainly see 
that these two jobs create 
conflicts with each other and 
are not the best bed partners. 
But for the last three years, 
he has won this head-on fight. 
Yet with little support and 
even some intentially placed 
obstucles by the Athletic Dir- 
ector of CLC, Buck Deadrich 
could not win. 

Coach Deadrich is a high- 
ly personable coach and per- 
son. He is truly interested in 
all of his people and this can 
be seen in his athletes. CLC 
will be the loser in Buck's ab- 
sence and in lost athletes, for 
one can be sure that many of 
his wrestlers will follow him 
wherever he decides to go. 

Buck Deadrich had a good 
thing going. Too bad that 
things didn't go his way. He 
will be missed, but one 
only wish him all the luck in 
the world as he broadens his

The Kingsmen , 
team continued its .... 
tradition with victories over 
Ambassador and Pierce Col- 
leges last week. This puts CLC 
with an undefeated NAIA 
competition record and a 3-1 
overall slate. 

Ambassador College was 
the first team to fall victim 
to the Kingsmen. The match 
— held in the CLC gym on 
night. The Cal Lu- 
im dropped the first 
t came back to win 
three straight and take the 
match with three out of four 
games won. Ambassador has 
a tough squad and the match- 
es were tight throughout, but 
CLC played consistantly the' 
entire game. 

Then, on Thursday night, 
the Kingsmen displayed tre- 
mendous poise under pressure 
as they subdued Pierce three 
games out of five. This game 
was the tougher of the two as 
it went to the five game limit 
to determine the match win- 

"Dave Blessing and Steve 
Carmichael proved to be key 
players," commented Coach 
Bob Ward. Both are excellent 

players who dominate their 
inside positions. 

Cary Hegg and Kevin 
McKenzie compliment Bles- 
sing and Carmichael as they 
occupy outside hitter posi- 
tions. Scot Sorensen and 
Dave Taylor are the key de- 
fensive players who occupy 
outside hitter positions. 

On Friday, the Kingsmen 
take on Hancock College, 
also at CLC. The contest 
promises to be an exciting 
display of Kingsmen volley-

Although defeated, the Regals displayed excellent team 
spirit and a variety of athletic skill at their dual meet against 
Ambassador College on March 10, 1978. 

Nicky Oliver and Julie Wulff were the top athletes at the I 
meet. This was due not only to their speed, but also to their 
perserverance. Both Oliver and Wulff were entered in four 
events which included running as well as long jumping. Oliver 
placed second in the 440 yard dash, third in the 220 yard dash

(her time was 

in the long jump. This 

jump for this year. 

Wulff placed first in the mile run and 880 yard run with 
times of 5:35 and 2:31.3 respectively. She placed second in 
the two mile run behind Laurie Hagopian of CLC. Hagopian's 
winning time for the event was 11:52.2. She also placed sec- 
ond in the mile run. 

The meet was interesting in that there were a number of 
athletes out for the first time and others were participating in 
events out of their usual fields. The high jump and the 440 
yard relay were two of the "unusual" fields. 

In her first meet for the year, Sandi Enriquez placed second 
in the high |ump clearing 4 ft 6 in. Two novices, Carol Cum- ; 
mmgs and Laurie Hagopian, placed third and fourth, thus gain- 
ing an extra point fot the Regals. Cummings also ran the 100 
yard hurdles finishing second with a time of 16.3. 

The Regals had not acquired a 440 yard relay team until 
Embassador. But, for three points, Cummings 
.-.ii, v/uver and Enriques decided to give it a try. Their time! 
although not outstnading, was quite promising considering 
their impromptu performance. 

Coming in third in the 100 yard dash was Scheila Pikes 
with a time of 14.3. Coach Dale Smith sees a great deal of 
potential in Ms. Pikes who does both the 100 yard dash and 
th shot put. She put 30 ft. 9 in. to come in third at the meet. 

Ingrid Anderson is another team member who displays in 
creasing skill ,n her specialty - the discus. At the Bakersfield 
meet, Anderson broke the school record for the discus throw 
In last Friday s meet, she came in third. 

The Regals' greatest problem is their lack of sprinters 
Smith is attempting to recruit sprinters for next year In the 
meantime, the Regals are in need of some. If anyone out there 
wold like to run, feel free to still come out.

Izumo resigns 

By Joel Gibson 

Gary M. Izumo, professor 
of economics, has resigned 
from the teaching staff at 
CLC and plans to move on at 
the conclusion of this semes- 

Izumo has been teaching 
economics at CLC since he 
first arrived in the fall semes- 
ter of 1974. When asked why 
he sent his letter of resigna- 
tion so early, he replied, "I 
submitted the letter at this 
time to allow ample oppor- 
tunity to find a very good 
replacement for me." 

"I don't view my resigna- 
ton as a full-time teacher as 
a statement of dissatisfaction 
with the school. I'm looking 
forward to a close relation- 
ship with the college in the 
future," he added. 

"I'm not sure if I will 
continue teaching full-time

Crime Workshop 
provides information 

By Richard Bier 

"Find out what your problems are and spend your money 
on them," stated Professor Doyle, an Administration of Just- 
ice Instructor. That was the purpose of the four day Crime 
Analysis workshop, held by the A.J. Department on March 3, 
4,31 and April 1. 

The two unit workshop covered the systematic processes 
which are directed at providing timely and pertinent informa- 
tion to aid in patrol strategy and deployment, investigative 
procedures and administrative planning. The six main areas 
which students in the workshop covered were: 1) Identifica- 
tion of evolving and existing crime patterns, 2) Increased case 
clearance via arrest, 3) Provision of investigative leads, 4) Es- 
tablishment of operational planning and deployment for patrol 
elements, 5) Providing support data for crime prevention units, 
1)) Furnishing trend data for overall departmental planning and 

Lieutenant Ralph loimo, head of the Crime Analysis De- 
partment for the Simi Valev Police Department was a guest of 
the workshop. The SVPD has one of the most sophisticated 
Crime Analysis Departments in the area, loimo used present 
materials and data from local areas in the class analysis. 

On May 5 and 6, there will be another workshop that will 
Heal with the implications of new technology and how it af- 
fects crime and also the different ways to combat the techno-

iMeyer, will teach the class. 

and the result is five new 
maintenance workers costing 
CLC nothing. Under the pro- 
gram the government pays all 
salary and benefits. The pro- 
gram is restricted to people 
who have been unemployed 
or on welfare. 

Mr. Walter Miller, head of 
maintenance, calls CETA, "a 
blessing, a real blessing. It 
means a real opportunity for 
somebody who hasn't had a 
job in a while, but the real 
value of this is to the student, 
meaning cutting tuition." Al- 
though it's taken extra time 
to train the men, Miller ex- 
pressed enthusiasm with the 
results. The new workers 
have been assigned to work 
with the grounds department 
crew, electrical crew and the 
auto repairs crew. 

Miller also added that his 
whole department is on their 
toes and anxious to do their 
best to help students out with 
their problems if they just 
dial 451. It seems that there 
has been a gap created be- 
tween students and mainten- 
ance lately. It seems that the 
best thing we students could 
do is to just realize that our 
maintenance men have a 
unique style of working and 
as long as the job gets done, 
along with helping the budget 
to decrease, confidence in 
our hard working mainten- 
ance men should impn

! Momentum for Mission is a stew'ardship'education program 
designed to strengthen financial support for the total mis son 
of the American Lutheran Church. Kindem will fill the posi- 
tion of Executive Director. The program's objective is to inten- 
sify the congregation's sensitivity of its mission to its own 
members as well as to the community, region nation and 
world. His job will be to stress an educational process to helD 
congregations understand all aspects of mission and support 
them financially. v 

Representing the college to the outside world for the last 

five years, Rev. Kindem has spent every Sunday preaching and 

telling the story of CLC in different churches in seven states. 

Raising funds, talking and encouraging kids to come here, he 

sincerely feels that no one else has spoken to more people 

; about the college. 

; Kindem's position at CLC enabled him to work with major 

donors to help establish a network of supporters. During the 

last five years he has acquired a total of $9,180,216 from all 

sources. Breaking this down: $5,382,595 has come from cash 

and gifts received. Outstanding pledges include $1,453,125 for 

the Learning Resource Center and $37,621 in unrestricted 

pledges. Written gift contracts amount to $1,154,000. Support 

from private sources, $8,027,341 added to the amount of gov- 

■ ernmental assistance which is $1,152,875 sums up to a grand 

H total of $9,180,216. The Development Office is responsible 

§f for 20% of financial assistance in the form of grants available 

y[ to the students. 

When asked what feelings he had about leaving CLC, Kin- 
dem replied, "I have the most interesting job on campus;every- 
one wants my job. But I have an even bigger challenge in Min- 
neapolis as National Director. I will be in charge of fifty states."

Those who happened to 
be in KEngsmen park last 
Sunday aflernoon, April 2 
were entertained by an amus- 
ing and enjoyable slapstick 
comedy, "The Hound of 
Everyman" performed by the 
Lamb's Players Street The- 
atre. The thirteen member 
cast included Everyman, 
Everyone, Angel, Satan, 
Death, Bentbrain and several 

Set in medieva] sti k , the 
play tells the story of livery- 
man and his escape from Sa- 
tan and death while searching 
for the truth. Satan, along 
with Death and the demons, 
make several attempts to 
persuade Everyman with theil 
attractive but deadly tempta- 
tions. Their ultimate goal is 
"To Hell with Everyman." 
Angel and Everyone step in 
to lead him to the truth: to 
let Christ into his life and not 
to fear death. 

Kingsmen Casino? 

The Lamb's Players were 
organized in 1970 by Steven 
Terrell. Terrell grew tired of 
portraying characters that 
did not follow his lifestyle, 
so he formed the Lamb's 
Players to emphasize Chris- 
tianity through Street The- 
atre. Originating in Minneso- 
ta with the cold weather it 
was not practical to draw 
audiences outside so the 
troupe moved to San Diego 
where it is currently based. 

As one player commented, 
"We are not looking for 
Christian audiences, although 
today's has been our best 
yet. And for the most part, 
it has been Christian. Our 
goal is outreach and evangel- 
ism to all non-Christians." 

The Lamb's Players are 
sincere in firmly believing 
and establishing their position 
as Christians with the desire 
and interest of spreading 
God's word to all.

New Program Guides for 
radio station KRCL will be 
out this week according to 
Program Director Gordon 

These new guides, now 
being printed by Communi- 
cation Services, will be of a 
more professional nature in 
contrast with guides printed 
earlier. "These guides will be 
at record stores like Music 
Plus and sent to listeners out- 
side of the campus popula- 
tion who request them," says 
Lemke. "The earlier program 
guides were handwritten and 
very simple. These new guides 
are typed and will have a 
few pictures to enhance them. 
They are a lot better looking." 

The program guides con- 
tain a schedule of all KRCL 
music, news and special pro- 
gramming by time blocks. 
They also give a short history

These guides are not the 
only guides available far 
those interested. Guides for 
the campus are available free

faculty from KRCL. To ob- 
tain a guide, just go to the

VegasNight pays off forAMS 

By Alicia Thornton 

"A combination of gam- 
bling and dancing, with host- 
esses and a light show made 

'.for a really great Las Vegas 

; atmosphere," reflected 

Creighton Van Horn, AMS 
President. This w, is describing 

. the AMS Las Vegas Night 
held last Saturday, April I, in 
the CLC gym. 
Las Vegas Night is one of 

; the highlights on the CLC 
campus each semester. Last 
semester it was held in the 

Cafeteria. However with the 
amount of people attending, 
it was crowded. This semes- 
ter it was held in the gym, 
so that not only was there 
gambling and dancing but a 
light show that Doug Ramsey 
staged with the help of Kevin 

The AMS netted S300 for 
the evening which will be used • 
to defray the costs of AMS 
Dodger night on April 21 

Planning for Las Vegas 
Night began approximately 

one and a half months ago 
when Van Horn assigned 
members to committees. 
Brad Hoffman, AMS secre- 
tary, was in charge of set-up 
and clean-up. The set-up took 
a record time of only 30 min- 
utes. Mark Vanlandingham, 
AMS treasurer, was in charge 
of hostesses. Marty Rouse 
was in charge of prizes. There 
were five prizes of which the 
three winners had a choice. 

The top prize went to Ali- 
cia Thornton, $15,000, who 
took a dinner for two at 
Charley Brown's, second 
place went to Mitch Cheselka, 
$7,700, a dinner for two at 
El Torito, and third place 
went to Dan Craviotto 
$7,500, dinner for two at 
Pelicans' Wharf. The last lwo 
prizes, dinner for two at 
Casita Valdez and a pitcher 
of beer at the Pub, will be 
used in a drawing for all the 
hostesses, dealers and nj[

Rexroth shares 
'unique' reading 

r v Carol Solverson "\ 

Wednesday evening, March 29, a good-sized group of stu- 
i nts faculty and administration members gathered in Ny- 
reen' 1 to hear well-known poet Kenneth Rexroth give a 

g «, a Hin0 "Unique" can be used to describe this reading 



IticIi was sponsored by the English department, and acco 
nanied by Japanese music. 

English professor Dr. Labrenz introduced Mr. Rexroth, 
vho then proceeded to introduce his accompanists and the in- 
stilments that they would be playing throughout the evening. 
An ancient Japanese Koto, made of paulonia wood with 13 
strings and 13 moveable bridges, produced sounds like those 
trom a harp which blended well with the sounds from a bam- 
boo flute, a western flute, bells, and chimes, adding a pleasant 
effect to the poetry reading. 

Mr. Rexroth began the evening by reading his favorite Jap- 
anese poem, "Awajashima," and then went on to read some 
Japanese love poems from a book he translated called 100 
More Japanese Poems. These love poems were very explicit 
and to the point, as Mr. Rexroth bad stated. To make these 
readings even more interesting, Mr. Rexroth chanted the poems 
in Japanese first, and then followed with his English transla- 
tions.. Rexroth continued with some of his own poetry, read- 
ing "Void Only," and "Suchness" which both had to do with 
concepts of Buddhism in which he was interested. 

Born on a farm in South Bend, Illinois on December 22, 
1905, Mr. Rexroth has, according to an introduction present- 
ed in "The Norton Anthology of Modern Poetry", aspired to 
become a "veteran of American modernist poetry of the 
Twentieth Century." Also according to this introduction, Rex- 
roth's description of a movement in poetry called Imagism is 
a good account of his own poetry. "Imagism was a revolt against 
rhetoric and symbolism in poetry - a return to direct statement, 
simple, clear images, unpretentious themes, fidelity to objective- 
ly verifiable experience, and strict avoidance of sentimentality. 
I suppose this is the programme of all good poetry anywhere." 

Unlike many poetry readers, Mr. Rexroth always likes to be 
accompanied either by jazz music, or by Japanese music, when 
he reads. He even opened a club called the Green Mask in Chi- 

Modern poet, Kenneth Rexroth, read his own and his trans- 
lated Japanese poetry in Nygreen Hall on March 29.

cago in the Twenties, where poets, including himself, could 
read accompanied by jazz music. 

Besides writing poetry, Mr. Rexroth has many other 
achievements to his name. He has written for quite a few news- 
papers and magazines, including the San Francisco Chronicle, 
and the New York Times Magazine, written a play called 
Beyond the Mountains, translated Greek, Latin, French 
Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese poetry into books, written 
critiques and edited books, painted, and written the words for 
a ballet put on by the San Francisco Ballet called "Original 
Sin." He has won many awards for his works and has made 
many public and TV and radio appearances. His lectures and 
poetry readings have taken him abroad to such places as Fin- 
land, Sweden, Great Britain, Australia, Italy and Japan, and 
also to many of the major colleges across the U.S. 

Mr. Rexroth was a conscientious objector to World War II, 
and after it ended he was responsible for organizing an Anar- 
chist Circle in San Francisco out of which emerged the under- 
ground radio station KPFA, which has a sister station, KPFK, 
here in Los Angeles. 

CLC was very lucky to get Mr. Rexroth to come give a 
poetry reading here as his busy schedule has him returning to 
Japan, where be lived for several years, this week to give poet- 
ry readings and lectures like the one he presented here.

Feeling secure? 

By Tori Nordin 

Are you the residents of CLC, aware that your rights of 
privacy and security are being ignored and abused by your 
peers, your administration and the maintenance department' 
There is no privacy here. How can you feel safe knowing that 
your valuables, including your personal possessions, are at the 
disposal of vandals or those who find humor value in stealing 
such things as underwear? Isn't it frightening to think of those 
who dare to enter your room uninvited at times when the 
room is vacant? 

Personally, I find it very frightening. In fact, returning from 
taster break my roommates and I were surprised by the note, 
"Pederson Laundry Service" that was exchanged for our' 
"undies''. We were left stunned and at the same time disturbed 
by the fact that someone had been in our room when we were 
not. Scanning the room for other possible items that could 
have been pilferred, we noticed that the shower fixtures had 
been replaced. Maintenance had obviously entered and taken 
care of their business without the least bit of notice to us. We 
hadn't even noticed that the fixtures were in need of repair. 

The explanation given by the head of -maintenance, Walt 
Miller, was that during vacations, maintenance must neglect 
outside work to accomplish work orders inside for the con- 
venience of everyone. Since there had never been any com- 
plaints or accusations previously, it was not considered neces- 
sary to inform the students beforehand. 

If you have a feeling of security and think that there are 
only a chosen few who have access to your locked room, stop 
kidding yourself. At a recent Senate meeting, Dean Kragthorpe 
asked of those present how many were not aware of someone 
who had a master key. Out of approximately forty people, 
only one or two said that they were not aware. Keys are not 
hard to come by. Since most of the original locks have re- 
mained, people have accumulated them from past years. To 
remedy this serious situation, we will have to look forward to 
this summer. Miller has definite plans to change all locks on 
campus, this includes all dorms, regardless of expense. But un- 
til then what happens? Are you comfortable knowing that just 
about anyone can get into your room at any time? 

As far as security in the dorms is concerned, Pederson and 
Thompson are protected by the "dependable" and "conveni- 
ent" Card Key Control. That is, they are protected when they 
are not out of order or when various objects are not lodged in 
the door by those who are thoughtful to keep it open for 
others who have forgotten their cards. This brings up the ques- 
tion of why Mt. Clef is so unfortunate or, should I say, special 
to not have key card security. Are the residents of Pederson 
and Thompson more worthy of their right to security and 

For the present time, locks on the doors seem to serve no 
purpose. Obviously these invaders have other means of trespas- 
sing upon private property. I realize that as students we do not 
own the dormitories individually but all that is necessary is 
respect for our rights of privacy and the security in knowing 
that our valuables are assured the best possible safety. 

Lacking Entertainment 
for a Monday night? Tired of 
eating the same old cafeteria 
food? In the mood for some 
good old rag-time from a 
bxie Land Band? You're in 
luck, since Monday, April 10,

In the same issue we a so 
find an article entitle 
'"GnirpsYad"' in which the 

Editorial staff states that tne 
rights of the students were 
overstepped. This, once again, 
is untrue. Every effort was 
made by the Senate to protect 
and uphold the Constitution- 
al rights of the Students, in- 
fact, by holding a referendum 
election, even though it was 
untimely due to the effects 
of a small vocal minority ot 
students, any chance we have 
of hiring any band may be

that the ECHO should be the

Therefore, by editorializing 
? n the front page, the ECHO 
's overlooking their Constitu-

actually acting unconstitu-

tne front page instead of re-

Dear Editor, 

I would like to compli- 
ment Kathy Hitchcox, editor- 
in-chief of the April Fools 
edition, for a very enjoyable 
ECHO issue. I have heard 
many students comment on 
how well the paper was put 
together, Along with this, 

they expressed much pleasure 
in the humor of the articles. 

Thank you Kathy and 
contributing writers for, with- 
out question, one of the fun- 
niest ECHO issues this year.

Interim spurs 
students' interests 

By Jane Lee 

Interim means different things to CLC students. Some re- 
gard this month as a time to unwind from the pressures of the 
fall semester. Others use the month of January to pursue indi- 
vidual interests. Some students reserve this time for taking 
courses outside of their chosen major. 

One of the reasons I chose to come to CLC is because of 
the interim program. Those who argue that this break is 
less are not using the program to their advantage. There are 
endless advantages that many students take for granted. In- 
terim should be a time for relaxed creativity and growth. 

There are freedoms during this time that do not exist dur- 
ing the regular fall semester. The pass-fail grading system repre- 
sents that freedom. Taking the pressure off making the grade is 
healthy in an educational environment every once in a while. 
The interim is the best place for this to happen. 

Without the interim, many students would not have the 
opportunity to explore interests in an independent study situ- 
ation, or have the opportunity to travel to a foreign land. 
Having the freedom to take off by yourself for a month and 
study on your own is something that is unique to schools oper- 
ating with the interim. 

Those people who fail to see its value are probably not 
taking advantage of its freedoms. 

Being a liberal arts college, CLC has everything to gain from 
the interim and students should not pass up the opportunity 
to grow creatively and'intellectually from its many courses.

Cal Lutheran's volleyball team seeking a berth in the NAIA 
national playoffs, rebounded from a disappointing loss last 
Thursday to Cal State Northridge b Y defeating Cal Poly 
Pomona Friday night and the San Luis Obispo junior varsity 
Saturday afternoon. 

Going into the home contest with Northridge Thursday 
evening, CLC held a 4-1 record The Kingsnien picked up a win 
in the first game by a 15-13 score and it looked as though they 
might continue their winning way s CSUN had other thoughts, 
however, and proceeded t Q dump the Kingsmen in the next 
three games 15-10, 15-6, 15.5 Northridge, then leading their 
division (NCAA), was very effective hitting in the middle, cap- 
italizing on Cal Lutheran's lack of coverage. In the final game 
it was an inability to pass the ball that put the home team 
away as Northridge served f or seven straight points at one 
stretch. CLC could not manage to bump the ball up to get a 
good set. 

The next night, Friday, the purple and gold clad Kingsmen 
traveled to Cal Poly Pomona to play their perennially tough 
squad. Again the Kingsmen jumped out to a 1-0 match lead by 
taking the first game 15-13. Pomona then fought back and 
scraped out a victory in the second game, 18-16, tying the 
match score at one apiece. From there it was all CLC as they 
won the next two games 15.3 15-12, leaving their season 
record at 5 and 2. It was the first loss to an NAIA school 
Pomona had experienced this season. 

Capping an extremely tough week, the Kinusmen set out 
for San Luis Obispo the next day to play the host teams junior 
varsity squad. Poly's volleyball program, always one of the 
best in California, provided a tightly contested match for the 
visitors who upped their overall season record to 6-2 by defeat- 
ing San Luis Obispo in five games. The first game went to the 
home team, along with the officiating, by a score of 15-8. 
CLC, hitting well in the next two games, took a 2-1 match lead 
with scores of 15-8, 15-6. Then, as has been their problem 
throughout much of the year, they let down and dropped the 
next game 15-8. Their killer instinct lacking, they have a ten- 
dency to let up in the middle portions of their matches, there- 
by giving up games that they should win. With the match tied 
going into the final game, the Kingsmen awoke from their 
lethargy and played the way they are capable of playing, wal- 
lopine the Mustangs 15-3. 

Then, last Tuesday night, the Kingsmen hosted Pomona 
Pitzer College, a team they had played earlier in the season and 
struggled to defeat in five games. This time around they show- 
ed no mercy downing the visitors in three lopsided games 15-0, 
15-3, 15-5. It seemed all the Kingsmen had to do was serve the 
ball and let Pomona make the mistakes. 

Tomorrow the Cal Lutheran team travels to Ambassador 
College, already a victim once this year. The Ambassador team 
covers extremely well on hits and also blocks effectively. They 
have some hitters that could also give some problems to CLC's 
defense. Should the Kingsmen once again get around these ob- 
stacles, another win could be added on to their season record. 

CLC gains biggest track 
victory of the season 

By Carol Solverson, 

Bad weather once again 
kept the Kingsmen track and 
field team from competing 
this past Friday. CLC was 
scheduled to meet Ambas- 
sador in a dual meet, until 

forced its 

n eel la 

Luck for the Kingsmen was 
different though over Easter 
vacation as Saturday, March 
18, they came home with a 
first place finish and trophy 
in the annual Redlands Invi- 
tational meet. 

Going into the final event 
of this 18 team meet, the 
Kingsmen mile relay team 
needed to beat Cal State Los 
Angeles in order to gain first 
place in the meet and break 
the tie between them and 
CSLA, and that's exactly 

what they did. Clocking a 
3:20.6, their best time of the 
season, the relay team com- 
posed of Jeff Kennedy, Doni 
Grant, Greg Togneitti, and 
Bob Eddy, finished second in 
the event and this was good 
enough to win the team 
crown for the Kingsmen, as 
SCLA could only manage to 
get fourth. Their 3:20.6 is 
second n-ily to a 3:19.7 in 
Cal Lutheran track and field 

This meet was very impor- 
tant for a couple members of 
the Kingsmen track team as 
their efforts qualified them 
in their events for the up- 
coming NAIA nationals to be 
held at Abilene Christian Col- 
lege in Texas in May. Quali-

By Thoedore T. Herhold 

The CLC Equestrian Team 
will host their first annual 
intercollegiate horse show 
Saturday, April 8. The show 
will be held at the CLC Eques- 
trian Center. 

The show will include 
both western and hunt seat 
divisions, with six different 
colleges competing. UCLA, 
Fresno State, Cal Poly San 
Luis Obispo, Cal Poly Pomo- 
na, and Reedley, as well as 
our own CLC team, will 
compete head to head with 
the winning team taking 
home the championship 

CLC- team featuring 

Tennis team 
tough year 

By Theodore T. Herhold 

The CLC Men's Tennis 
Team lost another 9-0 decisi- 
on to Biola College last week, 
dropping their record to a 
discouraging 2-1 2. 

The only highlights of the 
match were close third set 
losses by Rick Bier aid the 
doubles team of Shawn Howie 
and Jim Rower. The scores 
were 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, and 4-6, 
7-5, 7-6 respectively. 

Grant Smith, although off 
to a rough start in his first 
season as head tennis coach, 
said after the match, "I think 
we're still improving. Without 
our top players, the guys on 
the lower part of the ladder 
are getting better competi- 
tion. I think this will make us 
tougher in future matches." 
The two top players weren't 
able to show up to the match. 

The men's team will be 
traveling to Las Vegas today 
where they will be playing in 
three matches over the week- 

some of the best riders and 
horses on the west coast, 
recently displayed their talent 
at the Santa Barbara Inter- 
collegiate Horse Show in 
January. CLC, fielding only 
three out of a possible five 
riders, walked away with the 
team championship, winning 
by over forty points. CLC 
also won their own invita- 
tional show last fall, and 
hasn't lost a show except for 
a close second place finish at 
Pomona in November. 

CLC's team is made up of 
Mary Jo Stromberg, Eileen 
Cox, Lynn Westlund, Laura 
Widdows, and Becky Mitchell. 
These five riders were chosen 
from the CLC Equestrian 
Club on the basis of their 
ability and past horse show 

Competition will begin at 
8:30 in the morning, with 
hunters and jumpers sched- 
uled to show first. Admission 
is free and food and beverages 
will be available all day.

with a toss of I63'6". 

Javelin thrower Don Myles, 
CLC's only other first place' 
winner of the day, had his 
best throw of the year record- 
ed at 205'6". Other Kings-

Eddy who composed the 440 
relay team that came in third 
with a time of 43.1 , and also 
the sprint medley relay team 
that clocked a 3:47.7 to place 

CLC ended the meet with 
a total of 61 points and 
SCLA came in second with 
57. Some of the other team 
totals were Pamona Pitzer, 
43, Pt. Loma, 39, and Uni- 
versity of Las Vegas, Nevada, 

Coach Don Green was real- 
ly impressed with his team's 
fine performance, expecially 
since the Redlands Invita- 
tional is such a big meet and 
quoted, "This is one of the 
very best wins CLC has ever 
had in track and field." 

Continuing their season, 
the Kingsmen will travel to 
Riverside next Saturday 
where they will compete in 
the UC Riverside Invitational, 
With events starting at 4:30 
pm this meet should prove to 
be quite interesting as it will 
be the team's first night meet 
of the season. 

Softball and volleyball starting 

By Thoedore T. Herhold 

Intramurals starts its soft- 
ball part of the program to- 
day, running every Friday 
through mid-March. 

Softball will be a coed 
event, with four girls and 
four guys playing for each 
team. Six teams will be com- 
peting this year, along with 
the faculty team. Although it 
is too late to form your own 
team you can still join a team 
already in existence. Just get 
in touch with Jim Hanson at 

Jim, who is the program's 
student coordinator, says the 
emphasis for this year's soft- 
ball program will be "mainly 
to have fun." In trying to get 
away from competition, there 
will be no records kept of 
wins and losses. 

Intr.amural volleyball will 
also get under way later this 
month, with five or six games 
scheduled. There will be only 
one league this year with sev- 
en teams, composed of four 
guys and two girls, playing 
once again "for fun". 

Intramural basketball is 
also "going good" according 
to Jim. More prople are parti- 
cipating this year than past 
years and the two leagues 
(one for competition-minded 
students and the other for 
those who are just out to en- 

joy themselves), just institu- 
ted this year, seem like they 
will become a permanent 
part of the intramural pro- 

The A-leacue is composed 

of eight teams which are 
"fairly evenly matched," says 
Jim. With three games remain- 
ing, the "Moonshine Kids" 
and the "Assasins" are in 
first place with 4-0 records.

Urban Semester augments class choices 

By Theodore T. Herhold, 

The Urban Semester is alive and doing well. That seems to be the latest concensus from Los 
Angeles, where eleven CLC students are spending their semester. 

Most of us here on campus have heard of the Urban Semester from time to time, but just as 
many of us don't really know what it is. I went down there recently, spent part of the day with 
these students, and found out just exactly what the Urban Semester is all about. 

As I walked in the door to get my first glimpse of the students and their living arrangements, 
I was surprised to see five of six different students who I knew here on campus, but whom I 
hadn't honestly noticed were gone this semester. They were sitting casually around the living 
room of one of the cottages where the students are staying, sipping tea, finishing up breakfast, 
and talking about whose turn it was to go to the store next and buy groceries for the week. 

I was given a warm welcome, and then people began to settle down and get ready for the 
morning class with Dr. Garofalo. This particular morning, two women from "HEAT" (Hunger 
Ecumenical Action Taskforce) were going to speak to the group on child nutrition and welfare 
problems confronting the city of Los Angeles. 

Later in the day most of them would be taking off to different parts of the city, where they 
work for various agencies and organizations, some up to twenty hours a week. The students 
would then come back to their cottages and get ready for dinner, which they prepare themselves. 
After dinner they usually sit around and discuss the day's activities with each other, watch TV, 
read up for the next day's class, or go out on the town as a group. 

It's strange to see these eleven students getting along so well after living with each other for 
over a month. Although each person is completely independent, running their own affairs and 
making their own decisions every day, they still remain close as a group. The communal-type 
living arrangements and the sense of responsibility towards each other seem to be the catalysts 
which bring the whole program together. 

The Urban Semester was originally set up as an outgrowth of the Urban Interim. The pur- 
pose behind the Urban Semester is to provide a new experience for the student outside of the 
straight academic life, and to show what life in a big city such as Los Angeles is all about. The 
semester, spearheaded by Pam Jolicoeur of the Sociology Department, and presently run bv Dr.

1978 Great Western Tourna- 
ment at the University of Nevada 
campus. The three day tourna- 
ment hosted 40 colleges and 
Universities from all over the 
western states. 

Alicia Thornton and Pete 
Sandberg paired up as CLC's 
CEDA team and did quite well 
as a novice team debating some 
of the most experienced teams 
in the west. Jane Lee debated 
with George Chronis of Cal State

teams in CEDA. The Lee-Chron- 
is team held a substantial 3-3 
record. The United States Air

CLC did not come home 
empty handed, however. In the 
individual events, Jane Lee 
brought home a first place

Olsen Road grading 
set for August 

By Steve Ruben, 

After the recent meeting 
of the California Lutheran 
College Board of Regents it 
was disclosed that Olsen 
Road will be graded down 
from Mount Clef Blvd. on 
out through where it becomes 
two-lane. President Mark 
Mathews commented that, 
we are now negotiating with 
the city of Thousand Oaks 
for an agreement for a con- 
tract for completion of Olsen 
Road at below grade. Even- 
tually the road should go 

down 10 or 12 feet so the cars 
going by won't pollute this 

This, however, is not a 
new idea. It was decided to 
be done back in 1962-63, but 
nothing was done about it 
until Mathews took over as 
President in 1972. 

The project should be 
ipleted in late summer, 


sometime in August. >w 

The next Board of re- 
gents meeting is scheduled 
for April 17. 

Campus security 
remains a problem 

By Tori Nordin 

Since Easter vacation an 
epidemic of burglaries con- 
centrating in Mt. Clef Dorm 
has magnified the concern 
for the security and privacy 
of CLC students. Margaret 
Patterson, a Mt. Clef resident, 
suffered a loss of approxi- 
mately $700-800 in jewelry, 
including an opal pendant 
valued at $500. Jeanne Win- 
ston is missing her new watch 
and ten dollars. Jackie Stoker 
had $200 taken from her 
room. Karen Lutz, Connie 
Bowers and Candy Cooper 
have experienced the loss of 
possessions and money due 
to the suspected break-ins. 
These are some of the major 
losses that have been re- 

Dean Kragthorpe admits, 
"Crime is mathematically in- 
creasing with the growth of 
the community." There has 
been an. increase in the 
amount of juvenile delin- 
quency. Five youngsters of 
the community were appre- 
hended by the police over 

Easter break. One juvenile 
was found trying to break 
into the Barn. According to 
Kragthorpe there has been 
$10,000 recorded in losses 
due to theft and vandalism 
this fiscal year. The amount 
is climbing with recent losses. 

Proposed projects from 
Buchanan's office include the 
replacement of all locks and 
a much stricter policy on the 
distribution of keys. Crash 
doors have been ordered for 
Mt. Clef. This "panic hard- 
ware "will allow students to 
push out the doors but make 
them impossible to open 
from the outside. 

Kragthorpe urges, "The 
students' responsibility is to 
watch out for their own pos- 
sessions while changes are 
being made." Personnel 
changes in maintenance and 
security are probable. 

Mt. Clef Head Resident, 
Mike Bartosch, in dealing 
with the problem, encourages 
students to "cooperate and 
keep their doors locked." 

This model was a part of tin 
during the Conejo Valley Beau 
the CLC gymnasium. Hundreds 
attended the event on campus.

1:00 am, and will be spon- 
sored by the Social/Publicity 

"This year we're running it 
on a Thursday because the 
Hungry Tiger, which has the 
biggest banquet room in the 
area, wouldn't let us have the

wouldn't be enough money 
in it for them compared to 
a complete banquet," explain-

'Pooh' plays to full house 

By Maia Siewertsen 

Playing for two full houses, 
CLC's spring Children's Theatre 
production of "Winnie the 
Pooh" proved a major success 
at its Opening Saturday, April 
8 in the CLC Little Theatre. 

Almost 550 parents and 
children attended the two show- 
ings while the box office had to 
turn away an estimated 225. 
Don Haskell, director, is pleased 
with "Pooh's" success, but gives 
the credit to assistant director 
Sondra Carganilla. "I got the 
ball rolling, but then Sondra 
took over and did a terrific job." 

"Wlnnfe 1 thtrPoOh" Is afso a 
milestone for the majority of its 
cast. For eight out of the eleven 
members it is their first drama 
performance. ' Haskell is proud 
of the members for their dedi- 
cation ...a_nd__imaginatiun. "All 

the parts in 'Winnie the Pooh' 
are pretty well known, but 
each person really made their 
part their own." 

Success is not only counted 
in box office totals, but in 
Children's Theatre, audience re- 
action is a substantial part, of a 
triumph. The actors and act- 
resses of "Pooh" succeeded in 
drawing the children's attention 
with delightful comedy and 
humor directed toward the 
children, not their parents or 
the back of the theatre. Per- 
formances deserving special 
commendation were given by 
Don Schulze as Winnie and 
Darcy Durant as Roo. Schulze's 
Winnie was a rofy-poly, wide- 
eyed, baby-voiced bear with a 
penchant for trouble and honey. 
Schulze, who had never been 

stage before, delighted tht 

audience with whimsical antics, 
especially his little softshoe rou- 
tine singing "Isn't it funny/How 
a bear likes honey/Buzz, Buzz.." 
while the other animals crowded 
around in fear of the dreaded 
new animal Kanga and her baby 

Darcy Durant played Roo as 
the playful child longing for a 
moment out from under his 
mother's wing. When she finally 
did, she hid in a cave, boasting 
that she finally could get dirty, 
"I've got germs ALL over me!" 

If Saturday's performances 
are-an indication, "Winnie the 
Pooh" should have a successful 
tour. "Pooh's" final perfor- 
mances will be Friday April 14, 
4:00. at Acacia Elementary 
School and Monday April 17, 
4:00 at Brookside Elementary

Have you ever traveled 
around the world, sampling 
foods from those countries 
you were able to visit? No? 
Well, your chance (to sample 
the foods, at least) is coming 
to CLC! The International 
Students Dinner, which will 
take place in the New Earth 
on Friday, April 21, from 
5-9 pm, will be an experience 
you'll never forget. 

At this special dinner, 
there will be a variety of 
dishes originating from many 
countries in the world. A- 
mong others, some of the 
regions represented will be 
the Trust Territory of the 
Pacific, the Phill jppines. Afri- 
ca, Mexico, Iran, and Jamaica. 
The purpose of this event is 
to expose those interested 
CLC students, faculty, and 
administrators to the various 
cultures which can be found 
here through our internation- 
al students. 

The charge for this special 
dinner will be $1.00 for CLC 
students and $4.50 for faculty 
and administrators. Since the 
dinner is limited to 50 stu- 
dents and 50 faculty and/or 
administrators, tickets will be 
sold by Ruth Smith in the 
Student Affairs Office and in 
the faculty secretarys' office 
on a first-come, first-serve 

The proceeds from this 
dinner will go to offset the 
cost of the dinner and for the 
purchase of a United Nations 
flag. The International Stu- 
dents hope that this flag will 
represent CLC's commitment 
and support to the interna- 
tional students program. 

Your support is needed! 
Let the International Stu- 
dents help you understand 
and appreciate the cultures 
md culinary arts of their 
ountries. It's an adventure 
ou shouldn't miss!

Many of us had a hard 
time keeping up with irregu- 
lar time signatures and chang- 
ing metres, some couldn't 
understand how peope could 
"get into" this type of music- 
but none of us who came to,

Greek folk singersand dancers 
left unaffected by the show. 

The singers performed first 
with traditional Greek folk 
songs, contemporary songs, 
and songs which originated in 
Greece and which also be- 
came popular here, such as 
"Boy on a Dolphin" and 
"Never on Sunday". The 
acoustic guitar and bass were 
familiar accompaniment in- 
struments, but the bazouki 
was a novelty. It has a shape 
and sound like a mandolin 
or balalaika, and is the instru- 
ment which gives the charac- 
terstic sound to Greek music. 

Next came the dancers in 
Greek native costume-the 
men in black and white and 

the women with gorgeous 
black jumpers with gold em- 
broidery. The dancing was 
powerful with large move- 
ments-but always graceful, 
even when the music was fast 
and the enthusiasm high. 
After a break they changed 
costume, reappearing as the 
Cretan dance ensemble, to 
dance in a slightly different 
style, more animated than 
before. It wasn't long before 
the audience was totally in- 
volved, clapping hands, and a 
few brave souls accepted an 
invitation to try to learn the

p Combing her many talents in drama, music, and radio di: 
. ^keying with her outgoing and witty personality, CLC senioL 
Maia Siewertsen was able to acquire a job this summer that is 
qiute unlike mos£ other summer jobs. Ms. Siewertsen will be 
videotaping a TV series for children called "The Bippity Bop- 
pity Bunch, with Ears and Maia" which should air this Septem- 
ber and is designed to entice children that do not go to Sun- 
day School, to visit Sunday School, if not attend it regularly. 

-During the 13 shows that comprise "The Bippity Boppity 
Bunch," Maia will be sharing the duties of cohost with Ears, a 
pOppet dog, who is manuevered by well-known marionettist 
Roland Sylwester. Ms. Siewertsen and Mr. Sylwester get along 
quite well on the set and she quoted, "Mr. Sylwester is very 
fun to work Withy very; creative, and very easy to ad lib with." 

-Sponsored by the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church, each 
show in the series is designed to bring across a basic Christian 
viewpoint to those kids that are watching it and get them to 
want to attend Sunday School. The show is mainly aimed at 
tire first through fifth grade levels, but this is not to say that 
adults can't gain anything from the show also. Each show will 
be- 30 minutes long and will include an introduction by Maia 
ab>ut the subject of the show, a fifteen minute film, and fif- 
teen minutes worth of videotape interspersed among the film 
wfiere Maia and Ears talk about the film, and what it has to 
say. Ears will, through a trial and error process, learn some- 
thing new each show and the kids watching will be able to re- 
late to his experiences and what he learns from them.

be-rcad.- A. -special- incentive for children who write in is a spe-

cohost with Ears, 

".'Maia was itrsi approached about this job at a friend's party 
in-'Charinel Islands, by another friend, Mrs. Meyer, who is on 
the Committee funding this series, and who has known Maia 
since she was only a couple of years old. Mrs. Meyer told her 
a -little bit about the children's show that they were planning 
and asked Maia if she would want to audition for the part, 
sDice she thought Maia was qualified and could do a good job. 

.".Audition day finally came and Maia arrived at the TV sta- 
tion to find ir had become "one big zoo." Kids were running 
att over the Place and screaming. Maia couldn't believe what 
she was seeing. It turned out that the two other finalists aud- 
itioning had scripts with them that they had been preparing 
for six weeks and that they had brought kids with them to 
help i hem out. These two finalists proceeded to audition, hut 
the producer and the committee both felt that neither one of 
them had what was needed to make the series go off just right. 
Then it was Maia's turn to be under the lights. Nobody had 
informed her about preparing a script of bringing any children 
with her and maybe this was all for the best. "Where was I to 
find children around CLC anyway?" she commented. So with- 
out script and without kids she proceeded to audition. Her 
audition consisted of having a conversation with Ears, the pup- 
pei. Maia recalled the situation as having struck her as funny 
and she explained, "Here I was sitting with this puppet dog, an 

ate object, and I had to have a conversation with it, I 
had no idea what I was going to talk about so I just started out 
-by asking Ears what school he went to and if he had any girl- 
friends and went on from there. I quess the producer and 
committee were impressed for they asked me to have first, a 
secular conversation, and then a spiritual one with Ears. So I 
did, and this completed the audition." 

Maia had performed well, for a few days later she received a 
call from Mrs. Meyer who informed here that she had secured 
the job. Final word from the Committee came a couple weeks 
later. Maia stated that her getting the job was just a case of 
"being in the right place at the right time" and that God was 
taking care of her. 

The pilot for "The Bippity Boppity Bunch" was videotaped 
at Ambassador College in March. Maia was joined in the pro- 
duction by other CLC locals. Kevin Thompson was floor man- 
ager; Janine Ramsy Jessup did Maia's make-up; and Jay Libby, 
head of CLC's TV studio, is associate director for the series. 
The pilot had to do with the concept of saying thank-you to 
others and especially to God, and Maia was very satisfied with

- Ing shows this summer. The show should air this Sep- 

- tember. . .on Sunday mornings. 

the way it turned cut. She learned a lot about people and how 
to be patient while making this pilot. 

Having already taped the pilot for the series, Maia and com- 
pany will be videotaping the remaining twelve shows during six 
weeks of this summer. The show should air in September and 
will be seen on Sunday mornings. The channel it is seen on will 
depend on what network affiliate decides to sponsor the show. 

What will Maia do with all the money she will make from 
this series? Well, actually she's had that part planned out for 
quite a long time. After five years of college, and always work- 
ing, Maia feels she deserves a nice long vacation and quoted, "I 
want to get the heck out of here." She and a friend plan to 
spend some time touring Greece, Italy, Egypt, and Israel this 
summer after she finishes videotaping. 

Maia's experience, talents, and personality seem to make 
her the perfect choice for the role she will be performing in 
"The Bippity Boppity Bunch." Maia states that "It's not ex- 
actly 60 Minutes," but what's important is that she feels right 
at home performing her role because she is teaching and por- 
traying something that she believes

Letters to the 

To Dave Hagen, 

I don't resent your usage 
of the word "lie" because I 
know how totally untrue it 
is. Anyone with a knowledge 
of the facts on the issue will 
too. Anyone else probably 
won't care. 

First of all the headline 
"Senate bypasses Constitu- 
tion" is not a byline. A by- 
line tells who wrote the arti- 

Secondly it is not com- 
pletely false. On the con- 
trary, it is completely true! 
The senate directly author- 
ized Joel Gibson to contact 
the group "Firefall" as soon 
as possible after that senate 
meeting (March 12) which he 
did that Tuesday. I talked to 
him Tuesday night to verify 
this. According to the consti- 
tution (I assume yours reads 

the same as mine) if a refer- 
endum is petitioned for, the 
referendum must be held be-, 
fore any action can take 
place. This was not the case. 
Had Firefall accepted (Were 
lucky they didn't) it would 
have been a contractual ob- 




days before the "referendum 
vote was even held. Does this 
constitute final say by the 
students to you? Perhaps the 
contract could have been 
broken. It would have pre- 
sented a colossal hassle that 
would not have been neces- 
sary had the senate waited- 
The fact that they did not is 
unconstitutional. Read the 
constitution, you might learn 

Thirdly, you state that 
they allowed everyone to ex- 

f re » their point of view d 
'ore senate voted. I just point- 
Jf 1 out how untrue this is. 
N °w I'd like to ask how they 
c °uld express their point of 
Jew when they didn't even 
know what they were voting 
°»- What did the ballot say? 
It said yes or no. On what? 
D 'd you assume that every- 
one knew what was going on, 
a " the latest developments, 
jnd all the ramifications? 
Who gives you the right to 
assume" this? 

Your next paragraph 
states that because of this 
headline the paper was edi-

Interest in award ceremonies fades 

By Robyn Saleen 

Awards, like the Oscars, 
the Emmys, tp<* Grammy's, 
and so on and so forth, have 
gradually faded from my in- 
terest. For one thing, the 
programs seem like forums 
for other talented folk, be- 
sides those nominated, to dis- 
play themselves. 

Besides that, the yearly 
awarding of trophies suggests 
to me a sort of token recog- 
tition, an attitude of "well- 
it's-that -time-of-the-year- 
again" Subsequently, judges' 
decisions on what award to 
give who seem to be based 
solely on popularity and 
financial success. But popular 
opinion has never seemed 
like an accurate measure of 
quality, to me. 

So what is the point of 
giving awards? A serious act- 
or, musician, writer, etc... 
considers him or herself to be 
an artist in his field. The indi- 
viduals who excel and receive 

high acclaim are hopefully 
those who utilize their talents 
to the best of their ability to 
create a work of art. This is 
what I expect from all artists 
in whatever area of entertain- 
ment or culture they work. It 
seems, thus, that an artist 
would be satisfied with a sense 
of personal accomplishment, 
and favorable public opinion 
would simply be an added 

Because of its off-beat 
style, it was with great sur- 
prise that I learned Woody 
Allen's "Annie Hall " had 
won virtually the highest 
awards. "Annie Hall", in my 
opinion, is an excellent film. 
I would imagine Woody Allen 
feels the same way. Ironically, 
Allen felt that playing clari- 
net in a jazz night-club was 
more worth his while than 
being present at the awards. 
Apparently it is enough for 
him to have created the film 
for others to enjoy and ex- 

perience. He did not need to 
be recognized at a "gala 

"Annie Hall" is an artist's 
itatement, as is "Star Wars", 
'Julia", "The Goodbye Girl", 
etc., etc... All of the films 
are significant because of this. 
To give one film in particu- 
lar an award for so-called 
outstanding achievement 

over another seems rather 

Woody Allen's absence 

and apparent unconcern for 
the occasion will hopefully 
set an example for the public 
as well asother artists. Beauty 
and art can stand alone and 
can be enjoyed by those sen- 
sitive and perceptive enough 
to realizetheir many different 
aspects. Awards occasion can 
tell us nothing. As the field 
for artists' expression, we can 
remain our own judges and 
we should learn to draw from 
these expressions all that we 

Discrimination against 
women's sports 

By Sara K. Christenson 

Although women's sports 
at CLC are on the upswing 
and more women are involved 
in sports as local, regional, 
and national leagues for 
women have been organized 
and although there is an in- 
crease in participation and 
student/public awareness and 
women's sports are becoming 
recognized as a credit to the 
institution of which they are 
a part, the fact remains that 
women's sports at CLC are 
still hindered by the same 
traditional discrimination: 
lack in facilities, coaching 
and funding, bias in favor of 
the men in practice schedul- 
ing, programs and bias even 
in coverage in the college and 
local newspapers. 

The men's athletic depart- 
ment offers, ten inter-collegi- 
ate programs, two of which 
have J.V. teams. The women's 
department has only four. 
Five of the men's team sports 
have a coach who has full- 
time affiliation with the col- 
lege. The women have one. 
The men are given priority 
of facilities; that is, time, 
space and equipment. 

Facilities are one of the 
major porblem areas for the 
women. Even though there 
was a sizable number of wo- 
men out for gymnastics, it 
had to be dropped because 

there was no place for them 
to practice. The gym was be- 
ing occupied by the men's 
basketball team and K-2 with 
the wrestling team. The wo- 
men's team could use the 
stage, but that was impracti- 
cal. So, the women lost out. 

Scheduling of men and 
women's sports in the gym 
and other facilities is biased. 
The men'steams may practice 
in the afternoon, the women 
in the evening. "Practicing 
after dinner is phisiologically 
and psychologically detri- 
mental, " stated Dr. Nena A. 
Amundson, the head of wo- 
men's athletics, in an inter- 
view earlier this week. "It 

also cuts into people's study 
time and that means fewer 
people out for sports." Sche- 
duling should" be reorganized 
so that both men and women 
make use of the facilities 
during the prime time (3:30 - 
6:00) instead of the women 
always practicing during the 

CLC has no
